John-Henry-Eden: Well, it was a contest for drag queens, who were probably imitating a younger, idealized Dolly. At 4’11”, she would have been one of the shortest in the line-up, too.
sanguiniuswept: Charlie Chaplin came in third in a Charlie Chaplin lookalike contest
Swinnster: When there’s contest held based on people looking like you…you know you made it. Shit I’d go to my look-a-like contest too.
aCertainBlueLobster: I can’t fathom how I would handle a comment like this. It’s so confusing.
“Sorry. You don’t look enough like you.”
EdgewoodJackson: Dolly is just so damn lovable.
henryci: Adele surprised fans in a similar way. https://youtu.be/OHXjxWaQs9o
Sevnfold: So, oddly enough, I just went down a little Dolly Parton rabbit hole yesterday. There’s a few sources claiming she’s “covered” in tattoos but hides them by always wearing long sleeves.
I only found 2 relevant pictures. One where shes showing a lot of cleavage and you can see something (tattoo) between her breasts. Another pic she had transparent sleeves you can see what looks like a butterfly tattoo on her arm.
Landlubber77: He summarily exiled her from Pigeon Forge and enslaved all the employees of Dollywood. While lost in the forests of the Smoky Mountains she was taken in by a group of benevolent anthropomorphic animals who taught her life lessons through song about perseverance and self-confidence, instilling within her the strength to confront her impostor and rescue all the denizens of Dollywood.
vkeshish: This woman is a saint. What she does for early child development is amazing.
Mulligan0816: Well, it was a Dolly Parton LOOK ALIKE contest… So naturally Dolly Parton herself should’ve naturally not won right?
dewdude: That voice.
Listen to early recordings. Listen to later recordings. It never changes. Her bust size and other attributes of her body has….but her voice has never changed.
And thats quite an accomplishment for someone her age.

Burrowmonster: “That’s a nice Dolly Parton costume but your scar’s on the wrong side!”
PistisDeKrisis: [Just gonna leave this here…](https://youtu.be/bp6TFWdz5-Y)
SmarchHare: I remember Shirley Manson took one of those “Which 90s leading rock women are you?” tests and got Courtney Love.
cowpattymelt: Did he have basketballs tucked into his shirt?
Semperdrunk: TIL Dolly Parton is only 4’11”. Which is a good thing in her case, I suppose.
PeteFord: hey, fuck your slideshow. How about that?
crunchybananataco: My dad used to pinch his index finger on his left hand between the tips of his right index finger and thumb and go “you know what this is” “its dolly parton standing behind a tree” and die laughing…dirty old man (the fingers are boobs)
TotallyScrewtable: Same thing happened to Adele.
She lost to a fat 73-year old bird-calling Cockney chimney sweep.
anonymous_coward69: Things that try to look like things often do look more like things than things. Well-known fact.
(Obviously not implying that women or drag performers are just “things.” That’s just the quote, and it’s about a crown. But it applies.)
goodSunn: Gotta watch this comedy short of same situation with Bob geldolf
That link is just part 2
Premise is a ‘look a like night’ at a small rural club… with Elvis s and marylnn Monroe and Elton John’s etc… and Bob gets stranded there when his limo driver drives off without him accidentally
LtDan52: Chandler entered a Vanilla Ice look alike contest and won!
quake35: “Charlie Chaplin once entered a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest in Monte Carlo and came in third; that’s a story.”
