The Sexiest American Accent Is....

posted by Tony Manero -

While a lot of gals go weak in the knees for a man with a foreign accent, have you ever wondered how those overseas feel about American accents? Well, the language learning app Babble has the answer.

The app asked more than 4,000 European hostel staffers (who come across the most American travelers) from 43 countries, to rate seven different regional tones, and you may be shocked to find out which ranks sexiest.

Overall the Deep Southern accent tops the list with 20% of the vote, followed by the New York accent, with 18%. New Yorkers were the top choice of French voters (57%), while folks in Britain and Sweden preferred the Southern California sound, and the Boston accent is a fave of folks in Germany, Spain and the Netherlands.
