Disagree. Hot girls may make a bad show vaguely tolerable, but they do not constitute a reason to watch a bad show in and of themselves. Claiming hot girls is a form of apologism as weak as "the show has also adressed alot of issues that teens face throughout the course of highschool".
If you watch the show, you watch it because you enjoy flimsy, hackneyed plots that serve mostly to lead up to performances of terrible pop songs, and you enjoy the performances of terrible pop songs.

This is a really good point. Particularly in college, dressing like a jackass will attract attention. Attention will get you conversations with girls, even though there's a decent chance they'll be corny and attention-seeking as well.
There was a decent discussion of "peacocking" in another thread, and I think wearing an unnecessary and incongruous necktie is a fair example of this. (see also: UrbanAesthetics)
