Eye Candy?

It started at Wimbledon, the All England Club admitted that to play on Centre Court, you gotta be a hottie! So there was Gisela Dulko (unseeded), Sorana Cirstea (27th), and Maria Kirilenko (unseeded, ranked 59) all playing on Centre Court whereas poor Svetlana Kuznetsova, who won the French Open and Serena Williams had to slug it out on Court 2.

The SMH article also quotes a spokesman from the All England Club, Johnny Perkins, "Good looks are a factor. 'It's not a coincidence that those [on Centre Court] are attractive."

Wimbledon champion, German Michael Stich, hit the nail on the head when he said "That's [sex] is what they sell."

Now we also know that job offers are based on good looks, bugger the experience. Talent2 director, John Banks said physical appearance was still a large part of the hiring process. In some cases, it was the determining factor 90 per cent of the time.

So girls, if you're hankering for that vacancy you know what to wear...

Guess job interviews are designed to weed out the ugly and those of undesirable race.

That people who are better looking get the job has been known for years as bad as that sounds.

I wrote a blog on taller people getting the job. It seems that people who are 6 feet get the job over someone shorter. Go figure.

Hi Bren, not only do taller people get the job, read that they get more pay too :(
