I would like to congratulate the winner of Miss Universe 2007, Ms. Japan Riyo Mori. I thought it was Ms. Brazil who would win the pageant. Well well well, as expected our very own Ms. Philippines did not make make it even in the Top 15 *sighs*. Though our own Ms. Philippines Anna Theresa Licaros did not bring home the winning crown, she did manage to won the Miss Photogenic Award. For me, Philippines did not win Miss Photogenic becoz she is “really” photogenic, but becoz of she did manage to get the highest vote in the internet.
The whole pageant for me was soooo damned boring… There are many changes which I really dont like coz it contradict the usual Miss Universe beauty pageant.. It was kinda like a modeling competition, no further assessment in knowing who deserves to be Miss Universe.. The whole program was horrible for me, the hosts, the stage, and ohhh not to mention the disrespectful audience.. Damned!!!…
I feel so sorry for Miss USA, I mean how could the Mexicans treat her like that.. How could that gurl got to do with the current political relation of US and Mexico…. Hahays!! I admire Miss USA coz she continue to strutt her stuff despite of the boo’s…. I bet she is devastated with that particular experience…
