Beautiful People is a dating website for beautiful people. And apparently 5,000 members got the boot for becoming unbeautiful over the holidays by gaining weight. Big IS beautiful, jerks!
"As a business, we mourn the loss of any member, but the fact remains that our members demand the high standard of beauty be upheld," said Robert Hintze, founder of BeautifulPeople.com. "Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded."
"Is it elitist? Yes, it is, because our members want it to be," Hodge said when the company started out in 2005. "Is it lookist? Yes, it is, because our members want it to be. Is it PC? No, it's not, but it's honest."
And on this site, beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder; only one in five applicants is normally accepted, a company statement said.
Wow, a dating website exclusively for good looking people. Why didn't I think of that? Oh right, I did. I'm not only the president -- I'm also a client badass wizard. Abracadabra bitches!
Thanks to hildAT-AT, jason and Ellen, who were all deemed too attractive for the site.
