BeautifulPeople.com, the online dating website that only allows good-looking people based on the opinions of the people who use it, have released a 90-second video in response recent attacks on the site’s concept.
In order to achieve membership for the site exclusively aimed at “beautiful men and women”, you must upload a picture and be judged by members on appearance alone for a 72-hour period, where you could be voted from anything to “yes certainly” through to “absolutely not.”
If you do not receive enough positive votes, you will be kicked off the site. Currently, an average of one in eight applicants are accepted onto the site.
The video entitled “REALLY?” arrives after the site was attacked by a computer virus – named Shrek after the film about how looks should not matter – in June 2011. Up to 30,000 gained membership without going through the ruthless membership process, who were then unceremoniously kicked off the site at a financial cost of more than £62,000 (£100,000) to the site’s operators.
