Celebrate singularity at this unusual beauty contest. Producer Jo Firestone calls it a showcase of “warmhearted oddballs,” in which a dozen contestants (including performance artist Lorelei Ramirez) will take part in a talent show and strut in homemade swimsuits in which judges encourage will hopefuls to "freak flags fly." At the first contest in 2012 “talent” included eating an entire jar of jalapeños, and one hopeful sported a hot-dog-and-beer-can bathing suit. Expect similar ingenuity in this edition, where the audience will vote for the winner by ballot, to avoid any bruised feelings.
