You know those “Ugly Naked Dogs”? The ones that look like they have some sort of weird skin condition?
You know, these ones??
You don’t even know who to root for.
Are you supposed to root for a winner? Isn’t that a little mean? These dogs are…awful looking and adorable, all at the same time. I bet the last thing they need is even more damage to their fragile psyche’s as we mock them for our own (very good looking) entertainment. As you watch the competitors you’ll learn there is so much more to the World’s Ugliest Dog than bad hair and wretched teeth.
This thing is political y’all.
On the outside, it’s the world most backward dog show, but inside? This so called “casual competition” has rules, regulations and stuff. The dogs have to undergo wellness check, as only healthy ugly dogs get to compete. Competitors disagree about who is uglier: the dogs that were born ugly, the dogs who have grown ugly with age or those who were made ugly through accidents. They question the judging integrity (How much integrity can a “vote by clapping” really have?). That’s what interested me the most about worst in show – the behind the scenes relationships and rivalries. People are crazy and awesomely unique.
