* In one episode of ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'', Rebecca stays at home with depression and watches a French film, where a French woman says "I'm so depressed." Because the French woman looks so much sexier being depression than Rebecca does, she imagines singing the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1DCoGCVUxY "Sexy French Depression,"]] which both embraces this trope and deconstructs it, showing that even if she were French, depression is ''not'' sexy.

* Even happens on French TV. Creator/{{TF1}}'s long-running popular sitcom ''Les Filles d'à Côté'' ran on this trope, dealing with the lives of two sets of neighbours and the gym/health club they visited. Both the "girls next door" and their male neighbours are walking paradigms of 1990's French chic, as are the troop of extras in the gym. Even the slobby Marc is above-average good looking.

* Played the other way around in ''À nous les petites anglaises'', in which several French schoolboys become infatuated with the local girls while on a foreign exchange to England.

* Played the other way around in ''À nous les petites anglaises'', in which several French schoolboys become infatuated with the local girls while on a foreign exchange to England. It's quite realistic since at the time English girls and women were considered more "liberated" than their French counterparts ( it had to to mainly with better access to contraception)

* One ''ThirdRockFromTheSun'' episode had the family trying to decide what ethnicity to be. Dick asked Mary, an anthropoligist, what the best ethnic group was. She claimed it was all subjective, but when he asked which ethnicity was sexiest, she immediately responded, "Italians. Smokey, swarthy, gotta have 'em."
* There's an episode of ''BoyMeetsWorld'' where Shawn finds out this nerdy girl is Swiss (yet he invariably refers to her as Swedish) and [[BeautifulAllAlong makes her popular]] by playing up the stereotype for FetishFuel.

* Luc Laurent from ''BrothersAndSisters'', who Sarah meets on a wine buying trip in France and has "sexy French dude" played so highly that's clearly done for laughs.
* In one episode of ''{{Coupling}}'', Susan is chatted up by someone who assumes she is French and is attracted for this reason alone. Susan also admits to liking Australians. Later in the episode, Jeff responds similarly to the idea of a client being French.
* One episode of ''TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' was full of lines about how French girls are promiscuous.
* In ''HarpersIsland'', Sully and Cal are both convinced that Chloe only likes Cal because of his British accent.
* In WakingTheDead Stella Goodman is half-French half-English and often seen as the sexiest member of the team.
