    Dating Site Singles Out Swedes As World's Most Beautiful Men

    Is it the chiselled jaw, the tall and blonde reputation or the manly genes of their Viking roots?

    Swedish men have been judged as the world’s best looking by a dating website especially for beautiful people, while blokes from Britain have landed near the bottom of the list.

    Website BeautifulPeople.com promises members they won't be ”filtering through unattractive people” on their pages.

    The fate of an application is dependent on whether your face fits as judged by existing members.

    Swedish men fair the best with 65 percent of applicants accepted, according to figures released by the site.

    The world's second most beautiful males can be found in Brazil, with 45 percent of applicants accepted, while Danish men round out the top three, boasting a 40 percent rate of acceptance.

    In comparison, only 12 percent of British guys made the grade and a mere 9 percent of Russian and Polish men who registered were deemed model applicants.

    Scandinavian beauties also took the top spots for the fairer sex with 68 percent of Swedish woman being accepted, a percentage high enough to put them in second place and a notch below the 75 percent approval rate for women from Norway, deemed by the dating site to be the world's most beautiful.

    Women from Iceland came in a close third, with 66 percent being allowed to post their profiles on BeautifulPeople.com.

    Since the site was launched in 2002 around two million people have been told their looks are not good enough to join.

    “It might sound morally wrong to our critics but our growing success is the beautiful truth,” said the site's managing director Greg Hodge in a statement.

    What??? British blokes at the bottom

    They'd change their mind if they saw MY photo (... now, how do I use this advanced Photoshop software package?)

    I've never heard anyone that considered Scandinavian males to be attractive. Light features are usually considered less attractive than dark features when it comes to males, so I thought southern Europe would top the list. And what's the deal with Brazil? It has a very mixed population so a Brazilian could be anything from an ameriindian, a blonde of European origin, to black, and often they are mixes.

    The conclusion of the article sounds reasonable to me, but.... I'm extremely skeptical about the methodology.

    More specifically, coming to ANY kind of conclusion based on information from profiles on websites is a big, loud FAIL, in my opinion.


    I was a member of beautifulpeople.com for several months (years ago), and although the proportion of ugly people was lower than on other sites, the proportion of blatantly fake profiles was just as high if not higher. People -- both men and women -- using pictures of models or sometimes even actors, with very distorted representations of height, weight, and age, and so on.

    So you have to take that into consideration. How many people in each country were using their own pictures? How many were even using pictures of people from the country they said they were from? All of this makes conclusion from this kind of analysis.... shakey, at best.

    Hmm, so then, the most beautiful children would be a mix between Swedish fathers and Norwegian mothers?

    I saw this earlier in the week where it was being reported as 'british the ugliest people' with more rejections than other countires

    but I first heard of the site the week before, I thought it sounded funny, but it was reported that it's a con, they actually accept anybody (after a 'process' that makes it seem as if they are really being approved). So this press release is probably just a PR stunt to increase awareness of the website, along with the usual stereotypes of 'ugly brits' coming from an american ('Greg Hodge').

    Scottish journalist sticks the boot into Germans:

    We can't even beat the Germans at being ugly

    The Lithuanians are hunkier than us. So are the Canadians, the Swedes, the Brazilians. It's a bad time to be British, says Bryony Gordon.
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/c...eing-ugly.html

    She also had a go at the blonde twins on X factor. I left a comment on there - "Just use 'Sassenachs' Bryony, people will know what you are talking about then."

    The Brazillians are a mongrel nation. They are not attractive, they are creepy.

    The survey is stupid, how can you rate the buauty of Canadians, Americans, Brazilians? They all have people from alot of different countries, and there is no "Canadian look". I don't think the British are ugly (the opposite rather), and the reason I think people vote them as ugly is because of that stereotype, they just rate British as ugly without thinking.
