Who knew that there was actually a beauty pageant for incarcerated women??
Unlike your typical beauty pageants, the contestants in this pageant are competing for the title of “Miss Max” and they are all currently serving long sentences for crimes like drug trafficking, kidnapping, and even homicide at the Penitenciaria Feminina da Capital in Sao Paolo—South America’s largest all-female maximum security prison. They may all be judged using the standard pageant criteria such as beauty, poise, and talent but there’s an extra judging criterion – their record of good behavior.
