Dozens of Camels Kicked out of Saudi Beauty Pageant for Using Botox

There's no swimsuit component at this beauty pageant, but contestants are expected to be perfect specimens of physical beauty (sorry, but inner beauty doesn't count). Every year, Saudi Arabia holds the King Abdulaziz Camel Festival in Riyadh. This is the world's most prestigious beauty pageant for camels. Now, tragically, this contest has been wracked with scandal.

The Associated Press reports that pageant authorities have expelled more than 40 participants due to artificial enhancements, including hormones to increase muscle mass, botox to increase lip volume, and fillers to shape the camels' faces into relaxed expressions. These camels will be unable to compete and secure the $66 million in prize money.

Camel owners have resorted to botox, artificial stretching of the jawline and lips, hump reconstruction, etc. With 66 million in prize money it should be no surprise such procedures have occurred. Wouldn't you tweak your camel to win a bundle?
