French men - aren't they shallow?

Yet another French survey, this time for FHM on the opinions of French men on sundry famous (many of who are not on Wiki anglais, so none too famous in these parts) French women. I like to think I am reasonably plugged in on these things, but only about a third of the 75 names registered. Any one ever heard of Diam's (sic) or Jenifer (sic)? Mind you, even the best known one for those polled - Mimie Mathy, who appears to be a dwarf comic actress - only scored 97% name recognition. She is equalled by France's Eric Morley, Geneviève de Fontenay. She backed Royal in 2007 but outdoes her for name recognition by one percentage point. Snigger.


I will spare everyone the actresses /models / whatevers and just deal with politicians and the like:

First, my friend and yours, Ségolène Royal:

  • Least honest - 1
  • Coldest - 2
  • Cruellest - 3
  • Most powerful - 3
  • Biggest spender - 4
  • Most intelligent - 4

(Brief pause while I hold my head in my hands and rock gently)

Sego was rated the world's sixth sexiest woman in an FHM France readers' poll in 2006, by the way.

Christine Lagarde (France's Alistair Darling)

  • Meanest - 2
  • Least honest - 3
  • Most serious - 3
  • Coldest - 5
  • Cruellest - 5
  • Most intelligent - 6 (this lady has a Masters, used to chair Baker & Mackenzie and folk think she is dimmer than Ségo? Saints preserve us)

Rachida Dati (France's Jack Straw)

  • Cruellest - 1
  • Coldest - 1
  • Least honest - 2
  • Biggest spender - 2
  • Best dressed - 4
  • Most chic - 4 (Let them hate so long as they put me in Paris Match?)
Elsewhere, former newsreader Christine Ockrent is rated France's most intelligent woman, kidnap victim Ingrid Betancourt the most courageous, the dwarf actress is the most honest and Carla Bruni the best dressed and most chic. The winner for the most sought mobile number and as a companion on a desert island (nice euphemisms, eh?) is Clara Morgane, a retired porn star.

Geoff - thanks for that. How utterly surreal, if a great deal less expensive than the nonsense we have forthcoming...
