Protest The Hero's Tim Millar To Compete In World Beard and Moustache Championship

Tim Millar’s big day has finally arrived. Millar, guitarist of Canadian metal powerhouse Protest The Hero, has been growing his beard for three years in hopes of competing in the 2009 World Beard and Moustache Championships. This Saturday, May 23, the Championships will be held in Anchorage, Alaska and Millar will be competing in the “Alaskan Whaler” category.

A film crew will be accompanying Tim as he and Beard Team Canada compete for the first time in this global event. Fans can log on here to support the team and more information about the competition can be found at worldbeardchampionships.com.

Although Tim recently ranked #19 in Metal Hammer Magazine’s “Best Beards in Metal” feature, he tentatively plans to shave the whole thing off when he returns home.

“I’d like to raise money for Locks of Love, a charity that makes wigs for cancer patients under 18. Even though they won’t accept a beard hair donation, I’m cutting off and donating my hair and if I can raise enough money through the Beard Team Canada site, I’ll also shave off my beard after the competition and start fresh for 2011,” says Millar. “It’s for a good cause and if we raise enough money, I’ll reveal my chin that has been hiding for the last 3 years. I’m sure you’re all curious to see if I really do have a chin.”

Beard Championship!?....I knew I should've never trimmed my beard back in high school. I would've had a solid 10 inch beard by now.
