DENVER -- We all know the pretty girls in school get all the attention, but did you know they also get better grades?

According to a new study by researchers at the Metropolitan State University of Denver, girls who were judged as less attractive earned lower grades than their pretty peers.

Researchers came to that conclusion after they compared academic records with a student's photo ID. But let’s not forget, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the beholder may sometimes be blinded by the beauty.

Case in point: when students took online courses, those "smarts" flew out the window. Maybe all those A's in class were given by male professors?

But being ridiculously good looking won't just get you good grades, it'll also get you a better paying job and the occasional freebie at Starbucks!

So, there you have it kids, a sad reality, guess this story is one that isn't so pretty. #beautyoverbrains?
