Apparently, the world really is fair.

A new study from the University of Maryland has reported that good-looking men find it difficult to get employed in highly-competitive fields.

Researchers found that potential employers turn down physically attractive men because they perceive them as threats, especially in fields where individual successes play an important role, like in sales. Previous research has also found that good-looking men made more money and were perceived as more competent, so it makes sense that bosses feel threatened by the Erwan Heussaffs and Piolo Pascuals of the world.
