High School Grads Don Bikinis for Power Plant Internship

Choosing an intern can't ever be easy: picking from dozens of teenagers, all of whom will have similar qualifications and experience (or lack of them).

And that's pretty much what went down at CEZ Temelin nuclear plant in the Czech Republic where a bikini contest was held in order to find the plant's newest intern.

The French designer of the bikini may have named his invention after the atoll in the Marshall Islands where the United States detonated nuclear devices in the mid-1940s, but a power plant in the Czech Republic is in trouble after drawing too clear a line linking the explosive power source and two-piece bathing suits.

The contestant with the most Facebook likes on the plant's album was slated to win the position, though the attempt at using the young women's sexuality for an industrial chic fashion competition soon led to a mini-meltdown. "We haven't announced any victor and we apologised".

The post elicited nearly 700 comments on Facebook, with many users slamming the competition as sexist. In this case the participants of the Czech beauty contest Maturantka Roku, translated as the Graduate of the Year were photographed in the environment of the Temelin power plant. However, CEZ eventually took the Facebook post down, and apologized.

Anyway, all 10 Facebook finalists were reportedly offered a two-week position as interns.

A CEZ spokesman told CNET, "We did not want anyone to feel upset".

"The goal of the competition was to promote technical education... but if the original vision raised doubts or concerns, we are very sorry". "But if the original vision raised doubts or concerts, we are very sorry".
