Only the beautiful people need apply

Like a gated community for hotties, BeautifulPeople.net is an elite Canadian club with "a strict ban on ugliness." Officially launching today, the controversial site -- versions of which have been introduced successfully in 15 other countries since 2002 -- is only open to men and women who are easy on the eyes, with members rating the photos of new applicants to determine their eligibility.

If you look like Charlize Theron, you're in. If you look like Charlize Theron in Monster, you're out.

Calling BeautifulPeople elitist but fair, the site's operators say they're "separating the hippos from the cheetahs" in the social networking jungle.
