WELL THAT'S just harsh.
A dating website which bills itself as being exclusively for attractive people has called Irish men the 'undisputed ugliest' in the world, after it was revealed that just 6% of Irish male applicants to the website were accepted-- the lowest out of any other country.
The so-called beautifulpeople.com requires applicants to send a photograph of themselves to the website, which is then rated or slated by members of the community, who decide if the applicant should be allowed in.
On average, about 20% of applicants are succesful in joining... which makes the Irish men's rate of 6% pretty dismal in comparison.
A spokesperson for the website said: “There are many examples of handsome Irish men such as Cillian Murphy, Colin Farrell and Jamie Dornan. But this is the exception and not the norm.”
We're too shocked by the sheer audacity to even be offended right now.
Irish women tend to fair much better than our male counterparts however, as the website's data shows that Irish beours are tied with France to be the 6th-most-succesful applicants in the world.
Apparently, Dublin lads have the highest chance of being attractive enough to join the exclusive dating site, followed by feens from Cork, Galway and Belfast.
Lads from Limerick, however, had the lowest chance of getting in. Probably beause they're just too daycent.
