HARARE: The man who reigns as Zimbabwe’s Mister Ugly has tough competition in this year’s pageant, with organisers receiving a record number of entries for this beauty contest with a twist.

For the first time since the competition began in 2011, organisers will hold preliminary rounds to whittle the number of hopefuls from 36 to 12 who will compete in the Nov. 20 finale, said pageant organiser David Machowa.

“We are looking for natural ugliness,” Machowa said. Facial features count the most, but contestants will also be judged according to their confidence when walking the runway and how they handle the question-and-answer round of the pageant.

“People have always seen ugliness as something to be ashamed of,” said Machowa.
