    'Fatties' kicked off dating website

    Piling on the pounds at Christmas may put a slight dampener on the New Year but the consequences were rather more grave for more than 5,000 people expelled from an online dating community.

    The so-called "festive fatties" were kicked off BeautifulPeople.com for losing their looks over the holiday season.
    The site, which has a strict ban on "ugly people", said it had thrown out more than 5,000 members from around the world who had put on weight.

    I know that it is wrong and that people shouldn't be judged on looks or weight but my good God that story made me chuckle!!

    It is really egotistical to put yourself on a site called 'Beautiful People' anyway isn't it?!

    They vet you very strictly to let you on in the first place, there was something on (I think) the One Show the other week and the reporter was rejected.
    Never mind Jacqui think how much money you've saved :p

    Just a thought,,,,,,, SW consultants? :rolleyes:

    I agree that I did laugh when I read this, but not because I agree with it in anyway - more a case of laugh at the website.

    I've heard about 'BeautifulPeople' before and afterwards thought that it's the perfect place for those who only see beauty as skin deep. And, ironically, most people who were shown as members on the show weren't beautiful at all. Jeesh ANYONE can look that 'beautiful' with hair extensions, eye lash extensions, being injected with collogen/botox and a faceful of makeup...and that's just the men ;)

    I think it's a disgrace really that people can be so judgemental on people based on looks and weight. And I bet their idea of 'fat' would be anyone over a size 10 given the size 0 fad.

    Eugh.

    Well, though I personally think my OH is a sex pot, it's his personality that I love. So though I have eye candy right now, looks fade with time but he will always be beautiful for who he is. And I'd rather have that anything else.

    Totally agree. MY Oh isnt a typically 'beautiful' bloke. But he has the most gorgeous eyes, a cute laugh and when tanned with his olive skin.. ooo ;) LOL.
    but eventually he will look like his dad.. and aslong as he's still the same person on the inside, thats a'ok with me! X
