I chose tall. The reason being: being tall says nothing about a person. It has nothing to do with a person's merit. You have no control over whether or not you're tall.
A musician or painter may have some natural talent, and I think that's pretty cool, but these people also tend to put a lot of hard work and practice into their talent.
Though I don't really care whether a guy is ripped or not, getting ripped doesn't simply happen. These guys put a lot of hard work, time, and dedication into their body.
I also think being rich is overrated, but I didn't choose it because, though many people are rich simply because they were born rich, there are at least some guys who are rich because they put the time and effort into getting a good education, working hard, etc. So there's at least some potential that a person is rich due to other things that I find attractive (though, many guys that aren't rich have these qualities too).
So basically, attributes that a person has done nothing to earn and say nothing about that person's personality or abilities (whether it's being born with the genes that will make you tall, or being born into a rich family) are overrated compared to attributes that a person has earned (because I think it does say something about the person's personality or abilities).7
