Minnesotans Have the Least Sexy Accents in the Country
What's your favorite accent? British? Australian? European? I just LOVE accents in general. I think we have the most mild accent when it comes to the United States. Perhaps I'm biased, but I don't hear it ya know? According to the Europeans though, we have the least sexy accent in the country. Ouch!
When you think about the best accents coming from the US, you have to agree with what Europeans think - deep south y'all! Abso-freaking-lutely! The Reese Witherspoon "Sweet Home Alabama" is too adorable NOT to love. The New Yorker accent closely follows on the list. Sorry, I don't agree. According to the study, New York had the "sexiest regional accent," and Bostonians sounded the most "intelligent." The Boston accent came in number 3.
Rounding out the top 7 was Southern Californian, Texan, Midwestern and finally, Minnesotan! We had a measly 5% of votes for the sexiest accent in the United States. The study was done by a Global language-learning app called Babbel. You can read more here.
