Synopsis
A conceited jerk wins Mr. Earth and is contacted by aliens who wish him to enter a "Mister Universe" competition. He doesn't stop to ask what the prize is, but arrogantly accepts, figuring he can beat the other contestants even though they are even more bigger and muscle-bound than he is. It turns out the other contestants knew what the prize was and so they let the Earth representative win, as he is then turned into a living statue for all the universe to marvel at forever.
