A new study shows the most attractive Bachelors in franchise history ranked.
The study conducted by online casino expert’s Online-Gambling.com analyzed each Bachelor from every season by using the Golden Ratio theory to find out how attractive each Bachelor is. The Ancient Greek theory considers the width and height dimensions of the face to determine what is to be the “perfect” structure and, therefore, the most attractive. The score is calculated using the popular beauty measuring app Golden Ratio Face. Each Bachelors portrait was processed by the app and given a score out of 10, with the higher the score meaning, the more attractive they are.
Coming in at number one for the most attractive Bachelor of all time is Brad Womack scoring an 8.54. Womack, an entrepreneur from Livingston, Texas, is the only contestant to be the Bachelor twice after rejecting both finalists in season 11. He then returned in season 15 and proposed to Emily Maynard; however, their breakup followed in June 2011.
