Question Beautifulpeople.com

So I read it on the news....there's this site where people register, send a picture of themselves and then their admission is approved or denied according to some sort of tribunal of beauty.

I wonder...how many of you would consider expose your "beauty" to be judged by, so called by themselves, beautiful others?

I did not visit the site yet...and I feel tempted to give it a try acknowledging in advance that I will be rejected. (and maybe puked over my pics)

Edit: The site has already rejected 1.8 million applications

What do you say?

Re: Beautifulpeople.com

Nothing against brits...I'm just copying some news about this site.

http://www.reuters.com/article/oddly...5AA4E620091111

Quote:
LONDON (Reuters) - Britons are among the ugliest people in the world, according to a dating website that says it only allows "beautiful people" to join.

Fewer than one in eight British men and just three in 20 women who have applied to BeautifulPeople.com have been accepted, an emailed statement from the website showed.

Existing members of the "elite dating site" rate how attractive potential members are over a 48 hour period, after applicants upload a recent photo and personal profile.

Swedish men have proved the most successful, with 65 percent being accepted, while Norwegian women are considered the most beautiful with 76 percent accepted, the website said.

The way that BeautifulPeople.com accepts new members is simple. A potential member applies with a photo and a brief profile. Over 48 hours, existing members of the opposite sex vote whether or not to admit them, the site said.

Options are: "Yes definitely," "Hmm yes, O.K," "Hmm no, not really" and "No definitely not."

The site was founded in 2002 in Denmark and went live across the globe last month. Since then, the site has rejected nearly 1.8 million people from 190 countries, admitting just 360,000 new members.

"I would say Britain is stumbling because they don't spend as much time polishing up their appearance and they are letting themselves down on physical fitness," Beautiful People managing director Greg Hodge said. "Next to Brazilian and Scandinavian beauties, British people just aren't as toned or glamorous."

Only the male Russian and Polish applicants fared worse than British men, although Russian women had a 44 percent acceptance rate. Polish women did not appear in the table.

German applicants were slated for offering up unflattering photographs, which may have hindered their acceptance rates at 15 percent for men and 13 percent for women, the lowest rate in their category.

"German men and women aren't faring well, but they are submitting stern images, they need to soften up," Hodge said.

Re: Beautifulpeople.com

Nah, if Polish women started to apply they would have made that table of theirs explode
