My two cents worth probably isn't needed – but here it is anyway. It's the power dynamic going on with this competition that bothers me. The thing that I find most offensive is that it is targeting poor, vulnerable people and basically saying, 'yeah, maybe we'll give you some money, but you have to take your gear off first and then we'll decide'. The idea of women feeling like they should enter a competition like this in the hopes that they will get enough money to get by is really disturbing. And targeting a population who could potentially see is as just one more humiliation that they must endure after so much suffering is just horrible.
The awful jokes that they are making just seem to confirm this power inequality.
