Final Word: Don't worry, guys, women don't want to date the hot mugshot guy

Ah, the mugshot. We love to look at pictures of people taken at their worst moment.

Whether its someone famous like Nick Nolte or the guy who looks like he might have just climbed out from under a truck, the photos are often hilarious.

This mugshot from Stockton, Calif., got so many likes that it got the attention of a local TV station. More than 10,000 women "liked" the photo and more than 2,400 women commented on the photo of 30-year-old Jeremy Meeks.

He was arrested on felony weapons charges, but that didn't stop comments like, "OMG, come to mama" and "He can kidnap me any"

It's no different from when a beautiful woman gets her mugshot "liked" but I think the difference is what these women would ACTUALLY do with Mr. Meeks.

We think he's hot, sure. But we don't want to DATE him. We'd rather date the guy who has a job and no felony record, even if he's just average-looking.

The bad guy is pure fantasy.

You guys, however, DO want to date that hot gal, just as soon as she's out on bail.

You figure she's really probably a nice girl who found herself in a bit of trouble, but with the right guy, she'll be the girl you want to bring home to mom. But she won't. You just don't want to admit it.

Girls, now, we are different. We tend to see the diamond in the rough.

We find that guy who has a great profile, super legs, (or, better yet, a really great mind) and choose him. Then we work on him slowly and deliberately, until he is the guy we want. Ask any woman how their man's wardrobe has changed since the day they met.

I rest my case.

Guys, don't worry. Your woman might think that felon is hot, but we don't want to marry him.

About the Author

Years with the company: Just started with Bonneville, but have worked for and with KTAR AM and FM since 1991.

Career: I always knew my career would be touched by news. I started as a news intern in 1991 and eventually reported news and sports, and anchored newscasts at KTAR when it was an AM, news/talk/sports station. I went to work at the Attorney General's Office in 1995, as a spokesperson for the 300 attorneys there, and for Attorney General Grant Woods. I returned as a part-time host and host of Arizona's Morning News Saturday in 2001.

Education: I escaped Catholic school early when the nuns wanted me to skip the second grade. I found my independent voice at a private grade school in Painesville, Ohio, then called Phillips Elementary. The teachers there encouraged us to ask questions and challenge the status quo. They took us on mind-opening trips and never once treated us like children. I am grateful for those years! I left Ohio in 1988 to attend Arizona State University because I knew I wanted to live in the West. I majored in Journalism and interned at KTAR in the newsroom my senior year.

Family: I am the last of nine children and my parents were undoubtedly looking at retiring when I was born. I was raised early on mostly by my five wonderful sisters. I have so many first cousins that I haven't yet met most of them.

Favorite movie: Caddyshack and anything by John Hughes.

#1 sports team: NL Diamondbacks. AL Cleveland Indians. Gotta love a team whose mascot is named Chief Wahoo.

Outside interests: Working out, cooking, traveling and reading a great book.
