Apparently Brazil has the best acceptance rate for men and Sweden has the best acceptance rate for women. Just 24 per cent of American men have been accepted and 37 per cent of US women. “Existing members of the website rate how attractive potential members are over a 48 hour provisional period, when applicants upload a recent photograph and a short personal profile.

The UK, Russia and Poland scored worst for men; while China, the UK and Germany scored worst for women.
