Fake or Ugly
Two women, same personality, job and family values. Both essentially "love of your life" quality.
Would you rather date that woman if she were naturally ugly or had fake boobs, fake nose, fake tan et cetera?

I wouldn't date that person in either situation, but I like genuine people more than I like fake ones... so obviously that would put ugly people before fake people.
I can appreciate genuine people more because it seems like people who don't fake things are rare and have to fight hard to not become fake. It also shows me that they don't place serious value on societal expectations, or that they don't do something just because someone else does it (or a lot of people do it). It's harder to put off a million people's actions as being fruitless than to carry on...
It's also important to adapt though. Say, you have an ugly person without a sense of passion or style vs an ugly person who is authentic and has a sense of style... the one with style or passion is better... but that's more of a "ugly on the inside" issue that matters a lot more to me than most people (or it would seem).

It takes a lot of time and energy to create and maintain a "beautiful" fake appearance, and it usually shows in personal development.
A stereotypical "fake" woman allocates a lot of resources on: regular hair/nail appointments, working out, tanning, plastic surgery and recovery, buying clothes, etc. This is in addition to an intense daily ritual of remaking herself with cosmetics. The same applies to men, albeit to a somewhat lesser extent in many cases.
The amount of time spent on these activities leaves less for the things that make people interesting and unique such as hobbies or intellectual pursuits.
Also, most people who place priority on their appearance seem to rely heavily on it when dealing with others. If they're already attractive ("fake" in this case), it's easier to make friends and get dates, whereas those who are deemed conventionally unattractive often develop other skills that help them to relate to people. Thus the "ugly" ones are the funniest, or the smartest, or the most talented in some respect compared to their fake counterparts.
Of course there are exceptions, but conventionally unattractive people are generally much more interesting and have better-developed personalities than fake ones. I'd go for "ugly".

I feel this question creates a false dichotomy (that "fake" does not imply horrendously ugly).
I consider anyone that gets plastic surgery, a boob job and a fake tan to have irreconcilable character defects - selfishness, low self-esteem, being superficial, etc.
In addition, the number of people I would classify as "ugly" are exceedingly low.
