They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and if ever you needed proof, then these images are it. The following guys somehow snagged girlfriends who, on the face of it, are so far out of their league that they shouldn’t even be on the same playing field. Still, they give hope to similar average Joes everywhere. Perhaps. When this guy won $181 million on the lottery, he met the woman of his dreams just two days later. The power of love really is amazing.

Meet the U.K.’s Kate Cathcart and Darren Donaghey, who are, according to Metro Radio, the most mismatched couple on Tyneside. In March 2014 Darren was named the station’s “Punching Above Your Weight” winner.

She was beginning to suspect that he’d used a fake picture on his Tinder profile, but then they kind of even each other out in the body size stakes. And they both like frolicking on the beach, so it’s all good.

With a lady friend as hot as his, this dude should really be a whole lot happier. Then again, he is on bag-carrying duty.

It’s a fact that some male fish carry their mates’ fertilized eggs in their kissers until they hatch. Which must be what’s going on here. Maybe.

A series that shows the camera never lies. That first photo was no unfortunate one-off. This pair really don’t look as though they belong with each other.

No one was more grateful than this dude when Cara Delavigne brought sizable eyebrows – or in this guy’s case, eyebrow – back into fashion.

There’s something ever so slightly smug about this guy’s expression, which we can absolutely forgive him for. Hats off, sir.
