Why Senior ranking sergeants don't try out for officer positions?

Senior ranking sergeant such as staff sergeant, gunnery sergeant, master sergeants (commonly refer to as 1st Sergeants outside armed forces) r highly experienced career soldiers whom served years in the armed forces and has passed require exams to prove their competence. They are usually more qualify then the Officer in command (rank Lieutenant or higher) they serve directly under and assist and advice the commander. But since they are more qualify for the job, why don't they apply to become an officer them self?
