But Where's Bert Parks?

All the brouhaha back home about Carrie Prejean, Miss California USA and highly unlikely pundit, has turned my wandering mind to things that really matter: beauty pageants. When they involve men, do they become handsomeness pageants? Somehow, no.

In any case, our fun fact of the day: did you know that our own dear Mr. John Abraham is in fact himself a pageant survivor? Yes, indeed; before he ascended the steep and slippery staircase to Bollywood stardom, he achieved early notoriety by nabbing the coveted titled of Mr. Gladrags Manhunt* 1999.

He even traveled to Singapore to compete - as seen on the catwalk here - in Mr. Manhunt International. Sadly, he was robbed, and only got first runner up. He lost to Mr. Venezuela...

...one Ernesto Calzadilla, who, it must be said, makes a pretty convincing case for himself.

*Amazing drag name alert!
