After coming through to the finale of the Miss Virtual Kazakhstan pageant، a contestant confessed that he was not actually a woman، Sputnik reported.
Twenty-two year old Ilay Dyagilev had reportedly submitted his pictures as a woman، who he called “Arina Alieva،” to take part in the beauty contest. When the guy reached the final stretch، he made the decision to confess that he was a man. Following his announcement، his female “alter-ego” was disqualified and replaced with another participant.
“I came through to the finale and decided to expose the identity of Arina Alieva when I realized it had gone too far. At the very beginning there were around 4،000 applications from across Kazakhstan، but I got to the final،” he said. He explained that he was an advocate of natural beauty، which many women nowadays show a lack of: “My friends and I، we had a debate on beauty، and I decided to take part in the pageant. I’ve always been a champion of natural beauty. You can see that many young women look identically، the same make-up، the same style، and they believe that they are beautiful if they follow trends. I don’t think so.”
