The 14th annual iteration of this downtown contest includes a one-minute talent competition, as well as swimsuit and evening-wear segments. To give an idea of the tone, note that the winner of the dubious honor receives a slice of pizza from LES staple Rosario’s, a six-pack of Budweiser and a crown with a detachable bong. All women or gay men in attendance can cast a vote for their favorite. Those interested in participating, for whom admission is waived, should e-mail revjen@revjen.com for details.
