Supermodel Bar Refaeli was recently voted the hottest woman in the world by Maxim magazine readers, but she can't get a date. Isn't this always the way? In fact, the blonde stunner told Conan O'Brien that guys don't even so much as glance at her. They look right through her like she's thin air. Apparently all of the people voting her hottest babe in the world were female. Says Bar, somewhat dubiously:
Let’s put it out there, no one hits on me. I don’t get hit on by guys. No one flirts with me.
Okay, there's something strange going on here. Either Bar hangs out with far too many gay men, or she is completely oblivious to flirtation (unlikely since she thought a TSA agent was hitting on her), or ... this could be true. Hmm.
Here are some reasons that men may not hit on the delectable Bar:
Odds are long. Let's face it, men are kind of like Vegas gamblers. They run down the odds of being successful with a girl (i.e., bringing her home or getting her number) and the odds of getting Bar's number -- let alone getting her in bed -- are probably pretty slim. A guy is going to go for the better odds -- the not-the-hottest-woman-in-the-world, who is on the other side of the room.
Too much work. The guys are probably thinking they're going to have to do some kind of circus act to get Bar's attention. Or they're going to need to buy her five dozen roses, a bottle of Dom Perignon, and maybe whisk her away for an all expense paid vacation to Venice. And then, when they're out 50 grand, she'll smile sweetly and say, "I really do love you ... as a friend."
Too much competition. Even if Bar does give them the time of day, the guys probably think there's yet another dude, one with more money, who is more handsome, and more famous (cough Leo DiCaprio cough), who could show up at any moment and make all that effort for naught.
Now, I'm not saying this is all true of Bar. For all I know, she just loves a regular Joe, maybe a chronically-underemployed guy with a paunch and a taste for Pabst. I have no idea. Maybe she is the single most low-key chick ever, and the biggest loser on the planet could snag a date with her, no prob.
I'm just telling you what the guys are probably thinking. But I'm not a guy, so maybe they'll have something to say about it.
Guys, would you hit on Bar?
