I think this is another chick who is being judged on something other than her looks(funny only here in this thread is that considered a bad thing when it comes to women). Maybe it is the country music thing or the American Idol thing, but I think she is objectively a little prettier than 50%.

That said... sideways for Ms. Underwood. Objectively speaking, she's reasonably attractive, I suppose, but nothing about her really jumps out at me. Her music isn't really my sort of thing either.
Eh.. I actually think brunettes can be generic... redheads not so much cause there are far fewer of them...

Through TV and movies (and porn, but let's not go there), the generic one-size-fits-all idea of a hot girl to appeal to men is always a blonde chick with huge tits.
Hence every not so great looking chick thinks they can instantly make themselves hotter by dying their hair blonde. There are a lot of them around too. Therefore the idea of the blonde has become generic. So some people are just tired of the blonde look.

That's just my personal take on it. Obviously there's nothing stopping a blonde from being as hot as a brunette or redhead, but it's just become so common that there are too many generic blondes drowning out the hot ones.

My post is so superficial and shallow my brain hurts. Sorry.

I've come to the conclusion that I don't understand these threads at all and what "Babe" even means. Because votes like this one just leave me in a perpetual state of .

Pretty much. Although it constantly entertains me when reading these. Beautiful, unattainable women, being mostly rejected by a population that (looking at our other polls) is SHOULD be interested in anything they can get. Just picture Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons criticizing supermodels, mostly. Entertaining and perplexing the smug superiority that shows up in these threads.

Maybe some of these people are so unsuccessful because their standards are a TAD too high?

What would even be the point in having these threads if people voted Thumbs Up in all of them? Of course there's a higher standard in these threads than we might have in our every day lives. We're trying to choose from and rank the hottest of the hot.

I wouldn't turn down any of the women who have been BOW this year (except maybe Cote de Pablo ) in real life, but in these threads, I've voted about 50/50.

Pleasantly pretty but not hot. Terrific voice. Sideways.

I wouldn't kick her out of bed - but on that same note I wouldn't exactly race to jump into bed with her.

Thumbs Sideways.

Really? To each their own. Personally, I'd have damaged the space time continuum racing to jump into bed with her.

Not surprised at grade. She is suppose to be a singer, not a supermodel.

As a general rule, I rarely think blonds (guys or girls) are attractive. I wouldn't even say boring, I just think the blond hair makes people look washed out, washed up and kind of trashy. It's not really that bad if they are actually natural blonds, but, let's be honest, how many of those are there in the entertainment business?

That being said, Carrie is a cutie pie. I give her a thumbs up.
