, Greg Hodge, is opening a Los Angeles bar for beautiful people only. The first step to getting in is to join the website, where you send headshots, bodyshots and a profile. Applicants then have to pass a rating process where existing members vote on applicants over a nail-biting 48-hour period.
We’ve got to agree there, how many “spirit” one night stands have you heard of? The bar will be an exclusive, members only safe space for the gorgeous people to hang out in, where they won't be visually assaulted by the sight of ugly people. You can be assured only symmetrical beauties are inside so you don’t have a reaction.
Mentoring is currently free, but Hodge envisions monetizing it.
Perhaps mentors will eventually charge for their services, and the website will take a cut.
Hodge is a former nightclub owner from London who is now managing director for Beautiful People.com, a website he took global five years ago.
The website’s managing director Greg Hodge said: “We listen to our members and they are fed up of going out to expensive bars, hoping to meet similarly beautiful people, only to spend the night wishing that the lighting was lower.“We are very excited about opening our flagship bar.” He said his team would put the same ethos into the bar project as they did when they launched the dating site, which is “taking the Beautiful People concept into the real world.” Non-members and guests will be allowed into the bar if they pass a “stringent assessment” by a judging panel described as the club’s “beauty police”.Mr Hodge said exceptions would sometimes be made for people “who many not be attractive” but were very rich. Like the kind of people who burn your retinas when you stare too long. “The idea for the bar springs from the website,” Greg tells , saying that in an ideal world, we “would look across the bar and see a person’s spirit or soul,” but that’s not the case. Yes, but this is the “VIP room” for beautiful people."It's a tough business model, because most of the people that knock on the door don't get in." A new way to join the 'Mile High Club,' for a fee So now he's created a mentoring program cheekily called "Adopt an Ugly Person." In the new program, Beautiful People members ranging from stylists to therapists volunteer to coach applicants on how to be more, well, beautiful.
