I really din't think beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that yes there are more people more beautiful than others. For instance: Who here finds Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Adriana Lima, Megan Fox, Kim Kardashian or any Miss Universe ugly?
The same applies to men: I am sure Brad Pitt, Baptiste Giabiconi, Sean O Pry and etc are good looking fellows, more than me I got to admit.
I think there is such a thing as universa beauty, that are factors that make some people more attractive than others and that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" it is just a lie told to people with low self esteem.
If you think the saying is wrong, please tell me who here would pick a guy who is short over a tall guy all the rest being the same.

It is scientifically proven, and technically, mathematically proven, that there is a "universal beauty" of some sort. BUT you have to realize that most people don't look like that. Additionally, that line is in regards to the details. Superficial (a little fat, no fat, single eyelid, double eyelid, tall, short, long hair, short hair) and sub-ficial (smart, average, sweet, honest, quiet and thoughtful, bold and brazen). That's what the phrase means. Yes, we say it to people with low self-esteem. But only because we want them to understand they have good points and are worthy of being loved. And we say it to those who have average self-esteem, and to those who have maybe too much self-esteem. That is the truth.2
