Ugly Pageant Winner Accused Of Not Being Ugly Enough To Scoop $500

(Last Updated On: November 23, 2015)

Zimbabwe has got a very.. unique competition dubbed “Mister Ugly.” Well it is sort of a pageant where the ugliest guy gets to scope the title and pocket some cash. 42 year old, Mison Sere,pictured above, was crowned the winner of the 4th annual pageant competition. Sere was chosen by the judges over the previous champion, William Masvinu,who had held the title since 2012,citing his ‘numerous missing front teeth and wide range of grotesque facial expressions.’

The announcement however caused a huge upset with Masvinu and his supporters reportedly mobbing the judges, claiming that Sere was ‘too handsome’ to win and his ugliness was only based on missing teeth. “I am naturally ugly,” said Masvinu. “He is not. He is ugly only when he opens his mouth.”

But Sere was not bothered as he pocketed his $500 as an award. I guess it is not a silly competition after all. Mr Ugly 2015 said;

“They should just accept that I am uglier than them. I hope to get a TV contract. I already moved around schools performing and showcasing my ugliness so this is a chance to make it on TV.”
