Not Beautiful? Then You Have No Chance at This Dating Site

'Ugly' people booted off date site for beautiful users

More than 30,000 people have been banned from a dating website which says it's exclusively limited to beautiful users.

BeautifulPeople.com gets existing users to vote on whether or not someone's attractive enough to join.

But the site's boss says it was hit by a virus which let tens of thousands of people join without passing that test.

Most of them have now been sent an email apologising and saying they were "wrongly admitted".

In total 5.5 million people have been rejected by the site which claims to have 700,000 members around the world.

Wrongly admitted

Greg Hodge, the site's managing director, said: "We got suspicious when tens of thousands of new members were accepted, many of whom were no oil painting.

"We responded immediately, repairing the damage from the Shrek virus and putting every new member [to the vote].

"We have sincere regret for the unfortunate people who were wrongly admitted to the site and who believed, albeit for a short while, that they were beautiful," he added.

There's no evidence yet about who might have been behind the hack although it's thought an ex-employee could be involved.

Critics though say it could be nothing more than an elaborate PR stunt.

According to reports the site has a history of self-promotion.

After Christmas it asked users to reapply "if they had let themselves go" during the holiday season.

Around one in seven applicants is accepted with the majority of successful new members coming from the USA, Denmark and France according to figures from the site.

The UK is among the countries with the highest rate of rejection alongside Russia and Poland.

I made a profile for a laugh with this fellow - he's certainly more attractive than most people on that site wouldn't you say?
