US Television show host Trevor Noah has said the New Zealand accent "is not sexy" after a poll described the New Zealand accent as the sexiest in the world, saying it was "charming". 

The Daily Show host disagreed with the poll saying the list was completely wrong. 

"I love New Zealand, it's a great country, wonderful people, but the accent is not sexy. It's not sexy. No-one's ever listening to a New Zealand accent, getting turned on," Noah said on the show.
