I think we all associate, on one level or another, with the people that we watch on television, movies and YouTube. Since YouTube personalities are very accessible, we’re going to analyze them in a way that breaks down what makes them (or not) attractive. Then, we’re going to go a step further and suggest steps they could take to make themselves more attractive.
First, I’d like to pay a little respect to the YouTubers because they put their heart and souls on the line every day. It takes a lot of guts be in front of a camera of millions on a daily basis and they should know that this article is not meant to bash them in any way possible, but rather to use them as models for people who are in a similar place in their life. It is also important to note that all observations are based solely on the videos that they produce and this may or may not reflect their “real life” personality.
First, we have Philip Defranco aka SxEPhil who is one of the most popular comedians on YouTube. He’s funny, ambitious and part of his success is that he really figured out how to capture people’s attention. Through the use of 3-4 minute clips discussing his thoughts on popular news.
So what makes SxEphil attractive?
Well, first and foremost… he’s now famous because of his YouTube videos. I really can’t imagine him going anywhere without having people recognize him. Fame is massive social proof, and if everyone knows your name, then you must be important. But what if he didn’t have any fame or social proof. What if YouTube didn’t exist and you had never heard of him before, then what?
Without any fame
That’s ok, because he’d still be fine.
Through his videos, you can tell that Philip is both funny and witty. His sense of humor and quick mind is a very attractive trait and women are sure to have a fun time around him. Who doesn’t want to be around a guy that makes them laugh all the time?
Even without the humor, his witty comments demonstrate that he’s both smart and relatively cultured. His point of views on world events are sane and he proves that he has a backbone to take a stance on controversial events. He’s even smart enough not to talk about things that he claims not to know much about. Good job!
Last, but certainly not least, Philip has a lot of ambition and drive. His passion really shines in his videos and the fact that he’s undertaking many projects at once shows that he’s not only ambitious, but determined to be successful. This might be one of the most attractive traits that he has in the eyes of women. They know he’s a good investment and holding on to him would be a good thing. We talk a lot about this in what attracts women.
Finally, if you’ve been following his recent adventures, you’ll know that Philip Defranco is slightly overweight. Although physically this will be a deterrent (we’ll get to this later), he’s actively working out and moving towards his goal to lose weight. This is more important than anything else because, as I always say: It is not where you are but rather where you are headed that’s important.
Now the bad:
Let’s start off with the more obvious less attractive traits. Philip is slightly overweight and although this doesn’t really show on most of his videos because he only shows his face.
When you see his entire body on his other channels, you’re a little taken back by lack of physical shape. There’s nothing wrong with girls wanting a man to be in shape, and this is going to be the first thing they notice when they meet him. However, if he continues on his path to weight loss, he’s going to score very high in the physical appearance domain.
One of the things that women are going to rapidly notice with Philip is that he has a seemingly huge ego. You can’t really blame him, his popularity certainly doesn’t help ground him, but ultimately this might be his biggest downfall. His ego shows when he speaks about other people, especially about women and when he talks about money. It isn’t uncommon to hear Philip talk about how he helps out his family financially and about how he has to be a lot of income tax.
Sure it’s attractive to help others out (especially family) and make a lot of money, but it’s NOT attractive to brag about it. See how to impress girls for more on this.
People brag when they are seeking validation and it usually just means that are you still immature. Although I don’t know him personally, you get the impression that Philip could be a real asshole at times, especially when he doesn’t get what he wants.
The key element that Philip is missing in order to be truely all around attractive is maturity. Being just a little more humble would go a long way. Women would think: “Not only is he funny, witty, working out regularly, wealthy but he’s ALSO humble about it?”.
Now THAT’s a winning combination
So how do you become more mature?
Well, the easiest way to do so would be to hang out with more mature men. If your days are spent with immature people, then that’s what you’ll become. Instead, having a few good role models and mentors in your life goes a long way and unfortunately, I don’t believe Philip has any.
What lies ahead for Philip?
If he continues on his current path, I have no doubt he’ll be very successful in his ventures in and outside YouTube. Will he continue on his weight loss journey? I sincerely hope he does, for himself.
What about the ego and the maturity? Which one will win?
I can easily answer this with a little riddle: “If there are are two wolves, one good wolf and one evil one. They are both equal and fight each other every day. After 2 years, which one will eventually win?
The answer is, the one that you feed will win.”
