Miss Universe

Yup, it's that time of year where we wonder why such an archaic institution is still popular. But, we really don't care about that, we just want to talk about who looks good, etc. Got the following from australian news site:

Reigning Miss Universe

Miss Venezula

Miss Australia

Miss Paraguay

Miss Dominican Republic

Miss Costa Rica

Miss Puerto Rico

Miss Hungary

Miss Lebanon

Miss Brazil

Miss Israel

Miss France

Miss Indonesia

Miss UK

Miss Bahamas

Miss Mexico

Miss Ireland

Miss Albania

Miss Angola

So, for those members who's country isn't listed, post a link. And if you can find better pics than the ones above, post those links too.

p.s. Bilbo, if you post that pic, I'm gonna beat your ass.

Miss Brazil is definetly the best out of those posted so far, but Miss Costa Rica isn't bad either.

And shouldn't Miss Budapest be Miss Hungary?

I don't understand why they don't just start off with Latin America.

Are boob jobs allowed in these contests? Some of them look like they might have had them, like Miss Paraguay.

Quote:
Though it's a divisive issue, cosmetic surgery is currently allowed. The issue made headlines in 1983, when a cosmetically enhanced Miss California became Miss America. (She competed and lost in previous pageants as Miss Texas before the surgery.) Many fans thought this violated the spirit of "wholesomeness" that beauty pageants are occasionally thought to embody.

The official policy for the Miss Universe/Miss USA pageant is: "Although Pageant contestants are discouraged from altering their own natural beauty, no restrictions are placed on cosmetic surgery; it would be impossible to enforce such a rule. In fact, since 1990 the Pageant has allowed the use of padding in an effort to discourage participants from permanently altering their bodies for the competition."

In 1988, the Miss San Diego pageant (a feeder for the Miss California and Miss America pageants) appointed an "official facial plastic surgery consultant," who would advise women on ways to improve themselves. The unpaid position was done away with after its existence was reported in the newspapers.

This thing could easily be Miss Universe, in that the Universe could fit inside it.

Hungary would have my vote, followed by Dominican Republic and probably France or Israel.

Miss Dominician Republic is the most beautiful!

Last year I got to work the Miss America padgent in NJ and got to go backstage. It was so awesome. I felt like a little girl in a fairy land.

Going by the Miss Universe website portraits (which may be deceptive).

Miss Russia is the clear winner for me.



Followed by:

Miss Brasil


Miss South Africa



And Miss Guatemala looks fun.



*Edit*

Based on the pics ShyShy posted top 3 would be:

Miss Dominican Republic
Miss Venezula
Miss Brasil

My favorite is Miss Indonesia.
