You're sexy or you're out

you are sexy

An international dating site has rejected over 7.5 milion aplicants, because it accepts only people voted 'beautiful' by other members.

Everyone can register to BeautifulPeople, but there is a 48-hour voting period where members of the opposite sex decide whether you are attractive enough to join, Mailonline reports.

The interesting thing is that people are so desperate to join the so-called 'elite dating site' that they are undergoing extreme makeovers to make the cut. Since its launch in 2003, the website accepted about 800.000 membes and rejected almost ten times more.

Greg Hodge, managing director of BeautifulPeople, dismisses accusations of sexism from people rejected and believes some of them really changed their life for the better: 'There are no limits to the number of times a rejected applicant can attempt to re-apply, so it is not unusual for us to see three, four or sometimes more than 20 attempts to get through our very stringent voting-in process. Take a look at some of the best looking celebrities in Hollywood and it's clear to see they weren't born beautiful. Demi Moore, Nicole Kidman and Ryan Seacrest are all great examples and an inspiration to unattractive people the world over so if they can do it, then so can you'.

Mr. Hodge points out that simple solutions could bring you success: 'Sometimes it's just down to straightening your teeth, curbing your appetite, grooming yourself with a little more care and getting down to the gym. We've also recently launched a mentoring service, pairing some of our most successful members who are also professional beauty experts, stylists and confidence coaches with beautiful hopefuls who don't know how to improve their looks'.

Successful stories? Of course. Aleksandra Pieczek, an administration student from Poland, said her transformation has changed her life. 'I didn't want to be nobody, so I started to change my life - I changed my diet, my lifestyle, I started to be active, following a Mel B fitness programme, using my bike, swimming, zumba etc. After one year I lost about 8 kg, my hair is now so long and healthy, I met someone new who helped me to change - I started studying, I became a cheerleader and photomodel'.

One male user, Alexander Siegwardt, a German student, said of the site: 'I was rejected by BeautifulPeople so many times, so I decided to change my life to boost my confidence. I worked out 7 times a week for 9 months now and I simply enjoy my transformation as much the attention and interest from others that I get.'

The most beautiful country regarding the acceptance rate is currently Sweden and the ugliest country...UK. 'It pains me because I'm British, but our combined lack of effort with profile pictures, our pub culture, lack of grooming and lack of active lifestyles, are seeing us plummet to the bottom of the pile. Applying with a selfie, pint in hand just won't do. If you keep getting rejected, there are other sites for you - or you need to re-think your look', said Hodge.
