“Ni que...” in contrast with another clause

“Ni que...” in contrast with another clause

Does Spanish allow combining this construction to say:

“No se qué ves en ese chico. No es totalmente feo pero ni que fuera Brad Pitt.”

Or could/should I say, “No es feo pero (tampoco) no es como si fuera...”

Thanks!

Hola A,

You could say your second option, but note that it would be "tampoco es..." (not tampoco no es...), so:

"No es feo, pero tampoco es como si fuera Brad Pitt."
