Beautiful people arguably have an easier life — they’re happier, healthier, and have more friends. A common belief is that good-looking people also earn more money. But a new study turns this theory on its head. Researchers have found that people who are “very unattractive” may be the biggest earners. So your looks might not let you down, at least when it comes to money.

It’s no secret that life can be easier for beautiful people. Studies have shown being good-looking has benefits for your health, intelligence, and helps with making friends.
