* Gay men who aren't drag queens also have pageants, with similar categories as the ladies (though the swimwear portion is usually replaced with underwear). Fetish subcultures like [[{{Leatherman}} leather]] and rubber also have annual contests, though calling them "pageants" is an ill-fit given the ManlyGay men involved. While these competitions are predominantly held in Western nations, every year a few brave souls from Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean enter as well, often risking family shame and/or their own safety when they do so.

** And guess what country won the crown? That's right, the Philippines! It's for reasons like this--other things include the Catholic majority and the Spanish-influenced culture--that the Philippines has a reputation for feeling like a Latin American country that just happens to be located in East Asia.

* There's a magical beauty contest in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'' which Jake has to escort a contestant to the event as well as investigate it. [[spoiler: It was set up by an evil wizard who would find the most beautiful woman in existence as part of a spell for ultimate magic.]] When the original contestant can't compete, Fu Dog enters instead [[spoiler: and wins the event, screwing up the villain's scheme.]]

* '''[[UpToEleven Extremely]]''' SeriousBusiness in the Philippines, probably because the country excels at few other things (save perhaps for boxing and singing). Filipino popular history is full of successful winners and runners-up of innumerable such contests—not a year goes by without someone at least partly Filipina making the news in an international beauty pageant—and contestants are often treated like goddesses at home, almost ''[[Literature/TheHungerGames Hunger Games]]''-style. The tradition is most likely traceable back to U.S. colonial rule, combined with the Spanish-influenced love for quasi-religious town fiestas, and is perfectly reasonable given Filipinos' [[ForeignCultureFetish colonial]] [[CulturalCringe mentality]].

* The ''other'' notable beauty contest from the Attitude Era was the Miss Rumble contest at the 2000 ''Royal Rumble'' - featuring celebrity guests as judges. After lots of {{Fanservice}} - including The Kat showing off a bikini made of bubble wrap - Mae Young predictably interrupted and [[FanDisservice bared her breasts]] (which had prosthetics on them to make them even more repulsive) - and was declared the winner. Note that Mae Young was in her seventies at the time.

* On ''Series/RupaulsDragRace'', the DragQueen pageant Miss Gay America (itself not connected to the show in any way and predates it by decades) was a source of drama in Season 5. Alyssa Edwards had won the pageant but was dethroned for failing to fulfill her obligations, and the crown went to runner-up Coco Montrese. Since both queens were contestants that season, their rivalry became a driving conflict. Besides them, several others from the show have competed in pageants as well, and "Pageant Queens vs Comedy Queens" has become shorthand for the frequent rivalry between high-femme queens who are serious about fashion and performance (whether they compete in pageants or not) and low-brow queens who are more about comedy, camp, gothiness, and so on (even though there ''are'' pageants for comedy and goth queens).
