Southern Drawl Takes it AllWhen you consider the sexiness of Hollywood’s hottest Southerners, like country music star Miranda Lambert and hunky heartthrob Matthew McConaughey, it’s no wonder the South has stolen the GAG Community’s heart.
The Results Are In…
After an astonishing amount of votes rolled in (3314, to be exact), we can safely say that we know where the GAG Community stands in terms of the sexiest North American accents. Southern Belles, continue teasing that hair and charming the pants off everyone you meet – it’s totally working for you.
Southern AccentsThe South really does have it all, doesn’t it? Well, the GAG Community agrees, because both guys and girls say there’s nothing sexier than a Southern accent.
Southern accents swept the competition, as 38% of GAGers (1,273 votes) ranked accents from Southern states as the sexiest.
There’s just something about that Southern drawl that leaves guys and girls wanting more. Yee-haw!
Second place, eh? Known for their delicious maple syrup, yes – but sexy accents? We were just as shocked as you are.
It may be hard to believe, but Canadian accents trailed just behind the Southern accent front runner in the poll. Apparently, 23% of girls and guys (660 votes) just can’t get enough of that Canadian slang.
Northeastern AccentsAhh, the infamous “Boston” accent. We were pretty surprised to see that it didn't sweep the poll, actually.
Not even the extreme popularity of Jersey Shore or the hotness of Mark Wahlberg could save the Northeast from those charming Southerners.
Accounting for only 20% of the votes (693), the Northeast took third – not nearly high enough for bragging rights. Just like the Red Sox, overall, Northeastern accents are disappointing. Better luck next year, NE!
We can’t say we’re surprised to see that Mountain/Western accents were ranked so “un-sexy” by the GAG Community. After all, this region is known for claiming to not having an accent at all, and simply talking “normal” (whatever that means).
With only 10% (361 votes) of girls and guys voting for the Mountain/Western region, this boring non-accent landed itself right in fourth place - just behind those loudmouthed Northeasterners.
Northern AccentsComing in dead last – those poor, poor Northern accents. Face it, Northerners, you’re the go-to for beer and cheese, not sex. Maybe the lack of sex appeal in the North has something to do with the ridiculously cold weather, but we’re betting it has EVERYTHING to do with the accent itself.
We’re sorry to say that only 9% of votes (327) were cast for Northern accents. Start gearing up now, Northerners, it’s going to be a long and cold winter without someone to light your fire.
