A handful of contestants competed for the Miss Ruck N Maul crown on Saturday, a big burly beautiful mess of a fundraising pageant for the gay rugby jocks of the Atlanta Bucks.
Scarlett O'Hell-No clawed her way to the top to win the title during the contest at Jungle. She also raised more than $1,200 to support the Bucks and Ready 4 Hope.
The squad's drag fundraiser is always a messy fun sort of night. But just wait until their Purple Dress Run in May.
And with the pageant out of the way, the Bucks will continue to push through their winter season. They play on Saturday at Cheney Stadium.
