[> [> Subject: I wonder what criteria did they use to select 15 girls that flew to the PH. I see non-finalists from Korea, Russia, Malaysia, Italy, Netherlands as well as 6 girls who placed, plus Demi and Ines. Clearly it has nothing to do with visas, as PH does not require visas to the large majority of countries, IN and CN are some of the exceptions.

[> [> [> [> [> Subject: I read from the official press release that the Tourism department invited girls from countries with high tourist arrivals in the Ph and those from their target markets. But yeah, Japan and Australia are missing if this was the criteria. The event was sponsored by a private entity, Frontrow something, so maybe the last say was still from them. I also read that Thailand was not able to make it even if she confirmed during her interview after the finals due to contract issues. The MU Thailand org works closely with the Thai tourism so having her promote Ph is definitely a conflict of interest

[> Subject: OMG no Latinas (yeah and don't even think of insulting Spain by referencing her as Latina just because she speaks Spanish LOL). Remember the days when Latinas were front and center thanks to their network partners??? Of course today they are all claiming they are shut out (unfairly of course) because of money.

latin was the ones who spoke latin and then those who speak a language that comes from Latin, like spanish, italian, portuguese or french......so latin americans are Latinos because they speak Spanish

[> [> Subject: Honestly, your not latina. She is. Know your history before you speak. Latina is simply the hispanic way of saying for Latin. Latin is a language. It is the language that came from Europe. The Spanish (Spain, Italian and French languages came from latin in those countries first. South American countries were conquered by Spain and the indigenous Indian who mixed with the Spaniards then took on this language and began boasting and beating their chests calling themselves latina. Thereby giving it a new meaning and definition amongst themselves. .

[> [> Subject: That is an excellent observation. I sometimes group all three winners by year. But I have found IMG to do an amazing job with Miss Universe productions and select great winners. USA on the other hand is dreadful. While Kara is a slight improvement over Deshauna, they are both equally bad. Is Olivia considered IMG?

[> [> [> Subject: I've read in some Latina pages that they find Iris and Pia's reigns boring and that the last time it was exciting was during Paulina's (what a shocker!!!). They keep on making fun of Pia cooking in her NY apartment and Iris doing make-up tutorials. Honestly, I don't recall anything significant that Paulina has achieved during her reign either. Hers was as equally boring as the queens from the IMG era. I have high hopes for Demi though. I find her very charming. I hope MUO gets their act together and give her better opportunities.


Author:
IMG/MUO still has a lot to do to better manage the pageant and the org itself. However, looking at the winners for the past 3 years, I think they are making a step to the right direction. Just my two cents.

[> [> [> [> Subject: Paulina was the worst! So no one remembers how goofy and awkward she was? Kaci Fennel should have won that year. Not only was Paulina unpolished and lacking the regal quality of all three of the recent winners, she also looked incredibly basic on a daily basis.

last Latina Miss U I liked was Ximena and of course Zuly

[> [> [> [> [> Subject: IKR, Paulina's reign was also uneventful especially when you compare it to her predecessor, Molly. As for me that last Latina whose reign I enjoyed was Stefania. I was not her big fan when she was crowned, but through the video blogs they posted of her, I warmed up to her and saw a very beautiful and kind person. Up to now, I can't forget her video blog episode where they went to Rwanda and the plane lost her luggage. On that video blog, an MU sash was especially made for her by a tailor in Rwanda and she said she will treasure it more because it is the people who made it (or something to that effect).

I love Stefania and after her reign, she was miles ahead of Dayana.
