A recent study sheds an ugly light on Indiana.

Zippia compared each state in the U.S. with the following metrics for this study: obesity rates, income, interest in hair, clothes and grooming and number of physically active residents.  Even STD rates come into play.

Here are the good, the bad and the ugly results.  Let's start with the 10 states with the least attractive people according to this Zippia study.

1 Mississippi

2 Missouri

3 Alabama

4 Arkansas

5 South Carolina

6 Oklahoma

7 North Carolina

8 Tennessee

9 Indiana

10 West Virginia

Hoosiers were ranked #9 in the overall unattractive people scale.  Indiana had the 14th worst obesity rate and the 4th worst activity level.  Luckily, Indiana only had the 23rd highest number of STD cases.

So, where did Michigan and Ohio end up on the list? Overall, Ohio was the 14th and Michigan was the 15th least attractive states in the U.S.

I think the big surprise in this study would be the state with the most attractive people.  Below is the ten most attractive states according to this study.

1 New Jersey
2 Hawaii
3 California
4 Massachusetts
5 New York
6 Colorado
7 Connecticut
8 Rhode Island
9 Alaska
10 Arizona
