No true red blooded Arab male can resist those widely flared nostrils, that humped back or pouting, hairy lips. One glance from those sandy, squinting eyes with their foot long lashes is enough to melts hearts and make millions. Because that’s exactly what is at stake here and a lover of hairy, spitting ships of the desert has to beware the camel beauty contest cheats.
With over 30,000 camels on show, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdulaziz Camel Festival is a hot draw for camel lovers throughout the middle-east and beyond. In fact each year over 300,000 visitors come to this camel paradise in the dunes, making it the biggest camel beauty show in the world.
Most people are familiar with the idea of cheating and corruption in the world of sport, whether it’s rigged football games or boxers taking a fall for a handsome payoff. The same probably goes for camel racing. But cheating in a camel beauty contest doesn’t seem possible does it?
Well it may surprise you to learn that cheating in camel beauty contests is very much a concern. And with prize money totalling over $50 million up for grabs you can understand why! We’re not talking about a bit of a shampoo and perm to knock a few miles off an old camel that’s been round the bazaar a couple of times either. This is big business and the trick are serious.
For starters a cheating camel may well have got that muscular look through the use of hormones than honest parenthood. That lovely touch of whispy hair on top of the perfectly placed hump may just be the result of extensive comb-over, hair spray and even camel hump hair extensions. It’s seductively drooping lip may simply be the result of endless hours of pulling with fingers since birth. Those delicate, perky little ears may even have been assisted by a skilful surgeon.
But worst of all is the use of Botox. Yes, it’s not just the preserve of Instagram stars anymore. Camel beauty contest cheats will often resort to Botox to give their animal the ultimate in facial makeover desirability. A droopy lip is essential, but to be perfect it must also be full and fleshy. The same holds true for the nose and jawline, all injected to achieve exactly the correct proportions to encourage you to open your wallet and say “You’re coming home with me…”
Organisers of the festival are desperately trying to clamp down on the cheats before the whole camel beauty business falls into disrepute. But with such vast sums available for “that perfect camel” they are always one step behind the more unscrupulous deals. However, if you fancy trying to hook up with the camel of your dreams, then a holiday in Saudi Arabia taking in the sultry delights of the Camel Festival may be just your thing. But you have been warned. It’s buyer beware in the world of camel beauty pageants!
