Britons among the "ugliest people", dating site says

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.


flamealert! Ah....I already knew that. I think we should all apply to the web site to find out who the truly beautiful HWA'ers are. flamealert!


Get Hippied out!

Why would the good-looking Brits be joining a dating website? Perhaps none of them are single... hmmm? ;)

That's a rich link posted from an american, that comes from a country that thrives in Mullets, plastic surgery,
botox, silicon, nasal speech, bleached teeth, and tons of makeup & magic mirrors just to make them look good. Says a lot to me... lol

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

That's because they all sent in the same two pictures.

Seriously, appearance is only skin deep. For the humanity, we should NOT judge each other by such superficial criteria. And we need to educate our young's to not taking too seriously about theirs or others looks.

Actually, it's England that's the problem. Scotland's on its own and doesn't require
Dating sites, because we are all beautiful, lovely ppl. But since England's on the
map for uglyness... the have to say it's Briton. LMFAO!

I really wish they would stop calling England Britain(We know Scottish Folks are Sexy) lol.

But I have a problem with that Website, If you are really are Gorgeous then WTF are you doing going to a Dating Website?.

Yeah Ive heard the some folks can't get out the House for reasons etc etc, but if you are beautiful you don't need to go far.

But on a Funny Note, I loved the to Ugly to sign up, click here to Browse as a guest.
