In today’s dose of whacky news, a man disguised himself as a woman and beat 4000 contestants to enter the final of a female beauty pageant!
Yes, that reportedly happened.
Illay Dyagilev, a 22-year-old male model, reached the final of Miss Virtual Kazakhstan, an online competition, posing as Arina Aliyeva, after his photo garnered over 2,000 votes.
According to reports, he also went on to win the title of ‘Miss Virtual Shymkent’, capital of the south Kazakhstan region. Illay, however, was stripped of the title. It was then passed on to Aikerim Temirkhanova, who received 1,975 votes.
Illay Dyagilev, who fooled the beauty pageant organisers and judges, allegedly admitted he was a man two days after entering the final.
Illay claims he has ben in the fashion business since he was 17 years old and hence it was easy for him to transform into a female model.

Yes, they are the same two people! The wonders art, skill and make-up can do!
