Brit’s Struggle On BeautifulPeople.com

November 11, 2009

U.K. (ChattahBox) – By now you will have heard about the dating website BeautifulPeople.com, which only allows who they deem to be the most attractive to join. While a 5 our of 6 applicants are turned down, Brits are the lowest ranking applicants for the website.

Less than 12% of British men, and 15% of British women, are accepted from the United Kingdom by the website, with Germany faring only slightly better.

“Asking why British people are doing so badly is a tough question,” Greg Hodge, the site’s managing director, said. “It hurts me – I’m English.

“I think there is less emphasis on appearance in the UK than overseas. If you go to some countries they are very into how they look – very health and body conscious. The UK attitude is a bit more about kicking back and relaxing, and having a few drinks in the pub after work.”

The highest percentage of the 360,000 of 1.8 million applicants accepted are Swedish men, and Norwegian women, who make up 65% and 76% respectively.

    I guess the real question is, why in the name of Ghu would anyone want to be included in such a superficial, elitest group of narcissists? I mean, I could see Paris Hilton or Britney Spears wanting to hang out with other morons who could be considered decorative, but why would a *normal* person want that?

    Ugly as Sin…that’s me! But I’ve still never had to use a dating agency and I’m married to a woman who I consider to be beautiful.
    What a bunch of saddos!
