What is surprising is that Sere was once beaten by Masvinu two years ago, prompting an arguable debate on how he has managed to outrun Masvinu in this year's contest as if ugliness is something that can be made while it is a natural born thing. Just from watching the video, one can see that most of the contestants were making drastic efforts to make their ugliness clear except for Masvinu.
