Before I write anything else, let me say that I am merely re-telling something that I read. By no means am I agreeing to the idea. Now that that’s clear, who do you think are the ugliest people in the world?
If the web site BeautifulPeople.com is to be believed, Britons are among the ugliest people in existence today. This web site is being presented as an “elite dating site,” which only “beautiful people” can join. Talk about discrimination, huh?
Anyhow, the site has presented some figures saying that a mere 1 out of 8 British males and 3 out of 20 females make it past their application. And who makes the decision whether an applicant can be considered a member or not? The application process is actually quite simple. An interested individual has to send a profile picture and a short description. This is presented to the existing members – of the opposite sex only, interestingly. After 48 hours, the members vote on the decision.
On the other end of the spectrum, the most successful men are from Sweden while the most attractive women are from Norway. The web site is accepting applications from about 190 countries from all over the world. It would be interesting to send in an application just to see how you would fare, wouldn’t it?
In any case, this is what’s running through my mind: whatever happened to inner beauty and beauty is in the eye of the beholder? I guess I am behind the times?
