Daily Mail Writer Wants You To Know She Is Much Prettier Than You

This woman wants you to know she is prettier than you

Sometimes, I think it’s possible that we dislike women because they are much more beautiful than us. And sometimes I think we dislike them because they are awful. This is one of the latter times.

Samantha Bick’s article for The Daily Mail begins:

On a recent flight to New York, I was delighted when a stewardess came over and gave me a bottle of champagne.

‘This is from the captain — he wants to welcome you on board and hopes you have a great flight today,’ she explained.

You’re probably thinking ‘what a lovely surprise’. But while it was lovely, it wasn’t a surprise. At least, not for me.

Well, yippee for you. I’ve sat here for five minutes and it is impossible to make a joke about this, because it’s already too many jokes. She should have just ineptly popped that bottle and sprayed it around the cabin, bathing herself in champagne bubbles like Venus rising from the depths.

Another time, as I was walking through London’s Portobello Road market, I was tapped on the shoulder and presented with a beautiful bunch of flowers. Even bar tenders frequently shoo my credit card away when I try to settle my bill.

And whenever I’ve asked what I’ve done to deserve such treatment, the donors of these gifts have always said the same thing: my pleasing appearance and pretty smile made their day.

When did unabashed gloating become journalism? I guess I just don’t understand, because…

You’d think we women would applaud each other for taking pride in our appearances.

I work at mine — I don’t drink or smoke, I work out, even when I don’t feel like it, and very rarely succumb to chocolate. Unfortunately women find nothing more annoying than someone else being the most attractive girl in a room

They more find articles written about being the most attractive woman in the room irritating, actually. That is mostly what bothers people.

Really, read the entire thing here. All I’m getting out of this is that captains on British airlines are incredibly considerate and we should all fly on them and demand champagne immediately.

      Well I hope that is not the pretty smile shes is talking about, that’s more of the “I’m holding back a fart” smile.

      • Cee

        Oh and well of course, Samantha Brick thinks that statement is aaall jealousy and insecurity

      • aliclo

        AHAHAHA I was thinking the same thing!

    • matbo

      Does she not look super awkward in that picture? I’m prettier than she is in that picture and I rarely get anything free. I do however how lots of friends and meet interesting people often who show genuine interest in my personality. And that’s bragworthy.

      • matbo

        have* I have lots of friends. And they all disregard my brainfarts.

    • E

      This is weird. I’d honestly understand her attitude if she were traffic-stopping gorgeous.

      But, she’s not.

      Has anyone informed her of this yet?

      • Ninargh

        I read the Daily Mail article before coming down here to comment and was thinking that the WHOLE time. I’m glad it’s not just me, she had me half convinced I was just jealous of her beauty and being bitchy. But traffic-stoppingly gorgeous she is not.

    • Tania

      I don’t think I’m that pretty, but I still think I’m prettier than she is. She looks angry!

      And the only thing I’ve ever got for free was a daffodil while at work that the person had picked from the daffodils my work had planted.

    • Katrina

      I’m going to refrain from commenting on her looks because to each his/her own, but it seems from these article that she has an ugly personality which would explain her “friends” no longer wanting to be around her. I know plenty of extremely physically attractive people with great personalities and a bounty of friends, looks have nothing to do with wanting to be around someone.

      • Gracie

        I completely agree with you. Not long ago I was definitely not pretty but now I think I look pretty good, I am well groomed and accentuate my best features. But as someone who has been on both sides I have found no discernible difference in how other women treat me. I try to be relaxed and friendly with everyone I meet. And it doesn’t matter whether they are conventionally attractive or not most are nice back. Sure some people aren’t always nice but that’s just them its got nothing to do with how I look. Men do treat me a little differently and I would say it is easier being more attractive. But I think it just goes to show that treat others how you want to be treated does work. No wonder this women’s so called friends do want to be around her if she is this superficial and deluded.

    • Lynna

      I’ll cop to it, I’ve ended friendships with conventionally beautiful girls before. But their looks were never the issue, it was moreso the arrogance that came with it – which this woman seems to have in spades.

      I have no issue with being around beautiful people, most of them are actually pleasant, kind, and wonderful overall which makes me enjoy hanging out with them. It’s the ones who are so vested in their looks, and what advantages that gives them, that become ego driven pains in the ass. Looking in the mirror shouldn’t be a hobby, at least try to be an interesting human being and maybe people won’t be so “jealous” of you.

      • BL

        Exactly. I definitely feel I get judged immediately (both positively and negatively) based on nothing but my looks, but there’s really nothing to be done about that and its useless to dwell on the pettiness of others.

