I7. Male Spokespeople: Antecedents and Consequences of Social Comparison

This study demonstrated that highly attractive male spokespeople revealing muscles or gazing directly at viewers evoked upward comparisons and stronger envy emotions from male consumers. Stronger relative benign envy facilitates advertising effects. Female image and beauty type moderate the formation of envy. Results contribute to social comparison and envy theories.
