Just as I said, 98% of the population is capable of being above average in his eyes (okay, except for the physically deformed). It's a very generous point of view. In my opinion, most physically ugly people can't be "fixed" by a diet and a haircut.

Anyway, maybe my standards just aren't as high as the OP but I certainly wouldn't consider the vast majority of the population (65%) to be "undesirables". Nowhere near it. Here's how I would put it:

20% undesirable
50% average
20% above average
10% beautiful

It may be possible to shift one category (e.g. go from undesirable to average, or average to above average) but more than that is highly unlikely. There's only so much make-up and weight loss can do.

I think they can be fixed but being handsome is something.

Your point of view is more pessimistic than OP's.

He sounds pretty shallow, and I don't agree with his race-based hierarchy of beauty. East African/Caribbean/Brazilian and even American women are easily the most attractive, in my book.

I'm a happy pessimist. Or a realist. There's just no escaping that bell curve.

The guy is kinda right; many people look ugly. But he's biased towards white women because there are lots of pretty asian women out there too.
