News Talk Online January 5, 2010: Website Kicks Off Fat Members, Airline Security
There are so many websites for meeting people that it boggles the mind.
Some of them, like Match.com, are general in nature.
Others, like JDate, are geared to more narrow groups, like Jews, or Adult Friend Finder where people, single or married, can find less-than-committed relationship opportunities.
But one site sets itself up as the destination for good looking people. And good looking people only.
To be listed at BeautifulPeople.com you have to be voted in. And to be voted in you have to be - well - beautiful.
All well and good. But the site is creating controversy with its decision to trim its ranks - by voting off some 5,000 people judged to be too porky to meet its high standards.
Joining us on News Talk Online on the Paltalk News Networktoday to explain this decision was BeautifulPeople.com's U.S. director, model Genevieve Maylam.
The second half of the show focused on the latest developments in airline security, including the short statement made by President Obama on terrorism that was carried live on the Paltalk News Network
