My non-pageant friend who just so happens to be a Lesbian texted me while watching the opening of the pageant, “OMG these women are HOT! I love the costumes, but aren’t they gonna have to change really fast??” I didn’t wanna ruin the magic for her so I said, “Pageant girls are pros, and also, they got them some good Judys backstage.” She thought Chile, Japan, and Brazil were “BOMB.”
The Top 15 was pretty solid – but I was definitely missing my Costa Rica! To me she was the top Latina, and should have been up there before Colombia and Miggy Migs. Also missing was some more black beauty, the two G’s: Guyana and Gabon. Happy for Indonesia and Italy, wasn’t expecting that.
Instead of the videos of each semi finalist, I’d rather have the Top 15 Announced, commercial break, and then an onstage interview with each one. The videos (like they did at Miss USA) killed the excitement of the announcement for me because it dragged. But I do like that the audience is getting to know these women a little bit more.
Jeannie Mai – you’re a mess Girl, and your high five attempts looked more like you were trying to smack the finalists upside their heads. BYE.
The swimsuit competition was WEIRD. Prince Royce’s song, “DARTE UN BESO” is used by my Zumba instructor at the end of class to cool us down and stretch us out. Yea. I couldn’t believe this song was being used for swimsuit – way to drain out all the energy in the room! The audience actually looked like they were bored. And what was up with the non-finalists wearing those tickety-tack embellishments? I was so confused, what was the theme? It kind of reminded me of like, the arts and crafts department at the Dollar Tree (oooh that was shady).
I’m glad India was a little more “controlled” this time around. France was GORGEOUS, but in the grand tradition of beauties from France, she was “Une belle endormie,” or a SLEEPING BEAUTY. Oh, and my neck started to hurt from just watching all the head whipping that MJ Lastimosa kept serving (Girl, STOP).
I understand the pageant has to showcase the host city, but why were we watching the developmental plans for Doral? So this city isn’t even built yet? What? I’m not buying real estate, I just came to see the Miss Universe Pageant. For some reason that irked me.
The Top 10 looked great in evening gown, but God forbid I sneezed or blinked because THEY WERE GONE IN TWO SECONDS. I wanted to see more of them! I couldn’t believe how short their presentation was. Oh, and Miggy Migs, it’s okay to have a lil panzita (tummy), I got one too Mija, but don’t wear a gown that puts a spotlight on it! Pobresita.
Top 5 – just when this Top 5 was about to be Latin-Country free for the first time in FOREVER – they put Colombia in there. Wished it was Spain, that voice of hers shoulda been heard.
Question portion was all over the place, I couldn’t understand the judges or finalists! Oh, and Netherlands – BEAUTIFUL, but hollow. I wanted to know what melody was playing in her head because she seemed just LOST.
Ukraine for me was the most ENTERTAINING to watch that night – she was LIVING. Girl was sopping up all the camera time she could get, I LOVED HER! Sure, she had no idea what she was saying, but she was feeling herself in that Zuhair Murad gown, yass gawd!
My excitement for Jamaica somewhat lessened after the question portion, but 4th runner up? BOOOOO, indeed.
My winner of the night: our Miss USA, Nia Sanchez. Ever since that epic picture of her arriving in Doral, she has knocked it out of the park, and finals night was no different. What I’ve realized about Nia is, she has a quiet confidence – she doesn’t do the over the top gestures or overly fierce walk, and she doesn’t have to. She’s sweet, controlled, confident – and it’s still really great to watch. She also did an amazing job with those questions (kudos to her interview coaches *wink wink*). I did not think I would say this, but Nia Sanchez gave one of the strongest performances by a Miss USA at Miss Universe. FANTASTIC JOB, NIA. THANK YOU!
In regards, to Colombia – I think she is actually pretty, and I did love her gown, and I don’t want to give in to rumors of her supposed bitchy attitude, but there was an air about her that I could not warm up to. And when they announced her as the winner it was just like, “Oh.” I think other results would have been way more exciting, but I am curious to see how her reign will turn out. Hopefully she'll prove us naysayers wrong.
Anyway, thanks for reading - and now lets look forward to MISS USA 2015!
