Does majority rule in this case?

No. I disagree and I will explain why. :)
There are many factors that may create a biased poll. So, did you choose random people to vote or are they friends with that person? Are they of the same ethnicity/race or are they chosen randomly from different backgrounds? I could give you an easy answer, but I am trying to analyze the situation. In order to obtain a semi-accurate result, you must choose people of completely different backgrounds/religion/ethnicity and so on because you might never know the hidden agenda each one holds against that person.
Even if she is gorgeous, those people may vote she is ugly just because they don't like her for example or she isn't in their *league* or she is from a different ethnicity and they are biased to their own ethnic group. People DO carry hidden agenda.
So, let's say you choose those people at random to create an unbiased voting and they still think she is ugly. I believe that people shouldn't be expected to meet others' standards. The media is affecting people's judgements as well. Also, they might vote "beautiful" to better that person's self-esteem. I don't think anyone should seek people's approval of their look, values, personality, etc...anyone knows his/her points of weakness and points of strength. One should work on them without seeking approval.
I have a mirror and I have eyes to look myself at it. I am the only unbiased person that may judge my appearance, personality, strengths, flaws, etc...even my parents could be biased. :)
