A Peek Inside the Plastic Surgery Beauty Pageant

I'd heard about the Hungarian Miss Plastic Hungary beauty contest a few months ago, but now there's footage of this unprecedented event. The contestants, all of whom have gone under the knife and are oddly dressed like Leeloo from The Fifth Element, competed for prizes including a car and an apartment. (In case you're wondering, no, cosmetic procedures such as Botox didn't count — only surgery such as rhinoplasty did.)

I find this concept odd, but then again, I have always found beauty pageants unsettling. At the same time, there's something refreshing about this one's frank acknowledgment of the nips and tucks. After all, in traditional beauty pageants, many contestants have had some surgical tweaking, but that's not disclosed. At least this Hungarian pageant says, "Nope, nothing fully natural here." Do you think that's a better way to go about pageantry, or do you find the whole thing bizarre in the first place?
