Richard Nixon, 37th president of the US

1

Nixon was a very talented man, but because of his poverty, he couldn’t go to Harvard. His first and only wife, Nixon had to really beg to marry him: he spent 2 years chasing a middle-school teacher, and in the end, she finally said, “yes.”

 

Ernesto Che Guevara, revolutionary

Women love rebels, and the biography of Guevara proves this idea. But Ernesto was not a dreamboat, he spoke disparagingly about his women, he didn’t pay much attention to his own hygiene, he had terrible manners, and he wasn’t very tall.

 

Nikola Tesla, inventor

3

Nikola Tesla was a genius scientist, but he had his peculiarities: he took care of his appearance and he cared about fashion, but he was scared of women, couldn’t work in a team, and had many different phobias. Tesla consciously refused to get married or have any romantic relationships in order to devote all of his time to science.

 

Thomas Edison, inventor

This great American inventor and businessman was married twice and had 6 children.

Charlie Chaplin was officially married 4 times and left 12 heirs. Despite the fact that he was not very tall, the charismatic genius never had trouble with women.

Harry Houdini, illusionist and actor

9

There were rumors about Harry Houdini’s marriage that said the illusionist had never had any arguments with his wife. They got married 2 weeks after they met and they never broke up. The magician wrote love letters to his wife, even when he was in the next room over from her.

 

Ernest Hemingway, writer and journalist

10

The writer was always surrounded by a lot of women, he was married 4 times, but he was not the best husband in the world. His untidiness and problems with alcohol drove his wives crazy.

 

Bob Ross, artist and art promoter

11

Bob Ross gave 20 years of his life to the army and he became famous only after he turned 40. Who would have thought that he was so handsome?

 

Joe Biden, vice-president of the US

When he was young, Biden had problems with stuttering and he spent hours in front of the mirror to deal with that problem. And as a young man, he was a bit shy because of that.
