A person who is painfully average would rate on a scale of 1-10 directly in the middle, a 5. This causes the person to become almost invisible because of their mediocrity rendering them completely undesirable. Therefore it's better to be a 4 than a 5.
I'd rather be with Rachel than Amy. Rachel's a 4 but it's better than being with a painfully average 5.
