I don't get bodybuilding either, they go overboard and it's not practical. Body building is certainly not a beauty contest. They never look good.
bodybuilding contests are about maximizing the body's physical/muscular potential. that is being lean, and demonstrating how well you've shaped every muscle on the body. It's a real art to itself to get a particular set of muscles to highlight every detail, etc. It's the human version of a dog show, or cattle/farm shows. It's definitely not on beautiful looks, but physical potential.
beauty contests...I really don't know...they seem to be dependent on makeup, hair, surgical treatment, and with very subjective western standards. I think the idea of beauty contests is outdated.
