"We responded to complaints by moving the newly chubby members back to the rating stage.
This is the same as having them re-apply," Greg Hodge, managing director of Beautiful People.com, said in a statement.
(CNN) -- A dating site that markets itself as an elite community for beautiful people with a "strict ban on ugly people" has axed about 5,000 members for packing on the pounds during the holiday season.
The international site Beautiful threw out members after they posted photos "revealing that they have let themselves go," according to a company statement.
Some gave the site a shot again, hoping fellow users might not see them as the "fatties" others had. Maintaining those standards is what the site is about, Hodge said, and that's why people were expelled.
"Their re-applications were reviewed by existing members, and only a few hundred were voted back in. Hodge admits, and has admitted from the time his company started, that his site may not be fair, but people want to date someone they are attracted to. Yes, it is, because our members want it to be," Hodge said when the company started out in 2005. "Every year we see that some of our members from Western cultures eat and drink to excess over the holidays, and clearly their looks suffer," he said in a statement.
A spokesperson for Plenty of Fish told The Mirror that “Ash” had been removed from the site.“I had to google this, but that dress size, with a waist around 34 inches, indicates a woman as being very overweight and all likelihood medically obese.” The obnoxious message continued: “Without trying to sound big headed, I’m fairly good looking, I keep myself as fit as I can, I have a highly skilled job that I work very hard at and consequently earn well into six figures. “This means that I can afford to be quite prescriptive in my search and I absolutely do not have to consider dating women who are over 30 and overweight.“There is obviously a large population of Scottish ladies who have a clearly unrealistic opinion of their own appeal/attractiveness as potential partners.And apparently, enough beautiful people were angry that some members had enjoyed a bit too many treats during the holiday season.So Beautiful sent those flagged members e-mails, according to the company statement, telling them they could register again for the site when the extra pudge was gone.
“I was also specific about weight as I have never been attracted to big women.
