Why is Perth the unofficial breeding ground for really, really ridiculously good looking people?

They may joke about living in the Wild West and wonder why so few East Coasties aren't adventurous enough to fly across the country to visit, but it's been said time and time again that Perth seems to breed to best looking people in Australia.
