Though some of the crowd at Zimbabwe’s annual Mr Ugly contest have complained that the winner was not ugly enough.
The runner-up and his supporters said Mison Sere’s ugliness wasn’t natural since it was based on missing teeth.
Mr Sere won $500 ($330) and plans to start a TV career. The organiser David Machowa told the BBC’s Steve Vickers that models make money from their looks, so ugly people should have the same opportunity.
Runner-up William Masvinu has won every previous year of the competition. He took home $100 this year.
