Plastic Surgery Nightmare! 20 Korean Beauty Pageant Contestants Show Up with the Same Face

How do you decide who's the prettiest of them all when they all look the same?

We spent a lot of time this week asking magic mirrors who the fairest of them all was. And like the evil queen, we are totally bummed by what they had to say.

In a move lacking of any imagination, People magazine showed Gwenyth Paltrow as the Most Beautiful Woman in the World this week. Yes, the one and only skinny blonde Gwenyth Paltrow who likes to tell us how inept we all are at being humans compared to her. Boring!

Meanwhile, across the ocean in Korea, 20 contestants showed up to a beauty pageant with almost the same exact face. (Um, more or less awkward than showing up in the same dress?) “Fairest of the Land” in Korea decidedly includes a slender nose, half-moon eyes and heart-shaped faces. And that’s what all these girls thought on the way to the plastic surgeon (or at least makeup counter). It is completely crazypants that their idea of beauty is so narrow, they do not mind the fact that they look like clones of each other. They are now beautiful and that is all that matters.

They are willing to go under the knife to look more Western -- too look more like Gwenyth (or the ideal she represents) -- because we exalt people like her on the cover of magazines time and time again. Without magazines like People and their inane beauty contests, girls would probably be less likely to go under the knife. At least there would be more diversity.

Who knows. Maybe this is the perfect equalizer. Since they all look the same, the winner will be decided on personality, smarts, talent? Or, maybe it'll just be based on who had the best doctor.
