Subject: E! BEHIND THE SCENES: MISS UNIVERSE 1999

Back when pageants were still relevant, E! did these amazing Behind The Scenes documentaries on Miss Universe, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss World.

Here is their coverage on MU 1999:



For those who don't want to watch/have time to watch, here are a few spoilers:

- Kimmie Pressler actually wanted to win and her family had high hopes for her

- Kimmie was clearly given some insider perks because she had already selected her pink Diane Von Furstenberg opening number dress before she left for TnT and already knew the bathing suit colors (she wanted to wear yellow)

- Kimmie saw the prelims broadcast in her hotel room and while on camera said she thought she looked funny and overweight in EG. I wonder if it was at this point she knew things may not go her way

- According to Miss TnT, after Top 10 was called, one clapper was ripping her hair out backstage in anger

- After Venezuela failed to make Top 3, she, USA and TnT had a special moment backstage where they cried together and consoled each other

- A hurricane in Florida almost ruined the pageant, as many key production crew and props had to pass through Florida from California to make it to TnT on time

- Guyana had to support a doubtful Botswana backstage who felt she wasn't going to win because her country was debuting that year

- Puerto Rico and France looked lovely

- Japan's translator arrived late so the poor girl was left to her own devices because she didn't speak English

- According to Scott Grossman, there were over 250 performers who took part in the opening number apart from the delegates

- You can tell the opening number we saw during the telecast (where the delegates were in their National Costumes) was pre-taped. They were wearing their opening number dresses live on stage for those in attendance (Dani Walker also stated that the opening number for MU 2020 was also pre-taped because none of the ladies were dancing while she was in attendance)

- Miss USA/Universe were living in L.A. during this time but relocated to New York shortly after the MU pageant

Crystle Stewart was a great Miss USA. If she had not fallen at Miss Universe in 2008, I think she would have made the top five and placed as second runner up.

As the new National Director, I think that Crystle should put a strong emphasis on being authentic when it comes to speaking. Brooke Lee and Deshauna Barber come to mind.

When looking for the next Miss USA she needs to be able to hold her own on the Miss Universe stage.

The last four winners have been awful.

What are some of your thoughts on the things that Crystle should do as the new National Director?

Some random group pics from Day 3 & 4:


BOLIVIA-FRANCE-MEXICO
They all look stunning here. BOLIVIA's still one of my faves. FRANCE is looking so refreshed, and MEXICO I'm starting to get.


CHILE-BRAZIL-SOUTH AFRICA-ARGENTINA-PORTUGAL-PUERTO RICO
In contrast, I don't think any of the ladies look great here. CHILE is still one of my faves but even she isn't impressing me here.


SLOVAKIA-CZECHIA
I admit to overlooking SLOVAKIA a bit, she does have a very beautiful face, as does CZECH REPUBLIC (though kinda weird to see a bathroom selfie, ladies).


THAILAND-ISRAEL
I admit to appreciating THAILAND more recently, this isn't one of her best photos, and despite her being tagged as the favorite to win, I still can't see her actually winning.

Maybe it's me, but I don't feel the excitement and anticipation towards the next MU as I would in the past. Perhaps it's the predictability of the IMG era or the return of Telemundo or the lack of a major broadcast network, who knows. Anyone else feel the same way?

Chelsi Shikongo (23 yrs, from Walvis Bay) has just won the Miss Namibia 2021 pageant in Windhoek.


Here's her performance on pageant night:


I kinda love her and though she paused a bit during her OSQ, I was impressed by her performance at Miss Namibia.

Chelsi will represent NAMIBIA either at Miss World 2021 in Puerto Rico or Miss Universe 2021, reportedly in Costa Rica.

I'm glad Namibia's coming back after sitting out this year an I hope we get to see Chelsi compete at Miss Universe. (side note: I wonder if she was named for Chelsi Smith, who was crowned as Miss Universe in Namibia)
