Yeah that’s right China App company Expat Express is holding a competition to find the hottest foreign teacher in China. My friends and I thought this was hilarious. In China when white is always right and anything darker than butter was considered ugly; I just knew what the out come of this contest would be. A beautiful, Blonde hair, porcelain skinned young slim girl would be crowded the winner.
So, to prove my point I entered the competition. I submitted this photo:
Well, to my surprise I got a phone call a couple days ago asking for more information because I had made the top 20 Hottest Foreign Teachers in China!!! I know…. Who would have thought.
So it seems my next step is to send two more photos and a video introducing myself. I almost peed myself after I received that phone call.
I can’t help but think; is this their way of proving that racist commerial was a true misunderstanding? Am I going to be the token Black person that China points at and says “see we like Black people”? Am I up there with the New Miss America, breaking records and making history? Or could it possibly be that I am truly the hottest foreign teacher in China?
Well there are still quite a few days to go before they crown a winner. But I would like to think that just being nominated and put in the list of beautiful people is accomplishment enough…… Nayyyy …..who am I kidding, I want that free trip to Thailand. Wish me luck. I will post the link on here and my Facebook page so everyone can support me.
Until Next Time…..
