Camel Beauty Contest Marred By Botox Claims

In even more proof that we can’t have nice things, a camel beauty contest being held in Dubai has been marred by allegations that breeders had injected their camel’s heads and with Botox to make them bigger.

Take a minute and re-read that sentence. We’ll wait.

Okay, so, sure, people cheat at contests, but injecting your camel with Botox? Not cool. More than 40 camels were disqualified by judges. The contest, which boasts $66 million in prize money… oh… so that’s why they cheat… The contest forbids Botox, face lifts or other cosmetic alterations to improve a camel’s looks.

The contest is part of the annual King Abdulaziz Camel Festival, which runs for a month. This year found judges using advanced devices to see if any breeders were cheating and… yeah, they were. According to the AP, “authorities discovered dozens of breeders had stretched out the lips and noses of camels, used hormones to boost the beasts’ muscles, injected camels’ heads and lips with Botox to make them bigger, inflated body parts with rubber bands and used fillers to relax their faces.”

Other events at the celebration include camel races, sales and other things designed to celebrate the dromedaries. Hopefully these crackdowns will result in a naturally beautiful winner, who will no doubt be disqualified a few months from now when we learn that they had posed for Playboy.
