There’s Nothing Sexy About a New Jersey Accent
People are very particular about which accents they like and don't like. Personally, I love certain British accents. However, I have friends that hate them. It's all very subjective. BigSevenTravel.com set out to find the sexiest and, well, least sexiest accents in the country.
It comes as no surprise to find out that a southern accent is dubbed most sexy. More specifically, those who responded to the survey conducted by the website, think that a Texas accent is the absolute sexiest. Where does New Jersey fall on the list? It's not good.
Do you want the good news first or the bad? I'll give you the good news; New Jersey is not in last place. Now onto the bad news, we ended up in 49th place. The website shared the results by saying, "North Jerseyan? Think ‘cawfee’ and dropping the ‘Rs’. South Jerseyan? It’s more like the Philly accent, but not close enough to bring up Jersey’s overall sex appeal."
Yet again North Jersey is bringing us down.
If you live on the west side of South Jersey you have an accent closer to Philly, which is good for you. If you live on the "Jersey Shore" or in central Jersey, sorry there is no mention of you in the ranking.
According to the survey the least sexy accent is the Long Island accent. Big shocker there.
The Philadelphia accent however, falls in the top 10 at #8.
