Someone really beautiful gets loved right off the bat; whereas the rest of us have to really work at it. Amirite?
I've attended many workshops and the really beautiful ALWAYS get A LOT of the attention. It's also usual - being beautiful generally gives them confidence - so they can speak and do have some talent...which only helps their cause... I haven't noticed this at work as much...people there are just generally ALL dismissed, no matter how good-looking they are.
