I always watch the BBC and seriously, I have noticed that British men AND women, do tend to neglect their looks. I don't know if it is selective programming? Alot of the shows (reality & fiction) people in their 20s & 30s look much older,overweight & seem to have poor hygiene. I always thought it was just sterotypes & would have to see for myself to make a final judgement. On the positive side of things, I find British people in general to be a fun loving bunch.
