City Sports Bar hosts Mr Ugly contest tonight

The event will see reigning Mr Ugly Harare, Brian Mateyazondo, passing on the crown to a new king of ugliness at the event that promises to be fun-filled.

Mateyazondo was crowned Mr Ugly Harare in June last year at the same venue where he shrugged off stiff competition from four other contestants at an event which saw Tinashe Ngwenya being crowned the first runner up and Jerry Madzivire the second runner up.

In an interview, show organiser David Machowa, popularly known as Apama, confirmed the contest.

“The second edition of the Mr Ugly Harare is back and on Monday (tomorrow) night at the City Sports Bar where we are going to have a new king,” said Apama.

“There are more than 20 contestants and all is in order, what is left is for the event to take place.

“This is a continuation of greater things to come as far as the contest is concerned. We are trying to organise a national event where we will have Mr Ugly Zimbabwe.
“After this Mr Ugly Harare event, we are also going to host the Miss Ugly Harare, which will also lead to national finals,” he said.

The contest, which is supported by the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe, made headlines following its inception in Beitbridge a few years ago.  The unique contest has the potential to become one of the biggest competitions in the country.

All the judges are women, and the contestants will compete in four categories lined along dress codes: casual, smart casual, safari and sports.
