the most pointless beauty contest ever

Go back to

link to story (May 6, 2009)

First the the Arab world ditched Barbie for
Fulla, a more modest Muslim doll with a little pink prayer mat (see link) and now Saudi Arabia is messing with beauty contest.

I have never been a fan of beauty contest, but this one is particularly strange. The winner of the "Miss Beautiful Morals" contestant is the woman who shows the most devotion and respect for her parents. Looks don't matter. You can also forget about wanting world peace, working with children or any of that other stuff. If you want to win this one, you have to respect mom and dad, especially mom. I suppose Saudi Arabia's lack of experience with beauty contest might explain the odd criteria for winning.

From the story linked at the top of the page.
There are few beauty pageants in the largely conservative Arab world. The most dazzling is in Lebanon, the region's most liberal country, where contestants appear on TV in one-piece swimsuits and glamorous evening gowns and answer questions that test their confidence and general knowledge.

There are no such displays in ultra-strict Saudi Arabia, where until Miss Beautiful Morals was inaugurated last year, the only pageants were for goats, sheep, camels and other animals, aimed at encouraging livestock breeding.
