NEW YORK, United States, Wednesday May 13, 2015 – A new poll from a travel dating website has rated Bajan women the second sexiest in the world, making Barbados the only Caribbean country to place in the top 10.
Caribbean men failed to secure a place on the Sexiest Nationalities for Men list.
According to 44,873 American men questioned by the MissTravel website, Bajan bombshell Rihanna gave her country the edge in the celebrity-centric poll.

Barbados was narrowly inched out by Armenia, thanks in no small part to Kim Kardashian-West and the rest of the glamourous Kardashian clan.
According to MissTravel: “It’s no surprise that diverse, exotic nationalities like Armenian and Bajan topped the women’s list, voted for by men, as superstars like Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have commanded Instagram attention in the tune of millions of followers.”
In third place, Beyonce flew the flag for the USA, while Colombian women, led by Shakira, came in fourth, and Brits, spearheaded by Rosie Huntington-Whitely, made fifth place.
The women’s list rounded out with Australia, last year’s winners Brazil, the Philippines, Bulgaria and Lebanon.

A similar celebrity-centric pattern was shown on the men’s list, voted for by 66,309 American women.
Irishmen thrashed the competition, partly due to the amount of ladies lusting after Jamie Dornan, the steamy star of 50 Shades of Grey.
Sexy Australians like Chris and Liam Hemsworth and Hugh Jackman may have influenced the second place result, albeit representing a drop from last year’s top spot, while Pakistani men like former One Direction star Zayn Malik came in third.
American, English, and Scottish hunks rounded out the top six spots, while Italians came in seventh.
Tinie Tempah was the likely inspiration for Nigeria bagging the eighth place, while Danish dudes and Spanish studs completed the top 10.
