USA TODAY -- July 28 -- BeautifulPeople functions more like an invitation-only social club. The criteria are shamelessly superficial: a recent photograph (bikinis and bare biceps encouraged) and body statistics. The site also accepts "people with personal/professional qualities that stand out from the majority" - like "Sandhill," an entrepreneur with a goofy grin who says his income is $1 million-plus. An applicant's photo and profile is posted for three days. Members grade candidates of the opposite sex.
Mark Brooks: How wonderfully shallow.
