The “Mr. Model Tabasco 2017” is a beauty contest put together for the most handsome men in Mexican state of Tabasco but guess what?
The modelling agency behind the event announced the cancellation because, according to them, the contestants are not handsome enough.
The requirements to be accepted for the Mr. Model Tabasco pageant are: candidates are to have a height of at least 1,78 m, be between 17 and 27 years old, have a “harmonious face and body”, have a college degree or an education equivalent to their age, speak English, have a valid passport, and not be a stripper.
Apparently, these requirements proved to be a big problem, as just a few days before the contest, organizers had only selected 6 candidates. Those didn’t really meet the agency’s beauty standards either, so they ultimately decided to cancel the whole event.
In a statement, the agency said: “The National Organization of Mr. Model Mexico regrets to inform you that the Mr. Model Tabasco 2017 event has been canceled until further notice, due to the candidates not meeting the physical requirements established by the organization.”
The statement added that: “Mr. Model Tabasco will continue to work hard to find the perfect example of masculine beauty in the state.”
