Miss Fat and Beautiful may be one of the most literally named beauty pageants ever. Every year in Beersheva, Israel, a new queen is crowned. The only requirements to win are a weight of over 176lbs.
While I don’t agree too much with the name, I do love the idea behind Miss Fat and Beautiful. Modeling agent Esterica Nagid organized the first pageant fifteen years ago amidst much resistance. Over time, the pageant has become a hit, with women all over the country traveling to Beersheva to compete. Take that, Miss America!
