Are you a member of the dating site BeautifulPeople.com? We expect all Giz readers to be suitable. If you happened to put on a bit of weight over Christmas though, bad news—you've been thrown off.
The dating site for purely those good looking (and conceited) enough to join booted 5,000 members off after Christmas for "letting themselves go."
Robert Hintze, site founder flexed his business mind with these powerful words:
"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. Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded."
And they weren't just snacking on hamburgers and fries, with 1,520 being thrown off from the US, and a healthy representation from the yorkshire pudding-munching UK, maple syrup-guzzling Canada, then a smaller number from Poland, Germany, Italy, France, Denmark, Turkey and Russia. Never fear, however—there are plenty of dating sites out there that cater to BeautifulPeople rejects. [CNN]
