And here's a pic of "averaged" guys: Composite male images from around the world

I think the average women are more attractive. But maybe it's just my make heteronormativity speaking?

Note: Apparently our tendency to see averaged-out faces as attractive is a thing--an evolutionary biology thing. Koinophilia is the name of the phenomenon and it is explained by the notion that extreme or odd features may represent harmful mutations. But how does that explain the perception of "exotic" looks as beautiful?
