Tired of looking at ugly people on dating sites? Think you deserve better? So did Jason Pellegrino. Being far too handsome for conventional sites, he decided to start one purely for the beautiful people, such as himself.
It's called hotenough.com and is a sort of online version of Studio 54, the exclusive '70s disco where gaining admission was determined by how well you had done in the genetic lottery.
As Jason says in his introduction, "Attractive, fit singles like you deserve an above average dating pool and the leading online dating sites just don’t meet that standard."
Those who yearn to mingle with the beautiful people on HotEnough must submit three pictures. One must be a full-length shot to rule out undercover fatties. "There are some girls out there who have a real pretty face but may be on the heavy side. Unfortunately, that's not what we're going for," Pellegrino said.
Jason himself rates an 8.2, although one unkind commentator had this to say after finding a photo of the HotEnough founder online:
"Note the dopey smile, receding hairline, shiny forehead and Jay Leno chin on our magnate of hotness. (Not to mention the over-gelled hair, complete absence of neck and dorky pairing of black blazer and red t-shirt).
Maybe he was just bitter about not being hot enough.
