In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Thousands Turned Away by Real-World Beauty Police
BeautifulPeople.com events to include beauty watchdogs to keep ugly people out

NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Come February, BeautifulPeople.com the dating site for beautiful people only will be introducing beauty screeners at BeautifulPeople.com events across the United States.  In an effort to increase the standards by which the attractive members are held, the exclusive online dating site will be bringing door judges to events to ensure that everyone inside is attractive.

These beauty assessors, coined the Beauty Police by event attendees, will screen hopeful partygoers at all events in order to keep the unattractive masses from attending and diluting the beauty at the festivities.

According to one experienced beauty screener, Obi, "It can be hard turning hopeful beauties away; however often I am refusing members who have tried to game the system by uploading disingenuous pictures that look little like their real world appearance. The concept simply does not work if you dilute the gene pool with less-than-beautiful people."

Currently, BeautifulPeople.com events in the UK and style capitals of Europe are already subject to such a screening by the Beauty Police. Two aficionados stand by the door and verify the high level of attractiveness necessary to cross the velvet rope.  A man and a woman – check members against their profiles to verify they are either as beautiful, or more so, than the photos they used to gain membership to the site. If not, they are refused entrance and removed from the exclusive club.

Thousands of members have been turned away for letting themselves go or not living up to what might have been professionally done glamour shots or otherwise disingenuous photos posted in their online profiles.

The Beauty Police are also tasked with screening members' guests. Members of BeautifulPeople.com are permitted to bring guests to certain events on the proviso that their guests are beautiful, guests in turn must go through an on-the-spot appraisal before being allowed entrance.

"Any experienced nightclub owner will tell you that door policy is the most important aspect of any successful event, one bad apple spoils the bunch. We are no different except a bad apple in our case is simply an unattractive one," said Greg Hodge, managing director of BeautifulPeople.com.

Hodge continues: "It is not uncommon for members to bring less than beautiful guests which upsets the beauty balance and naturally members as well. A big part of what our door pickers do is to screen guests of members to make sure the highest standards in beauty are upheld."

Although there are only two Beauty Police at each gathering – unlike the democratic ratings process on the site, where members vote whether to allow someone of the opposite sex to join – these are very experienced individuals. Each one has spent hundreds of hours reviewing how members of the U.S. vote to best mimic that theme when allowing people through the door.

"We tried a few options in the past when screening our events including having guests of members who were less than beautiful don masks which we kindly provided," continued Greg Hodge. "It actually gave the parties a sexy Eyes Wide Shut Feel; however they inevitably come off during the night and spoil the sexy vibe."

The Beauty Police will be unleashed all across America with the first officially screened party being held at an inaugural event in Los Angeles. The event, Sixty Shades of Beautiful - Spring Fling, will take place at a swanky Beverly Hills home where beautiful partygoers will arrive under scrutiny.

BeautifulPeople.com

BeautifulPeople.com has over 750,000 members worldwide. 

Entry to BeautifulPeople.com is only possible after passing a 48 hour democratic rating process, where existing members vote based on photographs and a profile submitted by new applicants.  The majority of successful applicants come from the United States, Scandinavia, France and Brazil, with the least successful applicants coming from the UK, Poland, Germany and Russia.

There have been over 600 marriages through unions founded on BeautifulPeople.com and many beautiful babies born.
