Your jaws will drop at these beauty pageant contestants... when you realise they were born men

If you looked at the contestants of this year's Miss Tiffany's Universe beauty pageant, you might not realise that they were all born men.

Today (Aug 24), the annual contest held in Pattaya, Thailand, held the preliminary round where the candidates strut their stuff in bikinis and gowns.

Miss Tiffany's Universe features Thai transgender women aged between 18 to 25 who may or may not have gone through sex reassignment surgery.

It would not be a stretch to say that several of the contestants this year are more beautiful than even real women.
