10 World's Most Bizarre & Weirdest Beauty Contests

Here are Top 10 World's Most Bizarre & Weirdest Beauty Contests :

1. Miss Exotic World

The Miss Exotic World Pageant is an annual burlesque pageant and convention held in Las Vegas, and is the annual showcase event (and fundraiser for) the Burlesque Hall of Fame. The pageant attracts former burlesque queens from past decades, as well as current participants of the neo-burlesque scene. The pageant consists of burlesque performances spanning a weekend, culminating with the competition to crown a single performer as Miss Exotic World. Because of the significance of the Exotic World Burlesque Museum to the burlesque community, winning the pageant is considered a top honor for a burlesque performer. 

2. Miss Pregnant

Just because your belly is expanding doesn't mean you can't enter a beauty contest. No more hiding behind tent-like dresses for pregnant women of the twenty-first century, Ms. Pregnant celebrates beauty with a bump. And yes, they parade in bikinis!

3. Miss Landmine

The millions of landmines planted in Angola during the bloody civil war inspired a competition for injured women. Created by Norwegian artist Morten Traavik, Miss Landmine celebrates pride and empowerment over physical perfection. In this beauty contest 10 women competed for the title of most beautiful mutilated Angolan woman. The first prize? A leg prosthesis. 

4. Miss Jumbo Queen

Thailand hosts the Miss Jumbo Queen pageant for big beautiful women. This wobbly annual event is staged at the Samphran Elephant Ground near Bangkok, as part of the Jumbo Banquet elephant feast. The contest is held to select the contestant who best exhibits the characteristics of an elephant by virtue of her grace, elegance and size, and the winner will lead a jumbo banquet and help promote elephant conservation causes in Thailand.

5. Miss and Mister Beautiful Bottom

The Most Beautiful Bottom in the World contest was launched in 2007 by the underwear manufacturer Sloggi. Open to both men and women, the winner for each category gets a modeling contract

6. Ms Senior Sweetheart

Ms Senior Sweetheart is a national pageant for lovely ladies over age 58 and is held every year in Fall River, Massachusetts. Intended to show the public that senior ladies still have lots of pep in their step, contestants compete in talent, interviews, and an evening gown presentation. The pageant was started in 1978 as a Lions’ Club fund raiser and has been a national competition ever since. 

7. Miss Artificial Beauty

After a Chinese girl was banned from a beauty competition for having some surgery work done, a group of people decide to create a very unusual contest in 2004, with one requirement only: they must have a plastic surgery. The contestants competed for the title of Miss Artificial Beauty, with finalists ranging in age from 18 to 62. All competitors --including one transsexual-- had to provide a doctor's certificate to prove they’d been under the knife. It was a one-time-only event.

8. Miss Navajo Nation

Obviously, the contestants of Miss Navajo Nation are members of the Native American Navajo Nation, but the interesting part is the Tribal Skills area, where the contestants demonstrate their skill in essential tribal skills such as butchering sheep. The contestants must butcher a sheep and are judged on their neatness and efficiency. They do it wearing pageant-wear (dresses or tribal garb), with butcher’s smocks over the top.

9. Miss Russian Army

What could the Russian Army do to get good publicity and to recruit more man? The Russian Defense Ministry decided to throw a beauty contest. So in June 2005, nineteen female soldiers and sailors participated in the competition (entitled Beauties in Shoulder Straps), which was broadcast on live television. The event included the soldiers walking down the catwalk in uniform and singing songs while accompanied by guitarists (a memorable lyric included the phrases, "Since we're soldiers, our first concern is automatic weapons; boys come second"). Other events, shown on film, saw the contestants competing in drills, crawling in combat uniform, entering tanks, and running with automatic weapons. The jury ultimately gave the title to Lieutenant Ksenya Agarkova, an engineer with Russia's Northern Fleet. Unfortunately, Bikinis were not allowed. 

10. Miss Klingon Empire

The Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant, held every year at the Star Trek Convention at Dragon*Con in Atlanta, aims to discover beauties who are out of this world. The pageant's definition of beauty might seem weird to most of us - these ladies get glammed up to assume the persona of any female Klingon character, official or created, from "Star Trek." The pageant features the most beautiful women the Klingon Empire has to offer, to be judged in Beauty, Talent and Personality categories.

Amazing !!! The Oldest Human Brain Discovered in UK

Amazing !!! The Oldest Human Brain Discovered in UK by the scientists. They were surprised when found it for the first time. Archaeologists have found the remains of what could be Britain's oldest surviving human brain.

The team, excavating a York University site, discovered a skull containing a yellow substance which scans showed to be shrunken, but brain-shaped. Brains consist of fatty tissue which microbes in the soil would absorb, so neurologists believe the find could be some kind of fossilised brain. The skull was found in an area first farmed more than 2,000 years ago. More tests will now be done to establish what it is actually made of. The team from York Archaeological Trust had been commissioned by the university to carry out an exploratory dig at Heslington East, where campus extension work is under way. The skull was discovered in an area of extensive prehistoric farming landscape of fields, trackways and buildings dating back to at least 300 BC. 

The archaeologists believe the skull, which was found on its own in a muddy pit, may have been a ritual offering. It was taken to the University of York where CT scans were used to look at the skull's contents. Philip Duffey, the consultant neurologist who carried out the scans, said the find was "amazing". 
"It's exciting that scanning has shown structures which appear to be unequivocally of brain origin. "I think that it will be very important to establish how these structures have survived, whether there are traces of biological material within them and, if not, what is their composition." 
He added: "This could be the equivalent of a fossil. The brain itself would generally not survive. Fatty tissues would be feasted on by microbes. 
"This isn't like the remains found in bogs; it doesn't have any skin on the skull or any tissue remains elsewhere. 
"There is something unusual in the way the brain has been treated, or something that it's been exposed to that has preserved the shape of it." 

Dr Sonia O'Connor, research fellow in archaeological sciences at the University of Bradford added: "The survival of brain remains where no other soft tissues are preserved is extremely rare.
"This brain is particularly exciting because it is very well preserved, even though it is the oldest recorded find of this type in the UK, and one of the earliest worldwide."
The find is the second major discovery during investigations at the site.
Earlier this year, a team from the university's department of archaeology unearthed a shallow grave containing the skeleton of a man believed to be one of Britain's earliest victims of tuberculosis.
Radiocarbon dating suggests that the man died in the fourth century, the late-Roman period.
The vice-chancellor of the University of York, Professor Brian Cantor, said: "The skull is another stunning discovery and its further study will provide us with incomparable insights into life in the Iron Age."
Specialists now hope to carry out further tests on the skull to establish how it has survived for so long, and perhaps more about the person whose brain it was.

2. Hugh Hefner Sky Villa, Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas

Nightly Rate: $40.000

 If anyone knows how to vacation in Las Vegas, that will be Hugh Hefner. Even though he is known as a homebody he has spent a few nights away from the mansion at the Sky Villa. The suite itself was built to model the original playboy mansion; it also incorporates elements derived from a vintage Playboy magazine article about the ultimate bachelor pad. The suite cost roughly $10 million to build but the high-rollers can rent it for a small $40,000 a night. Everything screams S-E-X-Y at the Sky Villa.
