Besides Miss Belgium 1981, which are the other ladies that participated at the big three international pageants? Sheís only in a handful and one of very few to place in all three.

Which are the other ladies? Do you know?

Subject: When did pageants begin for you?

What year was it, and/or how old were you?

The reason I ask is because pageants began for me in 1970 (when I was 8) and I just stumbled on the Miss USA pageant where Debbie Shelton was crowned.

I know the MUO pageants pretty well after that point because I watched most of them. The ones before 1970 are "ancient history" and I feel like I don't have any opinions on those titleholders because they are in the "pre-history" era.

Wondering if it is the same for others. When did it start for you? And do you have that same sense of a "before" and "after" era?

Subject: If Miss USA were tonight, who would be your semi-finalists? I admit, its early. Still lots of time. So I'm down to only a Top 20, with quite a few bubbles. (more than previous years, which attests to the level of contestants we have this year)

At just 70 years of age, she passed away today with family gathered around. I am so saddened of this news. She had a small part in Meet the Parents; I remember thinking how great she still looked. Such a beautiful Miss America.

Who are some of your most memorable introductions in the parade of states/nations?

Some of mine would be

1. Simone Vos (Suriname 1991) nearly screaming her introduction
2. Glenor Browne (St. Vincent/Grenadines 1990) dancing and shaking her dress to the mic.
3. Katie Young (Texas 1992), because I couldn't understand what she said. The night of the pageant it sounded like to me that she said something about a tupperware set, lol.

Endeavor, MUO's parent company is reportedly on very shaky financial ground.

It is behind a paywall, so be careful.

What did you think? You can relive it here.



A few random thoughts of mine:

- I thought the music itself was pretty good, but I thought it was strange that they had each contestant come out surrounded by other contestants and dancers. It was pretty distracting and made it hard to focus on the actual contestant for the first few seconds.

- This was a strong year in general. I loved USA, Spain, Jamaica (that walk!!), and Ukraine.

- This was also the year of the YOOGE veneers, especially Philippines and Australia. Too much teeth, LOL.

- Colombia did that arched back thing that Dayana Mendoza specialized in. I guess it worked for both of them, LOL.

- The thing I disliked the most was Jeannie Mai and her meaningless chatter. For all the other changes IMG has made the past few years, I'm glad they at least got rid of her.

- Overall, my favorite was probably Jamaica, followed by USA and Ukraine.

Your thoughts?

Subject: WaLynda Lou SIMPLE and really FIERCE names of REAL PAGEANT contestants!

A lighter subject for this weekend.
What do you think are the FIERCEST names of real pageant contestants?

Original Rican mentioned the former Miss Nebraska USA with a really fierce name: WALYNDA LOU SIMPLE! I love it, though there was a typo and her real last name is SIPPLE! But I think both versions are really FIERCE!

Another fierce name is of course, JENNA TALACKOVA. Jenna's real last name is Talacko, but I think she added the ending to sound more feminine. Great idea! I only wish she would have added a fierce middle name like Shangela, Shantelle, Muhlaysia, etc. That would have been amazing.

But names do not have to be overly complicated and unusual to be FIERCE. When I think of NIKOLE CHURCHILL the word fierce comes automatically. Not only this former runner-up kn VA and NY is fierce as hell. She also won a pageant in a historically Black college as a white girl! I love both the K and the last name of a legendary politician in this combination. Totally fierce.

A few years ago, there was a poster here who was organizing his fictional pageants in his head but on a yearly basis... based on fictional names of contestants. There was a Miss USA and Miss Universe every year. At that time some posters were laughing about the poster but I found the idea really cute and the names were totally fierce and GLAMOROUS. Pete of Paperdolls also has been inventing names to his pageant winners, but based on actual names of pageant contestants.

What are the fiercest names of real contestants that you can think of?

I thought it might be interesting to revisit the incredible run of success by Miss Philippines at Miss Universe in the past decade.

2010 Venus Raj, 4th RU
2011 Shamsey Supsup, 3rd RU
2012 Janine Tugonon, 1st RU
2013 Areiella Arida, 3rd RU
2014 Mary Jean Lastimosa, Top 10
2015 Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Universe
2016 Maxine Medina, Top 6
2017 Rachel Peters, Top 10
2018 Catriona Gray, Miss Universe
2019 Gazinni Ganados, Top 20

Favorites? Least favorites? Thoughts?
