    Default Italy's 375-Pound “Miss Chubby” Beauty Pageant Winner

    Forget those pencil-thin model types. Italy has chosen a full-figured woman as new beauty queen, proud of her ample body weighing in at a hefty 170 kilograms.
    Angela Scognamiglio said she was "very moved" when she was named on Saturday night as the new "Miss Chubby" at the complex-free contest held in the Tuscany village of Forcoli, near the city of Pisa.
    "I am very moved, I feel as if I've won the lottery," the 33-year-old from Naples said after beating out 30 other contestants for the title.

    As in all past 20 editions of the pageant, there is only one condition for entry: you have to weigh more than 100 kilograms.
    Contestants paraded before an audience of 2500 at a local hotel on Saturday night, wearing gowns, or for those who cared to show more, undergarments. Some even dared a little glamour striptease.
    But the crucial moment in the contest was the weigh-in, stepping onto a huge red scale where everyone could see the result - with the roundest beauty clinching the title.
    No big prize for the winner, just a huge cake to share around, and perhaps for all the contestants a boost in self-esteem in contrast to the mockery many obese face.
    "When we get on a bus, people nudge each other, and whisper, making fun of us, and it's the same on the beach," said redheaded Marilena Amato.
    "We are the victims of severe discrimination, it's as if we are second class citizens," said another contestant, Antonia Bartolo, a 37-year-old nurse from the Milan region.

    The contest is also about "entertainment, a chance to get to know people who face the same problems I do", she added.
    The contest's founder, Gianfranco Lazzereschi, says the event showcases other types of beauty in women.
    "It is a showcase for full figures," he said, flanked by two contestants, "Why can't these two women show off? Why is it necessary to follow the dictates of what's beautiful?"
    The full-figure pageant, says the founder, is a way to send a different message about beauty.

    What is that? Like 220 lbs? Even that is way past what I would consider chubby, nevermind 375 lbs.

    Boo to those picking on her, I think this is sweet. A beautiful woman is a beautiful woman, regardless of her size.
    Say what you will about matters of health, but I think some people are naturally thin, and some are naturally larger. And if someone has gotten really big, like the winner of this pageant, then she might be healthier losing weight, sure, but that doesn't mean that she's not beautiful.

    To quote the guy from the pageant: "Why can't these two women show off? Why is it necessary to follow the dictates of what's beautiful?"

    She's very pretty, though I think she might be lying about her weight. Perhaps she's just really short.

    I truthfully don't think she'd be beautiful if she dropped 240 pounds. She's got great hair, but I don't think she's remotely pretty, regardless of weight. (shrug)
