Someone want to dispute this?

Shocking results from TV Guide's You Sexy Thing contest: Keira Knightley vs. Kristanna Loken. I've been a fan of Kristanna since Mortal Kombat: Conquest.

Another counterexample to the conventional wisdom that blondes are more popular than brunettes.

but kristanna looks so much cleaner....

Sorry, Razib, you are on your own. I've got a thing for tall skinny brunettes.

Razib, perhaps your dark complexion is nudging you to capture the greater heterozygous advantage in Kristanna.

Be rational, Keira is objectively more attractive ;) Genes impel, they do not compel.

Why are some of you interpreting this poll as a blonde vs. brunette contest? First of all, the voters were shown 5 pictures of each woman. In Keira's pictures, she appears as a blonde, red-head, and a dark brunette. Fans of Keira are probably more familiar with the lighter-haired version, as appears in the movies Bend it Like Beckham and Pirates of the Caribbean.

As for me, I can't cast my vote without knowing what their butts look like.
