Jan 5 2010'Beautiful People' Dating Website Drops A Bunch Of Fat Members After Gaining Weight


Beautiful People is a dating website for beautiful people. And apparently 5,000 members got the boot for becoming unbeautiful over the holidays by gaining weight. Big IS beautiful, jerks!

"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."

"Is it elitist? Yes, it is, because our members want it to be," Hodge said when the company started out in 2005. "Is it lookist? Yes, it is, because our members want it to be. Is it PC? No, it's not, but it's honest."

And on this site, beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder; only one in five applicants is normally accepted, a company statement said.

Wow, a dating website exclusively for good looking people. Why didn't I think of that? Oh right, I did. I'm not only the president -- I'm also a client badass wizard. Abracadabra bitches!

Stupid fat people. Go be fat some place else.

@5 Whats wrong? Did someone piss in your Corn Flakes?

Hey, you, come here...closer...I got a secret...WHO GIVES A FUCK?

@6, No, he just never received enough loving attention from his parents. He goes through life thinking that being obnoxious will get him everything he wants.

I almost feel sorry for the c0cksucker. Almost.

Anyway, back to being post-relevant. I have a lifetime subscription to this site.

hello people i am LSDIESEL
oohh wow I am a pansy i have a lifetime subscription to a dating website because Im too ugly and i have to rely on the innernets to get me some pusssehh!!!!


@9 Nobody likes "Fake LSD" (especially Phish heads!) so don't bother trying
...... just sayin

but they're still single so they can't be as stunning as they'd like to be...unless they're all single cos they can't drag themselves away from a mirror long enough to meet anyone. gah

GW, you have started a WAR, a WAR I TELL YOU!!!

You hath deleted my posts, they were so true, yet you went and banished them from the interface of your blog...

The people are very angry, there will be a backlash against you from my community of Jihads...

We are the Elite Jihadists, we also specialise in web development...

You will pay GW, you will pay the price..

Its probably going to be $2.74

@9 fake LSDiesel

Did being fake naas get boring? GET A LIFE!

Beautiful people - DO NOT GET FAT or we put you on the bus back home!!!!!!!!!!!!

ahah fat people suck. everyone hates fat people.
kill em with fire

@2 Ah, I went to the link! LOL

estos si estan serios de personas bellezas

@16 I didn't even know there was a CubbyChasers.com!!!
I was just making a joke...... just sayin

@9, Hey there good lookin' whaddya say we go back to my place for some criss-cross hanky panky?

LOL Fatties. I gotta say I agree with him though...you gotta keep your clientelle happy so they will continue to pay you. Honestly, he's probably doing them a favor because the fattlies will be more motivated to lose the weight.

Is this the same as the "Darwinism" dating site or are they two separate entities?

In some parts of Africa fat people are considered beautiful and highly coveted.
All the rejects can follow me to my new website, "Phat's the next black ".

do beautiful people really need dating web sites? Isn't that like making a burger shop for vegetarians?

Probably not true. This sounds like a publicity stunt by the owners of Beautiful People web site. How do they know people got fat over the holidays? Weight verifing login scale hooked to their computers?

So the holidays just passed...did all 5,000 people rush to take pictures of how fat they got and post them on their Beautiful People bio page? and they did this because they didn't know that weight was one of the qualities, just like when they filled out the original application? apparently, brains isn't a requirement.

I belong to a dating site only for virgins.
Unfortunately, nobody was kicked out over the holidays.


My mummy says im beautiful.

The sperm is one of the smallest cells in the (male) body, and the ovum (or egg) is one of the largest cells in the (female) body..........

sooooooooo does that make sperm the "Ultimate Chubby Chaser"?

There is also no option for gay/lesbian/trans... people - this website is ridiculous. But I made a profile anyway ;)

Why would you update your picture if you got fat?

There seems to be a very obvious solution here...

@29 Yeah..... PUT DOWN THE FORK!!!!!!!

You know, I'd buy his "just being honest" shtick except for one thing. He used the term 'fatty.' It's way down on the list of insult severity-- below 'retard' and above 'goober'. Still, it's an insult, which tells me this guy's site is more about getting off on his looks & putting other people down than it is about being "honest."

If he was _really_ honest, he'd say, "Our clientele isn't interested in getting laid, but in propping up our weak egos by making other people feel bad."

hot diggity - where do I apply?

every "beautiful person" that i see today, gets a punch in the vagina. male or female.

soooo, why do beautiful people need a website?
i mean....they're "beautiful," right?
don't us ugly mugs need 'em?
maybe because the people who sign up for it are ASSHOLES!
(and high school, quarterback, date rapists!)
or shallow, whatever.

Hahah this is soooo fun! My girlfriend bought a book a few days ago and in this book the CEO of Beautiful People is featured where he gives good advice on how to lose weight and look good!
Haha and just a few months later they do this?!
The book just came out in the US and is called 'the models diet - more than a body' and it appears that Robert Hintze from Beautiful People could learn a bit from that book .... it's about MORE THAN A BODY !!!

I'm surprised there hasn't been a family guy reference by now.

Gizmoduck, you're an asshole. You and Hintze deserve each other. Now why don't you two have a p3nis salad while I head back to the Sizzler buffet, they just put fresh chicken wings on there!

beautiful people... yuk! there's nothing uglier!
