South Africa made it onto the top 10 of a recent survey that ranked the top 50 sexiest nationalities.
Ukrainian took the number one spot in the survey.
The people of Ukraine, the birthplace of actress Mila Kunis, top a ranking of 50 nationalities, with Danish and Filipino coming second and third.
At the other end of the ranking is Irish, in the fiftieth position, and American ranking 45th.
The survey was carried out by Big 7 Travel, which quizzed a sample – 8,500 respondents – of its 1.5 million social media users about the world’s sexiest people.
Those taking part were given no specifications of the term ‘sexy’, so the interpretation of the word was up to them.
Coming fourth in the ranking is Brazil, the home country of supermodels Adriana Lima and Gisele Bündchen.
