Italy has named Angela Scognamiglio as the 'Miss Chubby' Beauty Queen and no thin swimsuit models like the beauty queen hopefuls in the accompanying picture were allowed in this contest. Contestants had to weigh more than 220 pounds (100 kilograms).
AFP muses in a headline that it is a 'chubby revenge' and reveals "Italy has chosen a full-figured woman as new beauty queen, and she weighs 375 pounds."
That is a stout 170 kilograms. Chubby indeed.
Is it enough to make contest fans forget those pencil-thin model types? My Fox Atlanta reports Angela Scognamiglio said she was "very moved" when she was named Saturday night as the new "Miss Chubby."

The contest's founder, Gianfranco Lazzereschi, said the event showcases other types of beauty in women. Angela, the now reigning 33-year-old beauty queen winner from Naples beat 30 other contestants for the title.
