    Why are the women most beautiful and the men most eligible. Smacks of sexism. It should either both be most eligible or both most beautiful/handsome. Just sayin’

    Because neither is a contest purely of physical attractiveness.

    “Beautiful” is a word that can communicate that fully, but “handsome” is not. No one ever says that someone is “handsome on the inside.”

    So we needed a different term for men, to make it clear that we want our readers to consider the whole package.

    Okay, since Michelle has opened this can of worms, I’ll ask it this way: How come the women in the contest can be married, but the men can’t be?
