Subject: Prior to winning Miss Universe, Barbara Palacios won Miss Sudamerica (South America). It may not be a worldwide program, but international nonetheless. Ironically, the first and second runner-ups were Colombia and Brazil, who both also placed at Universe. Back then, competing in this program was a trial run leading up to Universe.

[> [> [> Subject: I just watched the crowning vid. I dont know what Brazil looked like but she probably should have taken Poland’s place. More importantly, it just came screaming back to me that Christie was in that dating show where kids picked a mate for their dad. I was in my early teens and thought the show was so ridiculous but I kept watching lol. I didn't learn about Christie being Miss USA until much later. Or, maybe I did and just didn't pay attn to the fact.

[> [> [> [> [> Subject: I believe it might have been circa 2003? I watched some episodes. Christy did come off well both personality and look wise. But she was clearly the sexiest babe in there... and children preferred a less good looking but wholesome Christina. Some kids were not sure if Chrusty's motivations aare sincere as the man in the show was rich.

[> [> [> [> [> Subject: She was 1st runner up in that show as well. Rmmbr the lie detector tests? Was it that ridic? I am uncertain if wikipedia is planting a false memory in my head. And, speaking of runners up, Halle Berry! Do you guys think she would have had a better chance bagging the Universe crown than Christie? I don’t.

[> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: I don't either. I have often wondered if Halle Berry would have had a successful acting/film career if she had actually won Miss USA. I assume not, because she probably would have gone down a different path. The only Miss USA to have anything like a successful film career (as far as I know) was Laura Harring, although she seemed to fizzle out just after she hit it big.

[> [> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: Also, I think you can’t win Miss Universe in order for you to be successful in modelling/acting/entertainment. Helena Christensen and Gal Gadot immediately come to mind. Halle might still have had the same trajectory had she won USA and had gone unplaced in Miss U. And then there’s Culpo. I dont know how to describe her success immediately following her reign other than attributing it social media and dating hot jocks.

[> [> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: I don't either. Christy was perfect for her era. Haley was more of a natural beauty after a fresh & natural Laura Herring Mertinez won the year before.... Barbara Palacios was full glam and very 80s, Halle wasn't that.
