The last edition was held in 2015 and 45-year-old unemployed "beast" Maison Sere clinched the crown. He beat three-time winner William Masvinu.

Despite winning a cash prize, Sere failed to land any commercial endorsement deals the way his predecessor did.

In a past interview, his manager Tawanda Nyikadzanzwa said: "Apart from the winning grant of $500, we were looking for opportunities in form of corporate endorsements but nothing of that sort came our way."

Sere looks set to renew his rivalry with Masvinu, who did not take his loss well. He reportedly said: "You made him the winner simply because of his tooth gaps, so does that define ugliness? Do you want me to remove some of my teeth to reclaim my position?"
