I vote we change the page-image to this because, well, it's the world's ridiculously average face and not just that of the USA.

That seems like a suggestion for Image Picking.

Er.... yes? I don't know how that works, but that sounds about right. ^_^

Is this trope entirely about average guys in fiction can still get chicks? Because 3/4 of the description is devoted towards that.

That picture is creepy.

How so? If anything, it's creepy in how nondescript the guy is. :/

It's creepy because his face sits right in the middle of the Uncanny Valley. Maybe because his skin looks like wax or maybe because he's too perfectly average.

But whatever the reason, it's a good picture. Nobody is that ridiculously average, so you can tell right away that something's off.

I am curious about where the picture is from.

He's staring into my soul with those average eyes...

AGH! Make it go away!

I'm curious about where the guys is 'average' for. I'm thinking it has to be Europe or the 'white' Commonwealth, on account of the skin and eyes.

^Hm no, if anything, average for the Western world (well, Europe and the Americas). I'm from a south american country and every day I walk by plenty of people to whom this guy resembles a little. Hell, he looks a little bit like me too.
