When it comes to foreign accents, most people usually consider "standards" like the British accent, the Australian accent and the Spanish accent to be the sexiest of them all.
But apparently, the Canadian accent, which not many people would initially consider as sexy, is also considered to be a sexy accent. According to a new poll by Ranker, the Canadian accent is among the top 20 sexiest accents in the world, landing in 10th place. However, it could move up or down in the list at any time, as votes are continously being tallied. By the way, we're assuming that by "Canadian accent" they mean the heavy one that features a lot of "ehs" and "aboots" in everyday speech... Kinda like this one:
This year, the Irish accent takes the top spot, surpassing the French accent which was the previous #1. In close second is the Spanish accent, followed by the Australian accent in third. In Canada's defence, these are tough ones to beat.
But we should be flattered that we're included in the ranking at all! Here are the top 20 sexiest accents in the world right now:
- Scandinavian (Finland, Norway, Denmark)
- Portugese (Brazilian)
- English (Canadian)
- Central Latin
- Spangish (blend)
- Southern English
- Texan English
- South American
