MR “SHE” F/TOWN ON THE CARDS
The ramp has been largely known for the tall, slender and elegant girls with the beauty that leaves many men stunned. But the stereotype is being phased away.
Of late, ladies who are fat with bulging bellies have taken the ramp by a storm.
As if the change is not enough, men have been introduced to the ramp.
In a no distant future, pageant enthusiasts will gather to witness men competing for the ultimate MR ‘SHE’ FRANCISTOWN.
According to Borolynko Talent Promotions, the idea of MR ‘SHE’ FRANCISTOWN is to unearth a different kind of talent on the ramp other than that of women.
Muscular men will be in ladies gowns and walk down the ramp. Borolynko Programme Manager Motshidi Thasela said the competition will be held in the near future on a date and venue yet to be confirmed.
