Kaicyre Palmers
Kaicyre Palmers has caught international attention after her photos went viral Instagram

New York University nurse Kaicyre Palmers has been sending pulses racing after winning the title of the "World's Sexiest Nurse." The health worker spiked attention earlier in September after snaps of her donning her scrubs began making the rounds online. As a result of her jaw-dropping beauty, she has attracted over 190,000 followers on Instagram.

But why are we so shocked to see gorgeous people in normal jobs?

"There is still a form of prejudice about beautiful people and tests prove that people will still assume they have nicer personalities, although they can suffer in terms of top jobs! In politics for instance someone too good looking can still be viewed as less intellectual and capable," psychologist Judi James tells IBTimes UK.

"There are still perceptual links between looks and vanity or Narcissism so seeing someone doing a job that requires neither can wrongly confuse people!"

Thanks to a wonderful thing called the internet we already have a gorgeous Brazilian street sweeper and McDonald's "goddess" cashier. Let's not forget sexy convict Jeremy Meeks.

IBTimes UK takes a look at other beautiful people doing everyday jobs.
