Should be #1 because I thought it was young Boy George. The winner must’ve been Boy George himself. She did an exceptional job with the makeup and outfit. Wow.

I thought I remembered hearing a story once that he did enter a look-alike contest and came, like, 7th or something. Tried to look it up now but I guess I remembered wrong since I can’t find anything.

Fish, you are correct, the band got loaded one night after their second album release party, went to a London club hosting the Boy George Look A Like contest. George likely would have been at least a finalist but was so intoxicated he could barely stand, much less do his own signature dance moves. You are also correct regarding 7th place, where there were apparently eight contestants in the show. The story still circulates worldwide, he's mentioned it in a few interviews, laughs it off.

Who came first?

Some guy who could apparently also do some signature Boy George twirl or something.

to be fair, at that time (I was alive then) if you had two contestants who both closely resembled boy george, and one of the contenstants was a boy, that contestant was going to win. Boy George was really the first time that you had a crossdresser hit that level of popularity so to ignore the crossdressing aspect in a look alike contest was not likely to happen. But tell mom she crushed it.

That makes total sense! I’ll relay that to my mother because it’s been about 37-38 years and she still talks about her disappointment for losing. 😆

I don’t like being called strange but you’re totally welcome.

The real irony? Turns out my dad was a real ugly young woman.

I came here for the Karma Chameleon thread and was very disappointed.

She probably didn't have anywhere near enough the overwhelming quality of arsehole that BG exudes.
