BeautifulPeople.com is a dating site for all of you who get queasy double-clicking through the reams of average-looking folks on normal sites. If human imperfections make you gag, then it may be time to run your profile picture through the Photoshop monkeys and try your luck at Beautiful People.com. But don't expect a coveted slot. In the same vein as a Tyra Banks-worthy model casting call, you may just not be what it takes. Beauty Rituals: U.S. vs. France

As was the case with, oh, over 80 percent of the British who tried to sign up. BeautifulPeople.com is reportedly a bit discriminatory against the Brits. Blame it on all the fish, chips and stout.
According to a recent item in the Telegraph, about one in eight British men make the cut and about three in every 20 women. Pretty pathetic results for the English.
"I think there is less emphasis on appearance in the UK than overseas," Beautiful People managing director Greg Hodge said. "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."
That's a great point. Where would these beauties go on a first date? A fitness class? Raw food restaurant? His and hers facials? We'd imagine grabbing a drink would be too caloric and aging. Alcohol dries out the skin. Makes you look older. Sober Dating: How To Date Without Drinking
Who is Head of Admissions anyway? Is this a panel of model scouts? Connoisseurs of beauty?
Nope. Rather than appoint a high court of Hot Or Not judges, the site allows its own snooty and insecure chiseled-cheeked folks to deny or accept new hopefuls. They rate all prospective daters with a "Yes definitely', 'Hmmm yes, OK', 'Hmmm no, not really' and 'NO definitely NOT." Those with the highest scores stay.

If you're curious what countries rank highest (and where you should plan your next beautiful people safari), than look no farther than Norway, Sweden and Brazil. A whopping 65 percent of Swedish men are granted admission, as are 78 percent of Norwegian ladies. We're guessing Beautiful People.com is very, very blonde.
