In any country in the world it is easy to be good looking – you get a lot of attention and plenty of admirers, but China takes admiration of beauty to the next level. You know how they say there’s no such thing as a free lunch? Not true, if you are a pretty face in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, according to the China Daily.
It is quite unusual promotion don’t you think? But in any case, if you are confident that your good looks will get you a free meal you should get yourself over to that restaurant in Zhengzhou.
The dubiously named “Free Meal for goodlooking” or “Pay by face” promotion allows customers that want to compete for a free meal to get their faces scanned. Then the judges – cosmetic surgery experts on the other side of a screen – decide if you are pretty enough to get a free meal.

The panel of judges are made up of staff members from the plastic surgery clinic located right above the hotpot (火锅) restaurant, and the mugshot from the machine helps them decide whether you are pretty enough to eat for free.
However, according to the promotion only five people are scanned every half hour, and whoever gets the highest score gets a free meal. This weird promotion started on January 10 and will finish on February 9.
So far, the promotional materials seem to only include women, so no word on whether lads can get free meals as well.
