Miss Jail Prison Pageant [Video]
From the "you've got to be kidding me" files, there is really a pageant for women in jail. It's not in every prison. Imagine, you could be a convicted murderer and then land the esteemed title of "Miss Jail," an award doled out by the Racife, Brazil women's prison. I'm not sure this would be something to be proud of, especially if you committed a real horrible crime.
The yearly contest is based on beauty, knowledge and good cell behavior and can only be won by femmes behind bars. I wonder if cell behavior also means good cell etiquette? Who judges these things?
Twelve competed in this year's pageant and the crowned winner was 19-year-old convicted murderer Rebecca Rhaysa Suelen Guedsin. She told the press, "It's flattering that people think I am pretty." I want to be the announcer for this.
Other women's prisons to hold a beauty pageant for inmates are in Rio de Janeiro, Russia, Columbia, Lithuania and Siberia, as well. Maybe a growing trend?

If we could see this on television, would you watch it?