        The only thing that matters is cultivating your personality and interests, and if you’re a geniunely interesting and engaging person, that will outshine (yet, enhance) anything else.

      “Even bar tenders frequently shoo my credit card away when I try to settle my bill. … I work at mine — I don’t drink or smoke..”

      Do you drink or don’t you? If you don’t drink, I can see why bartenders are shooing your card away. “You didn’t buy anything! Go away! Stop offering me money to tell you how pretty you are!”

      • Cee

        Lol, I did not notice that! Kudos!

      • Lauren

        I’m glad I wasn’t the only one to notice this!

    • Anne

      You mean this WASN’T an April fools thing?? Wow. No, really. Wow.

    • Marissa

      That article made my day! It was hilariously entertaining.

      I’m going to believe that one of her “jealous,” less attractive, female coworkers convinced her to write this article and include numerous photos of herself. The 4,000 + comments, almost all of which are critical of her appearance and personality, should maybe knock her down a peg or too. Those sneaky ugly coworkers!

    • Maggie

      I know commenters are going to hate me for this, but once you look past her self-congratulatory attitude (and I agree with previous commenters that she isn’t that pretty), Samantha does have a point.

      Women who are good-looking are often judged harshly, specifically by other women. I’ve been on both sides of it: automatically disliking another woman who I feel is better looking than me, and receiving the cold shoulder from a lot of women who see a tall blonde coming and think I’m there to steal their boyfriend, or make some other snap judgement without getting to know me. I’m not saying that I’m some incredibly beautiful super model, but I do think I’m good-looking and I know that there are girls out there who judge me based solely on how I look.

      I take pride in my appearance, but after yet another nasty up-and-down look by some random girl, the compliments don’t feel so great anymore. I don’t agree that beauty should warrant special treatment, but nobody deserves to be treated unfairly because of their appearance. I think under her layers of narcissism and self-promotion, that is what Samantha was trying to say.

      • Cee

        Oh the cruelty of being born tall and blonde! Are you secretly Samantha? Or a “bullied for being hot and tall” model?

      • Maggie

        Thank you for proving my point.

      • Cee

        What point? I am not afraid nor do I hate on hot women. As a lesbian, I LOVE hot women. As a matter of fact, I am planning a wedding with a tall, blonde woman, myself. So my fear of you stealing my..uh boyfriend or me giving a beautiful girl the cold shoulder is out of the question. If anything, the pretty girls, the merrier.

        But this “woe my hotness…nobody likes me” shit, is a turn off. It is not your looks that make you unlikeable. It is the attitude you have that women are jealous of you and that they are all afraid you are stealing their boyfriends that probably make you someone no girl wants to talk to.

      • Maggie

        I don’t walk around expecting people to not like me, nor do I think anyone is jealous of me. I’m a firm believer that everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt, but the women I’m talking about are those who don’t. The point I was trying to make is that a lot of women do make snap judgements about someone they perceive as “better looking” than them and treat them as a threat rather than giving them the benefit of the doubt. I’ve done it myself, as I’m sure the vast majority of us have. I wasn’t trying to make anyone pity me for being, in my opinion, good-looking; I was simply trying to say that there is some validity to what Samantha was writing about.

      • BL

        Maggie, I get what you’re saying and I think you make a valid point. There are definitely negatives… What I call #prettygirlproblems, but similiar to #firstworldproblems in their “severity.”

    • Pix

      Ok. For the record, anyone who disagrees with anything I have to say from here on out is just jealous of me. Just so you all know. I will not bother to listen to you or have a reasonable conversation with you. I will just know you’re a useless jealous person.

      …What? That’s the way it works, right?

    • Lo

      based on the picture with this article, she seems to be ugly on the inside and hardly pretty on the outside. if her article was about how all of those things happen to her because she is confident, then i would say good for her, because confidence can be beautiful and attractive to many.

      but if she’s just talking about her looks, then she better take another look in the mirror. also i ask, does she wear low-cut tops? does this contribute to the gifting (half kidding but dressing like a sloot can sometimes cause similar reactions from strangers/ppl in the service industry).

    • francie

      wtf im prettier than that dumbass (looking at her most women are) and i rarely get free stuff! she is a great fictional writer. HA!

    • Megan

      she’s not cute. she’s delusional.

    • pompeyblonde

      Amazing! seriously, honestly, I’m way hotter than her,(Im sure you are too!) blonde, better hair much better legs!haha!!! and I have never had a problem with other women, men yes, but I do think on the whole its an advantage I have observed Ive been treated more kindly than others at times, HOWEVER, I pride myself on being a nice person, I work as a therapist and have never traded on my appearance, However, now I’m 46 I’m wondering if I should have exploited it more. Shame on me for being a bit deep and wanting to be liked for my real self!
      BTW as a therapist….. this woman is a narcissist and yeah she is deluded!

