JAMAICA OBSERVER – A 42-year-old unemployed man was crowned Zimbabwe’s ugliest man at a pub pageant in Harare – but the contest turned ugly when the runner-up accused judges of bias.

Maison Sere, who was missing several teeth and dressed in torn overalls, beat off five other contestants for the $500 Mr Ugly prize – a large sum in a country facing massive unemployment.

“I want to thank God for winning this title, last time I came fourth. I just want to thank the judges for recognising me as the winner,” Sere told journalists during a night of festivities Friday attended by 200 revellers.

But William Masvinu, a three-time Mr Ugly winner who walked off with a $100 second prize this year, cried foul.

“The judges were not fair; the organisers must look for new judges to start the contest afresh. I did not lose today,” Masvinu said.

  1. Are you serious .... omg I feel sorry for these people i`d donate the money to you... if you feel you that ugly well i think you need to look inside because God didn`t create ugly ... i refuse to accept that... we are all born with different qualities but we are all beautiful in our own ways.

  4. That's what we as a people our morals have dwindled to? Crowing the ugliest amongst us?
    This is pathetic beyond words. We must do better. Let's spend our time and energy uplifting each other, and focus on more prying matters. High time we stop being the laughing stock of other cultures.
