Dating site for beautiful people expels 'fatties' after holiday weight gain

CNN) -- A dating site that markets itself as an elite community for beautiful people with a "strict ban on ugly people" has axed about 5,000 members for packing on the pounds during the holiday season.

The international site BeautifulPeople.com threw out members after they posted photos "revealing that they have let themselves go," according to a company statement.

"As a business, we mourn the loss of any member, but the fact remains that our members demand the high standard of beauty be upheld," said Robert Hintze, founder of BeautifulPeople.com. "Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded."


I know I shouldn't be surprised by anything on the Internet but this is just laughable. Even the name of the site sounds cheesy. How vain must one be to sign up for BeautifulPeople.com? And then to be sent an email saying you are no longer beautiful!  I see distraught women around the world bursting into tears and sticking their finger down their throat.

What, they had to post revealing shots of themselves on Jan 1 or 2 - to show if they had pigged out or not?
I don't believe a word of this, it sounds like promo for a delusional web business.
