When thinking about political leaders, most people usually picture middle-aged men in business suits being awkwardly Photoshopped onto a billboard… or maybe that’s just a Malta thing. Either way, politicians are usually not associated with being stereotypically attractive, unless you’re Justin Trudeau at least.
However, a website literally called hottestheadsofstate.com published a list of the top 198 (yes, actually) most attractive leaders, and no, I will not share how or why I managed to stumble across this site.
Without cheating, can you guess who topped the list?
Not Joseph Muscat. And not Trudeau either. I had you going there didn’t I?
Actually the Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sánchez reigned victorious, with the well-known Canadian leader as the runner up.
The Maltese Prime Minster did feature on the list though, appearing in 40th place, above the President of Bolivia but below the King of Jordan
Which, when you think about it, is very respectable for someone who looks a little bit like a slice of bread in the old photo used
And no shade to him; everyone has those bad pictures that don’t fully capture their beauty (trust me).
