Mr Universe

Mr. Universe is a kind of beauty contest, but much less publicized than its sister contest, Miss Universe. The rules are similar and the process similar to that of Miss Universe, but at Mr. Universe, there is less emphasis on beauty and facial attractiveness and instead the judging is based on the sheer muscularity of the contestants. A beauty contest, or beauty pageant, is a competition between people, based largely, though not always entirely, on the beauty of their physical appearance. ... The Miss Universe beauty contest has been held since 1952 (not to be confused with the similar Miss World). ...
