Multi-millionaire father who promised £240,000 to the man who marries his
virgin daughter unleashed three-month tournament where 10000 interested suitors would compete for his daughter hands in marriage.
Multi-millionaire farm owner Anont Rotthong, from Chumphon province, southern Thailand, took the matter of his daughter Karnsita's future into his own hands with his 'offer'.
But since then, 10,000 men have come forward hoping to marry the 26-year-old heiress. Mr Rotthong, 58, who owns a prosperous durian fruit farm, instantly dismissed one of the candidates as being 'too handsome', fearing that he would end up breaking his daughter's heart.
At first he planned to stage a three-month tournament at his farm in the hope of narrowing down the search.
But after saying he was 'dying because my phone has been ringing off the hook', Mr Rotthong decided he would scrap the idea, Channel News Asia reports.
