Beautifulpeople.com, the website which only allows 'beautiful' people on its pages lest its broadband crashes due to ugly-itis (only that last part is a joke), has just unveiled its latest offering for 2014: a calendar.
There's no denying that some of the people on the website are good-looking, but the idea of a website that aims to replicate the same crappy microcosm of school life in the adult world (where only the beautiful kids are popular) is a bit hard to stomach.
However, while some can't help snorting with laughter at cover star and model Satine's quote that "moving in circles with such beautiful people is a real thrill", we do like the fact that a 38-year-old beat some of the younger women to the coveted spot.
Others also have worthy professions, with James Lucas, a 25-year-old 'Henry Cavill lookalike' who is a nuclear engineer in the US Navy and Julian Ostensen, a 19-year-old computer engineer from Norway.
British midwife Clare Travis-Punter's revealed why she joined.
"I joined the site 18 months ago and loved the challenge of whether I would be accepted or not. Nearly a year and a half on, and I’ve been selected to appear in the site’s 2014 calendar. It’s all been very exciting. I’ve been dating a number of members some of whom I've stayed in contact with but am still looking to meet someone I really have a connection with.”
Take a look at the pictures and tell us: is it shallow or simply good-value voyeurism?
