Life is nothing but a competition where you fight with every other person just to make a way for you and excel from every other participants. But sometimes the competitions can be pretty bizarre, particularly if you are supposed to fight with your toes to win a prize. Here are 10 strangest competitions from around the world that will give you a chill if you consider yourself a player. #1

On their Independence Day, Indonesians play a game similar to ‘Dahi-Handi’ from India. The game is called Areca Tree Climbing Competition, like Dahi-Handi the children try to climb a tree to collect a prize tied to its topmost point but the hard thing is, the tree is greased to make it slippery and hence tough to conquer.

World’s Worm Charming Championship, from England is a very unique competition where participants are required to dig up worms from the soil. The persons who pulls most worms in the given time frame wins the competition.


In China one of the most bizarre competition of the year, The Bee Wearing Competition. Here you are required to cover yourself with bees. The person who covers himself with most bees is declared the winner.


World Beard and Moustache Championship, is one such weird comp. where the participants are required to show creations made using their facial hairs.


In England a very funny championship is organised every year named The Toe Wrestling World Championship. Like the name suggests, the competitors are supposed to wrestle using just their toes. Imagine how hard and whacky this wrestling would be.


A Cherry Pit Spitting competition is organised in Michigan, Where you have to spit a cherry as far as you can.


An Air Guitar Championship is one which tests how good you are at pretending to play guitar. The person who perfectly imitates a guitar playing act is selected as the winner.


World Gurning Festival is one crazy fest where grownups make funny faces by popping their eyes, sticking their tongue out and fluffing their nostrils. The event is so funny that you yourself would start making faces.


Wife racing championship is a championship which will give you an adrenaline rush. Here husbands have to run a race carrying their wife on their shoulders and the winner couple is awarded with kegs full of bear equivalent to wife’s weight. Hard choice eh! Light wife or heavy bear, I would prefer running with my heavy partner rather than leave for home with a light keg.
