How was Michigan just named one of the least sexy states in the country?

Big 7 Travel recently asked their social media audience of 1.5 Million people to rate how sexy the 50 states are.  Not a very scientific study my any means.  We have no way of knowing how many of the 1.5 million people that responded to the survey have ever been to Michigan.  If they have, where in Michigan?

Before we get Michigan's low ranking in this survey.  Let's take a look at the sexiest states in America according to this survey.

The 10 Sexiest States In America

10th. New York
Do… Do people think Donald Trump is sexy? We can only assume that New York’s sex appeal comes from its sassy locals and style.

9th. Massachusetts
Maybe it’s the irresistible accent, maybe it’s the sexy prestige of Harvard University. Either way, people find Bostonians and the state in general very appealing.

8th. Louisiana
Make your way to the Deep South for this melting pot of French, African, American and French-Canadian cultures that’s considered a beautiful state.

7th. Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania ranks impressively high as a sexist state, as well having one of the sexiest accents (Philly). An all-round sexy state.

6th. Texas
For many, Texas is the sexiest state but it didn’t top the poll this time. That’s not exactly “alright, alright, alright”…

5th. Hawaii
Being perceived as pure paradise does wonders for sex appeal. The birthplace of Barack Obama is voted as being among the most attractive states in the US.

4th. California
Californian beach vibes, San Fran Silicon Valley startups and Hollywood all appeal when it comes to perceiving the sexiness of people born and bred here.

3rd. Florida
Florida has a wonderful mix of cultures, making it a beautifully diverse and sexy place to be. It seems that the view of Floridians as attractive lives on.

2nd. Colorado
The impressive score of Colorado people’s sexiness proves that the state is making waves in more ways than one.

1st. Illinois
And the top spots of the sexiest states in America? Illinois takes first place and easily topped our poll for 2019. Who could disagree with this? It’s no wonder that so many of the celebrities, sportspeople and singers that come from here are outrageously attractive.


The 10 Least Sexy States In America

1st. Nebraska
Not even Marlon Brando could save it from getting voted the least sexiest state in America.

2nd. Alaska
Alaska scored among the lowest of the sexiest states in America. But look, they do have beautiful scenery.

3rd. New Jersey
Is the stereotypical false tan or hair gel? Maybe it’s just the accent.

4th. Alabama
We’re sorry Alabama, we’re sure you’re lovely. But sexy? Clearly not.

5th. Maine
Maine might be a beautiful state, but it turns out that not a lot of people hold the birth place of Patrick Dempsey aka “McDreamy” in high regard…

6th. West Virginia
West Virginia’s comedic exports didn’t do much to lift the country’s opinion of the not-so-sexy locals, unfortunately.

7th. Utah
Utah’s score is surprising for a state that has produced models and actresses such as Chrissy Teigen and Loretta Young.

8th. Oklahoma
While Oklahoma-born Brad Pitt is considered super sexy by many fans, Oklahomians scored poorly overall.

9th. Michigan
The famousTwilight star, Taylor Lautner, was clearly not top of people’s minds when scoring Egypt.

10th. Kentucky
Bourbon and bluegrass tunes might be hella sexy, but Kentuckians are considered to be the opposite. It’s one of the least sexiest states in the USA.


Somehow, America thinks Kentucky is sexier than Michigan.  I get that this website used the word "sexy" with no explanation.  They didn't specify if the word was meant to describe the residents, the fall colors, even the politics.  Just the vague word "sexy."  But I do not understand how Pure Michigan would rank the 9th least sexy state in America.  All of these people should enjoy Lake Michigan in the Summer and a road trip up North during fall colors and do this over.  I demand a recount.
