I don't think the contests are meant to be taken seriously. They're just a plot device - recurrence. This has been employed by countless manga: for example, someone getting hit on the head, or like Negi blowing his nose and upskirting every girl within a one-mile radius in Mahou Sensei Negima!. If you recognize it as such, I don't think you'll find it annoying anymore.

1. 10,000 chapters and counting. (...Otaku alert!)
2. I love Comedy/Romance/School Life (as you probably can tell!), especially when they're all together.
3. I welcome spiffy debate but I don't do quarreling (or forum trolling).
