Norwegian, Swedish, and Brazilians fare the best on BeautifulPeople.com, while Brits, such as its managing director Greg Hodge (left) are the least successful. But would Dane founder Robert Hintze (right) be accepted to his own site after his hairline finishes receding?

Rejection by a date is hard enough, but how bad must it feel to be rejected by the entire dating site for being unattractive?
Ask a Brit. Only 12 percent of British men and 15 percent of British women have been accepted by super-shallow dating site BeautifulPeople.com, according to an article in The Telegraph. This statistic officially steals the “Dating Douche” title away from iPhone users and bestows it on BeautifulPeople.com founder, Robert Hintze.
The Danish website has existing members judge new applicant photos over a 48-hour period with answers ranging from ‘Yes definitely’, ‘Hmmm yes, OK’, ‘Hmmm no, not really’ and ‘NO definitely NOT.’


Apparently their members don’t have day-jobs or have nothing else to do with their time: in the past two weeks, the site has rejected more than 1.8 million dating hopefuls and has accepted only 360,000 members. Applicants from Sweden, Brazil and Norway have the most success, while punters from the UK and Germany have the least. Overall, five out of six applicants are turned away.
These statistics are amusing, but I’m more interested in success rates, which are notably absent from press releases. Do members who fork over the $25 monthly fee have any more luck finding love online than at other sites? Not for British founding member Greg Hodge — although he was accepted to BeautifulPeople.com (only in Japan), he met his wife offline.
