Stand back, beauty queens, there’s a new kind of pageant in town.
In 2018, Mr Ugly Africa beauty pageant will be hosted right here in South Africa and it promises to be a show like no other.
Being beautiful is so last century, these contestants will compete for the title of the ugliest man on the continent.
And Mr Ugly Zimbabwe, Maison Sere, is gunning for the top prize.
Maison will compete against some of the ugliest men on the continent.
Speaking to TshisaLive, pageant organizer, David Machowa said: “The winner must have something that goes beyond looks. A good character is one of the key elements we are looking for”.
The competition first took place in 2009 in a small Zimbabwean town, later going national in 2012.
David even has plans to expand this into a global competition.
“”There is no limit to how many times one can enter or win the contest as long as they are the ugliest dude around,” said David.
