It's been just over a year since Brit writer Samantha Brick, 42, created a storm with a Daily Mail article that claimed women were threatened by her good looks, and there's now a new contender for the most "Zoolander-like" person in the world, 21-year-old American Dana Adiva.

The aspiring wrestler from Illinois has made waves after her appearance on MTV's True Life show, in which she claims her natural beauty has caused her heartbreak, and even led to her having to quit school due to bullying from jealous teen girls. 

"People will stare at me no matter what," the Illinois native said to her sister during the show, "It's the most irritating thing in the world." 

"I get so much attention from all the guys, but I didn't get along with any of the girls. They were all extremely jealous of me... I would have hate mail, it got so bad, to the point that I just stopped going to school." 

Research does show that 'attractive' people can be harmfully objectified, but then being perceived as good looking has also been proven to be a huge career and money boost.

Adiva does acknowledge that her looks aren't all burden (and that school didn't really matter anyway), "I get anything I want and I get treated like a princess," she boasted, "I don't have to be smart, because I have my looks." Hmm...

Dana says that in the past she tried to "hide her beauty" by wearing glasses and dyeing her hair dark (hold on, isn't that a little insulting to all the lovely glasses-wearing brunettes out there?), but says that she has now decided to "embrace it", and is considering breast implants. 

In the words of Derek Zoolander, "did you ever think that maybe there's more to life than being really, really, really ridiculously good looking?" Nope? OK then, as you were.
