Okay, I know this is kind of stupid, but which character on the Facts of Life did you find most attractive? To remind you there was:



Jo: upper left
Blair: upper right
Tootie: lower left
Natalie: lower right

I've never seen the show but have to say Tootie looks rather sexy.

Jo looks like Val Kilmer in drag.

It seems to be socially acceptable to say what race preference you have when it comes to sexual attraction, so I will say that White Women generally get most of my attention. But in this case, those three women don't seem to do it for me and I am voting for Tootie!

edit: this would have to be another thread, maybe I'll do that, but I could see Natalie making the best wife; my experiences in life have pretty much taught me that a guy's idealized lover may not make the best partner for marriage. So there is a vote on the side for Natalie, who actually by no means do I find unattractive. BTW I have never seen the show.

That dilemma more clearly seen in the Ginger or Maryann question. I used the word "attracted," which I think speaks to an initial response, rather than a careful analysis of who would make the best wife. In the case of Maryann, her innocent nature and cheerfully going about domestic chores, things generally associated with a good wife, make her seem attractive.

In the case of the Facts of Life, I found Tootie the prettiest, but Jo to have the most interesting personality.

I never really got into the show. Saw a couple episodes when it originally ran, but otherwise ignored it.



I've never dated a black woman. Flirted, yes, bet never dated. Of those four, I also think Tootie is the one I'd be most likely to flirt with.

So I voted for Tootie. Does that answer the question?

Then again, based solely on the photo, Jo seems too butch, Blair seems too bitch, and Natalie seems too much like an older sister. Tootie seems the most sexy of the bunch.

I feel I also have to speak out on behalf of Natalie.

Yes, she's a bit more full figured than the other girls, but I always thought she had the best sense of humor, which to me is attractive.

But ok, for first glance physical attractiveness I guess it's Blair for me.

I always liked Jo the best. Blair just looks too high-maintence form the get-go. Even watching the show (OK< I admit I watched it in the day), Blair was a more snobbish charachter. Jo was way more world-wise.

Since this site is about gambling after all, here is how I see them:


Blair: Casino-Wynn or Venitian. Game: Roulette

Jo: Casino-Stardust (before it closed) or Flamingo Game: Poker Room after she bets at the sportsbook

Tootie: Casino-Caesars Palace Game: Blackjack

Natalie: Casino-Harrah's Game: Casino War

Hmmmm.... I think I need to change my vote!

Nailed it! LOL!

Except maybe Natalie. She seems like more of a slots gal to me. Kitty Glitter I'm thinking.
