"Ever had plastic surgery to become beautiful? Are you proud of your body? Would you like to put yourself to the test?"
If so, asks this website, perhaps you should enter the Miss Plastic Hungary beauty pageant where women age 18 – 30 (if you’re above 30 you’re in the “dame” category) can compete against other women who have gone under the knife.
In this Bizarro World contest, unlike in other beauty contests, having gone under the knife is not grounds for disqualification — it’s a contest requirement. Botox, by the way, doesn’t count. "The entry requirement," says Reka Bodis, press director of the pageant, "is a surgical procedure done under general or local anesthesia." It's quite “natural,” she continues, to stage such a contest now that so many beautiful women get plastic surgery and prices are more affordable. Hungary is a tourist destination for many in the UK, where plastic surgery prices can be prohibitively expensive.
The contest is open to non-Hungarian contestants as well as Hungarian beauties and debuts October 9.
