Dolly Parton entered a look-alike contest, and lost. But if losing wasn’t bad enough, she lost it to a man in drag. How could this happen?

When Dolly Parton entered the look-alike contest  in Santa Monica, California, it was only meant to be as a joke. After all, it was a drag queen contest, and surely she would win. Her plan was to compete, win and then make the big reveal at the end, showing all that the winner was the real deal. But oh boy was she in for a surprise. She lost.
