While surfing the web today I may have found the ugliest man on the internet. Now before any of you chastise me for calling him "ugly," he makes these faces so that he can be labeled as such. His name is Chester Lee Ridens, and he has his own youtube page titled "dubbed Ugly University." While many of his faces may be flat out scary at times, he has a purpose behind his "ugly faces." He wants help people accept themselves and encourage kindness toward others. He told Daily Dot, "I want to promote that ugly people in general are good, productive people who were born with a look they can't really change."



Ridens’ videos have been viewed more than 3.3 million times and have collected comments from people praising him, well, for his face. Riden says, “I will continue being a simple ugly guy who wants others to feel better about themselves even at my expense.”
