A source close to the situation explained:
Miss Venezuela Hopefuls Are Going To All Sorts Of Crazy Lengths To Win The Crown, Like The One That Is Sewing Plastic To Her Tongue! See It Here!
This is crazy and extreme and actually really disgusting!
The BBC aired a CRAZY documentary titled Extreme Beauty Queens: Secrets of South America and it's pretty disturbing to say the least.
The first in a three-part series details the EXTREME measures girls go to in order to make themselves perfect for the pageants and how the whole process is overseen by the country's "King of Beauty", 67 year-old Osmel Sousa.
Sousa judges the women based on their appearances and is incredibly harsh in every way, telling them to get surgery, fix hair, and even telling one girl to have her front teeth filed down even more.
One 18 year-old contestant, Maya Nera, has revealed that not only did she get a boob job AND a nose job to try and win the crown, but she has also has a piece of plastic SEWN to her tongue to make it harder to eat food.
Yes, you read that correctly. It's PLASTIC that is SEWN to her tongue.
"It makes me lose weight faster. You eat the same [things] but liquefied."
This whole process is both extremely sad and incredibly disgusting! UGH!
We don't care if this dude is the King of the Universe, he should NOT be telling any of these girls to "improve" their bodies!
Just LOOK at them (below). They're all beautiful just as they are.
UGH! So sad.
