  • Description

    A beauty contest with a difference was staged in Bangkok on Thursday (20 September).

    Forty Thai girls competed for the title of "Miss Sexy". The contest was organised by a Singapore agent who finds jobs for Thai girls all over the world as striptease dancers and bar hostesses.

    According to the agent, the top jobs are in Europe; others are guaranteed throughout Asia. Salaries range from U.S. 300-dollars to U.S. 500-dollars a month. The working "day" for these girls begins at eight o'clock at night. They're given free dancing lessons before being sent abroad.

    The title of "Miss Sexy" was won by Miss Kanica Kauvilai, measurements 35-23-36. The five finalists have all been offered roles in Thai movies.

    Needless to say the contest proved a popular event -- the theatre was booked out throughout the contest. Not so surprisingly the seats were sold entirely to men.
