Looks like Miss Universe 2007 is the 美人 (beautiful gal) pictured here wearing her life savings on her wrists and an earring the size of a horseshoe. Not my type at all but none of them really are. They all rather look the same to me. Tall and slanky, long wavy hair, slitty eyes, prominent nose, dark skin (except for Miss Russia) seems to be the formula.
Well good for her. How often does an Asian win these things? This is the second time for Japan. Thailand has also had two winners, the 1988 one having had the name “Porntip Nakhirunkanok”. Har har har! How can a contestant with a name like “Porntip” not win? It almost isn’t fair to the other contestants.
Looking at the Wikipedia page, I learned that the Miss Universe pageant actually has a creed, which goes like this:
“We, the young women of the universe, believe people everywhere are seeking peace, tolerance and mutual understanding. We pledge to spread this message in every way we can, wherever we go.”
And what better way than by trotting around in skanky swimsuits? Ah well, if Osama bin Laden hates this kind of thing, as it’s safe to assume he must, then I can be all for it.
