When BeautifulPeople.com says only the beautiful need apply, they really mean it.
And don’t even think about that second helping of pumpkin pie!
An online dating site that considers itself to be an elite community for beautiful people with a “strict ban on ugly people” has dumped 5,000 members for packing on the holiday pounds.
The international site threw out members after they posted photos “revealing that they have let themselves go,” according to a company statement.
]]>“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.”
that users can join only after enough members vote them “beautiful” during the 48 hours after their profile is uploaded. That’s so harsh!
And apparently, enough beautiful people were angry that other members had let themselves slide over Christmas.
So BeautifulPeople.com sent the flagged folks e-mails telling them they could register again when the extra pounds were off.
The company “expelled”
1,520 users from the U.S., 832 from the U.K., 533 from Canada, 510 from Poland, 425 from Germany, 402 from Italy, 323 from France, 220 from Denmark, 176 from Turkey. And 88 people from Russia. Only 88?
With the official notice of expulsion, the site gave users suggestions for boot camps and workout facilities to get themselves back in shape.
Wow. This makes real-life dating seem much easier. Less rejection.
