Subject: Actually precursor is not really the right term, I thought it means to foreshadow. This year sorta foreshadows the future of Europe at Miss Universe as Europe has only produced two additional winners since 1990 (and one argues Russia 2002 did not finish her reign).

In reply to: Samuel 's message, "Thank you for the in-depth review. It was a good read. Interesting that you applied the continental system along with a top 15 and saw how the semifinalists changed. Alt. that would’ve preferred a complete European shutout (this year is kinda like a precursor for Europe’s eventual downfall at the pageant), I still like the girls making it based on merit and preliminary averages rather than continental quotas. It would be sad to see the 6, 7, and 8th place contestants not making it while 19th, 21st, and even 22nd placed girls make it. It doesn’t seem fair imo. I think Chelsi is very beautiful but unfortunately she isn’t as supported by the international pageant community. This was a year where nobody really stood out as stunning gorgeous and Chelsi who was very poised and elegant managed to win the title. Nice job USA! RIP Chelsi" on 23:28:46 05/14/20 Thu

[> [> [> Subject: Western Europe was the dominant region for a good portion of MU's history. I would say that it was 1985 when the tide shifted in that Latin America began to take hold as MU's dominant region. I calculated Western Europe results at MU and listed inside the years where Western Europe took at least 3 of the Top 5. There has yet to be a Top 3 year where Western Europe has taken at least two of the Top 3.
