OKCupid: Sexiest Accents

Posted: Updated:

Is the New Jersey accent really sexy? It is according to a new survey!

Dating website OKCupid ranked the top five sexiest accents in North America based on a survey of 2,000 men and women who use the site.

Here's the list:

Seven percent of people said that the New Jersey accent makes them weak at the knees.

10 percent said they like the New England accent.

13 percent say a Western accent is charming.

16 percent like the New York accent.

And the most attractive accent, Southern.

Surprisingly, more people ranked the Canadian accent as sexy than the number who ranked the Midwestern of Mid-Atlantic accent.

Watch the full segment above to see what Mike, Sheinelle, and Karen had to say about the results. Especially, as our anchors pointed out, that the Southern accent seems to also be stereotyped as not intelligent.
