We’re all used beauty pageants. From your local high school pageants, to the Miss Worlds and Miss Universes, celebrating beauty, and those who are beautiful, is something that has been all around us from ever since.
Zimbabwe decided to shake things up a bit.
The Mr. Ugly pageant was created in 2012 by David Machowa to celebrate “beauty in ugliness”.
Winners are given prize money as well as the prestigious title of being the ugliest person in the country.
Machowa has plans to one day launch a Mr. Ugly World.
