Entering a beauty contest requires the full package — you should have the body, the brains, and the personality.

However, in China, officials of a beauty pageant went a little too far regarding body measurements.

Normally, the chest, waist, and hips are measured. In this particular contest, the distance between nipples was included among the criteria!

Yes, if the nipples are not at least 20 centimeters apart, then the contestant is out.

This sparked a lot of buzz on the Internet, especially on Weibo, China’s Twitter.

“Why more than 20 centimeters? I honestly don’t know who came up with these figures,” one Weibo user posted.

“These beauty contests are absurd,” another user added. “On what basis do these so-called judges use their own standards to measure beauty?”

Even local TV personalities had something to say about it.

Yang Lan wrote on her microblog, “How can beauty standards include breast distance? Do they take women as toys? Judging women by such rigid criteria is so out!”

In addition, beauty contest officials required a certain distance between contestants’ pupils: 46% of the distance between one’s pupil and her ear.
