Czech nuclear power plant auditions bikini-clad students for internship

The search for Miss Nuclear Power Plant has reached the swimwear section at the Czech Republic’s nuclear facility in Temelin. The winner will secure a two-week internship at the site. All 10 contestants are given a hard hat – safety first! – but lamentably not work boots and a high-vis bikini.

And you get to vote for your favourite worker. The power plant has posted photos of all the candidates on its Facebook page. The one who gets the most votes wins.

But no sooner have the photos gone up then complaints pour on. “We didn’t want to offend anyone,” the plant says in a Facebook post. “The purpose of the competition was to promote technical education. But if the original vision raised doubts or concerns, we are very sorry.”

Fair enough. We live and learn. Technical matters are important. Next time best to include the ladies’ vital statistics.

UPDATE: all 10 finalists were given an internship.
