BeautifulPeople.com now has a global membership which exceeds 540,000. Up to 4 million unique visitors visit the site daily. Wherever the site has launched, it has sparked controversy and debate. It has even spawned rival websites catering to rejects and various attempts have been made to block the service in the Middle East.

Robert Hintze, founder of BeautifulPeople.com, said: "Despite considerable backlash against us, the numbers don't lie - we are catering to a very clear demand. BeautifulPeople.com may be morally ugly to our critics, but our growing success is a very beautiful truth."

So who are the fairest of them all?

Greg Hodge, managing director of BeautifulPeople.com said: "Sweden and Brazil are proving to be the most aesthetically blessed nations in the world. German men and women aren't faring well, but they are submitting stern images, they need to soften up. The same is true of Russian men, although the fact remains that many are just extremely unattractive.

"I would say Britain is stumbling because they don't spend as much time polishing up their appearance and they are letting themselves down on physical 'fitness.' Next to Brazilian and Scandinavian beauties, British people just aren't as toned or glamorous."

How BeautifulPeople.com works

The way that BeautifulPeople.com works is simple. A potential member applies with a photo and a brief profile. Over 48 hours, existing members of the opposite sex vote whether or not to admit them in to their exclusive fold. Options are 'Yes definitely', 'Hmm yes, O.K', 'Hmm no, not really' and 'NO Definitely NOT'. The system is completely democratic and the majority vote is final.

The kudos of being accepted is currently prompting 400 hopeful members to submit applications every minute during peak traffic times.