    • Cassie


      HA HA


      *wipes tears from eyes*

      That’s a pretty good one!

    • Emilia

      Written by someone who has published articles on this site about how she doesn’t have to wear a bra (congrats on the perky tits) and can easily skip makeup if she feels like it (congrats on the perfect skin). Frankly, it seems like you are bragging, fairly frequently, about your own genetic gifts. It’s great for you, but it seems like kind of a dick move from someone without them.

      • swats

        I laughed really hard while reading this. Thank you.

    • Benita

      Are standards that low in Europe? She wouldn’t rate a second glance in NYC much less get free drinks from bartenders even though she doesn’t drink.

    • Amy

      I’d normally never comment on another woman’s appearance but she’s put it out there so I feel comfortable saying that I don’t find her even a little bit attractive. That being said, maybe this is an advertisement for how far huge amounts of self-confidence will get you?

      If what she’s saying about the treatment she receives is true maybe it’s a reflection of the fact that other people really respond to those who are confident about themselves and are unselfconscious in their interactions with other people.

      She may be an awful human being and completely narcissistic but the lesson might be that believing you’re the hottest thing going and acting like it will get you a good response from others whether you are or not. Just don’t write an article about how much better you are than everyone else because obviously that just makes you a complete douchebag.

    • required

      This article reminds me of the “I heart haters” bumper stickers. If you are brave enough to point out how and why the person is (a) deluded (b) a d0uchebag (c) all of the above, then you are “a hater”. Your only real choice is to agree with her or (hopefully her worst nightmare) pretend she doesn’t exist and give her a mental middle finger on your way past. It’s like ignorance – it only bothers those who don’t have it!

    • MM

      This woman is appalling. How can you regularly get free wine and not have the decency to drink?

    • ScienceGeek

      I’m convinced that Daily Mail article is either an April’s fool joke that’s gotten out of control, or blatant troll-bait.

      The only thing I’m wondering is if Brick is in on it, or if the editors are just using her to get hit points. She’s got another article on the same site about how great it is that her French husband has told her he’ll divorce her if she gains weight. Including a picture of her with said husband and his rather prominent gut. I’m almost hoping that she is troll-baiting, because the alternative (that she genuinely doesn’t recognise how f*cked up her statements are) is just too sad.

    • Em

      I hoped this was a joke, but no such luck. What’s almost worse is her self-righteous follow-up piece…. And am I the only one who’s suitably terrified by her veiled, pseudo death-threat?

      She claims that “as the storm brewed . . . well, I’ve had to hide the worst of it from [my husband]; the tame few [comments] I’ve read out have riled him enough to want to take his own form of action.” Just above this, there’s a ridiculous photograph of her posing beside her husband, who’s dressed in camo and holding a huge rifle.

      Um, what the hell? Have we progressed from “if you disagree with me in any way, you’re just proving that I really am super pretty and you’re a jealous hag” to “disagree with me and my husband will hunt you down and kill you???”

    • Rachel

      Yeahhh…um, I really don’t find this woman all that attractive. And I’m the kind of woman who will readily admit when a woman is beautiful. I appreciate beautiful women.

      And echoing many others comments here, I’m also not one to bash a woman’s physical appearance; but since she brought it up, I’m giving my opinion. If this is a joke, and this woman is brilliant and lovely and wonderful, then this would make her much more beautiful.

      But she ain’t no Megan Fox or Amanda Seyfried.

    • Emma

      I agree with many of the other comments. I do have to say that she has pretty eyes, but her teeth disturb me, as does her nose. She is somewhat thin, but not tall. My sister is 5’11″, so i think i know what i am talking about. She looks quite average to me, and i am usually quite generous when giving people complements. Also, she doesn’t seem to have a very golden personality- a thing that i look at the most in people. She seems to be extremely self-absorbed and jumps to conclusions about people. I also believe that she was exaggerating in her article. She says that she doesn’t drink, and yet she goes to a bar. Either she was lying about not drinking, or she was lying about a bartender shooing her credit card. I think that it is very important for people to be confident with their looks, but she has taken it too far. She is rubbing her “beauty” in people’s faces, and even if you’re very attractive, you shouldn’t do that. I am always very careful about choosing friends that aren’t egotistical. I’m in middle school, so i know a lot of people with a large ego. Her parents should’ve complimented her more on good actions, not just looks, and now she has become very narcissistic and kinda mean, too.
