    have you ever seen somebody who was so ugly that you thought "oh he/she hasn't fully evolved yet"; not quite chimpanzee but not quite human yet?

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I've never seen one. I would be more concerned about how they smell. 🙄

    Some of them would be beautiful to other half chimps and half humans, but just like full humans, some would be pretty ugly.

    Since Chimpanzees are at the same evolutionary stage as us it would be a bit difficult to see don't you think?
    You've made the usual mistake - that is, to assume that:

    1. humans have evolved from apes - ie. chimps, gorillas, bonobos, etc.
    2. humans are more evolved than other species

    The first is a mistake.
    The second is meaningless.

    Not entirely a mistake. Humans did evolve from a chimp-like ape which was a common ancestor to both chimps and humans. In fact if we saw one today, most people would think it was a chimp. It would have been closer to a chimp than a gorilla is for example.
    Humans are still apes though.
