True enthusiasts of Chinese culture may be facing an unpleasant surprise: bikini-clad girls performing traditional Chinese opera in a beauty contest.

“In the Chinese final of the 36th Miss Bikini International Pageant last year, the girls wore hand-embroidered bikinis and headwear with distinct elements of Chinese operas, and they performed to the accompaniment of Chinese opera music,” said Li Yulong, the executive president of the organizing committee of the Miss Bikini International Pageant. This year, the girls reprised their shocking performance at the press preview for the 37th contest to take place later this year.
