In Skuon, "Spiderwoman of the year" is a bitterly contested title. In the end, Cham (right) narrowly pipped Ravenan (left) at the post. The judge ruled, that although Ravenan was attractive, with a winning smile and undeniable charm "an ambassador for spider eating," Cham's technique was second to none. Despite grumblings about favouritism, she retained the title for a record fifth year running.
