Chinese blogger beauty pageant - girls and blogs

I found this quite amusing:

The convergence of girls and blogs, a kind of Chinese blogger beauty pageant, took place in Beijing this month. Sponsored by China's largest blogsite, Bokee, the girls were judged on number of votes they received online, the quality of their blog posts, blog traffic and blog comments. The top 20 contestants were then brought to Beijing to receive two days of make-overs, photos shoots, and etiquette classes. In the final staged, live competition they were somehow scored on appearance, body and talent.

The overall winner, a student at Beijing University's eMBA program, took home US $2500. I tried to check out their blogs, but the only content I could decipher where the images. Looking forward to more blogger beauty pageants! :)
