Mr. Ugly 2012 crowned in Zimbabwe: "I know that I am very ugly"


Mr Ugly 2012- William Masvinu
A few months ago I posted about an unusual pageant in Zimbabwe called Mr Ugly 2012. I never really thought to follow up on the story until this morning when the newly minted ugly winner was featured on US morning show "Waking Up With Al" . 38 year old William Masvinu garned the title of Mr Ugly 2012 and won $100 in cool cash plus one night stay in a Harare hotel. But peep his reason for entering the pageant:

I know that I am very ugly and when I heard of this contest I just said the crown is mine,” said Masvinu. “Being ugly is a gift from God and look what this gift has done to me. I am on my way to fame and I now have a few dollars in my pocket. My wife was here in full support and I am really happy.”

I cant take it! I CANNOT TAKE IT! Oh but it gets better! 

Match made in heaven- William and his wife

William's wife was also on-hand for ceremony and this is what she had to say about her husband's victorious win " I know that my husband is very ugly and that is why I supported his participation in this contest,” she said. Because of his ugliness, I am confident I have been able to keep him to myself since I believe other women would shun him.”

Organizers plan on expanding the pageant and having a Mr Ugly Zimbabwe and a Miss Ugly Harare pageant. WOW! I am speechless.
