Have you ever wondered how those overseas feel about American accents? Well, the language learning app Babble has the answer.

The app asked more than 4,000 European hostel staffers (who come across the most American travelers) from 43 countries, to rate seven different regional tones, and you may be shocked to find out which ranks  sexiest.

Overall the Deep Southern accent tops the list with 20% of the vote, followed by the New York accent, with 18%. New Yorkers were the top choice of French voters (57%), while folks in Britain and Sweden  preferred the Southern California sound, and the Boston accent is a fave of folks in Germany, Spain and the Netherlands. 

Why is Baltimore not on this list???
