Subject: But to touch on the cooking show aspect, isn't it funny how when an East/Southeast Asian wins MU, the Top15/Top10 have a healthy number of Asians? 1988 had 4. 2007 had 4. 2015 had 4. 2018 had 5. A sign to the judges on which region/type of look to crown? And then we have everybody's favorite comedienne, Bente Brunland. Putting the "fun" in funeral, Bente was nothing more than dead weight filler in that Top 10. Like a speedbump, her role was to lay on the floor and let the other semifinalists run over her to attain higher placements.

In reply to: Cali_Dude 's message, "Another one that's mentioned often as being fixed was Miss Universe 1988. An Asian sweep is always cool since its rarely ever happens. But after the top 5 was picked that year, it definitely smelled like a cooking show. I loved Korea and Thailand was cool, but Hong Kong and Japan being in the final 5 over USA and Dominican Rep. was pretty "huh??" I always thought the Asian batch from 1989 in Cancun was actually more pretty and worthy even though none of them ended up making the cut. The other thing was the top 10 that year was pretty mediocre with a few exceptions. Colombia was forgetable and Venezuela and her huge hair and space dress was just too much. The weird thing was there were many worthy European girls who scored high in the swimsuit prelims that year and the chosen European ended up being Norway's Bente Brunland, who looked uncomfortable and clumsy all night." on 01:27:34 10/07/20 Wed
