The 2019 National Beard Competition was held earlier this month, with contestants showcasing their beards in more than 50 categories, including best eight-word hu, best free-to-play eight-word hu, and best Dali eight-word hu (inspired by Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali),media reported. There are also many types of beards and local beards, such as goat hu, horn hu, Fu Manchuriahu, musketeer Hu and so on.
By the way, it’s not just men but women who compete. MJ Johnson, the competition’s judge and organiser, said: “Female contestants compete in the handmade beard category, which allows contestants to make beards to their liking. “
There is actually an exhibition category for the november 8 and 9 games in Chicago. Johnson says these fights are more about fun or for people who don’t want to play against some heavyweights in Saturday’s big fights. The beards in the exhibition category include beer beards and veteran beards.
For those with fast facial hair, contestants will need to shave their beards in the morning and judge the amount of beards they grow before 5 p.m.
