KPCC: 16% of The Hill’s 50 Most Beautiful People are Californian

Yes, we are not only hot – we export our hotness, apparently, to one of the ugliest towns in America – DC. The Hill’s annual 50 Most Beautiful People List this year was heavy on California babes according to KPCC’s Kitty Felde.

Also on the list: 27-year-old San Dimas native Bret Manley. He advises Republican Congressman Gary Miller of Diamond Bar on financial services issues. Manley says he was nominated before. “But they didn’t pick me. So I was like all right, fine. Go through this whole song and dance again, not get picked, and then you know, life goes on.”

He sounds a bit embarrassed or ambivalent about all of the attention. “I’m going to have fun with it for a day,” he says. “Or whatever. And then everybody’ll forget about it and I’ll go back to life as usual.”

Manley is also listed in “The Hill” profile as single. So far, he hasn’t gotten any phone calls from interested parties. “No. That would be creepy, I think. Slightly.”
