HeadsetHotties.com is a website that features photos from various customer service websites of good looking women wearing headsets, ready to help people with their woes.
Site creator Scott Carver says headset hotties are the biggest web design cliche because in reality, its most likely a middle-aged, nerdy fat dude helping you out on the other end.
Carver explains, People like attractive people. They dont want to see that guy on the site.
Usually when someone calls customer support, theyre frustrated or upset about something, and Carver believes companies use attractive models to spin peoples anger into a positive thing, since they think theyll be talking to a hot chick.
He says, Its kind of a strange trend, but companies like to create the illusion that their brand is sexy in some way. Its not very deep.
