This Icelandic Beauty Contestant Was Asked to Lose Weight. Here’s What She Told Them


Beauty Pageant Miss Iceland

“Stop eating breakfast, eat just salad for lunch and drink water every evening until the contest. [Itsaragrisil] is telling you this because he likes you and wants you to do well in this contest.”

This was the message Arna Ýr Jónsdóttir, an Icelandic contestant in the major Miss Grand International pageant, received from pageant founder and Thai TV presenter, Nawat Itsaragrisil.

Wait, Does He Need Glasses?

Thankfully she told them to go take their advice and stick it where the sun don’t shine. As She told the Iceland Monitor,

If the owner of the contest really wants me to lose weight and doesn’t like me the way I am, then he doesn’t deserve to have me in the Top 10.

Yes, my shoulders are a bit broader than the other girls’ but that is because I was a member of the Icelandic national athletics team and I am proud of that.

Of course, I don’t take these comments to heart, but to do my best then hear this… Personally, I think I’m fine as I am.

Does this girl look fat to you?

Obviously she quit the pageant.  Take a look at our favorite pictures of the Icelandic stunner on the next page and let us know if you think the organizer was right to ask her to trim down.
