The growing interest in traveling gave rise not only to travel bloggers but to unusual recommendations for tourists as well. For example, the online magazine Insider Monkey created a ranking of countries where the most handsome men on our planet live. The results of international beauty contests such as Manhunt International, Mister Global, Mister International, and Mr. World were used for the benchmark, and each country got one point for a win in one of these contests. Such categories as “Mr. Congeniality,” “Mr. Internet Popularity,” “Best Physique,” “Best Model,” “Mr. Charming Smile,” and “People’s Choice” were valued at half a point.

Bright Side could not ignore this chart. If the men of these countries won so many titles, it’s logical to think that everyone else there can also boast of their handsomeness, right? Let’s check it out.
