Meet Mr Ugly South Africa 2016
A Mr Ugly competition would be the stuff of nightmares for folks obsessed with the world’s idea of beauty, but South Africa has joined the list of countries like Zimbabwe who appreciate and celebrate people of different sizes and looks.
According to Timeslive, the groundbreaking competition was held on September 3 in Mtubatuba, KwaZulu-Natal, at the Bit by Bit nightclub. In all, 9 men participated in the competition, battling for the grand prize of R1,000.
Simon Mpuyazi emerged winner of the maiden edition of this competition.
Explaining why the pageant was organised, owner of the Bit by Bit nightclub, David Ntshangase said it was “for those who feel that they are ugly, to go away from the competition feeling that they too are worthy of celebration and recognition.”
“Ugly and fat people are among the most discriminated against people. You always get beautiful people competing and no one gives ugly people a chance to showcase themselves. Every human was crafted with the same hand of creation”, Ntshangase said, adding that he had never considered himself handsome.
Judging the competition were three men which include the country’s media personality, Joe Mafela.
