One of the most famous country singers ever, Dolly Parton is a pretty recognizable face. Well, perhaps that’s not entirely true : she entered a Dolly Parton look-alike contest in Santa Monica and… lost. During one of her appearances on the Oprah show the singer shared that back then it was really popular for drag queens to dress up like her of like Cher. So she decided to enter the contest just for fun and showed up with even bigger hair, bigger beauty mark and an overall exaggerated appearance.
Dolly looked absolutely tiny and almost invisible with her 5 feet among the 6-feet-tall drag queens who looked even taller in heels. Dolly said she felt the jury didn’t take her seriously at all so she ended up in second place. However, she stated it was really hilarious once she revealed who she actually was.
