These posing pageant queens are all wet after getting dunked into a dirty pond.

New viral video footage captures the dramatic — or hilarious, depending on your perspective — moment a bridge snaps, plunging 30 smiling Miss Thailand contestants into a dirty lagoon.

The glammed-up crown chasers were mugging for the cameras Monday morning as part of the second day of the competition in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

As part of their promotional duties, the contestants visited a cafe and posed for pictures on a suspension bridge constructed from ropes connected to a steel walkway.

However, the structure collapsed under their combined weight — sending them crashing into the filthy water below.

Three of the girls were injured, with one suffering cuts and bruises on her forehead, while two others had minor scrapes, Newsflare reported. The unintentionally bathed beauties were rushed to the hospital for a checkup but have already been discharged.

Worapot Chatkanjana, 43, the admittedly embarrassed owner of the restaurant where the event was being held, promised to cover treatment costs for the injured women. He donated 500,000 baht (about $16,500 USD) to cover their medical bills.
