In the just concluded plus size annual beauty pageant in Thailand, some of the countries finest plus ladies came out in their numbers to compete for the crown. The theme of the pageantry was ‘Thi Da Change’ which means The Daughter of an Elephant. It was chosen in honour of the endangered Elephant specie that was once a highly esteemed creature in Thailand but now undervalued and in danger of become extinct.
The ‘Jumbo Queen’ Beauty Pageantry was aimed at the conservation of Elephants. Part of the criteria for winning was a display of dance talent, but the contestants were judged mostly by their weight, so the bigger they were the more chances they had of winning. The least weight for contestant to have was nothing less than 80kg. The contestants were also judged on how well they could exhibit the qualities of an elephant which includes strength, grace as well as being thick and beautiful of course.
The crowned queen of the Miss Jumbo beauty pageant was Kwanrapee Boonchaisuk, who weighs 104.77kg , she will spend her winning year touring the country to promote elephant focused charities and conservation work. Watch this short video from the pageantry.
