AFRICA NEEDS TO BOYCOTT MISS UNIVERSE

Seems you either have to be fair skinned, blonde or from South America to pass the litmus test in that pageant. It happens every year. You always hope each time they will pick more than one or two black contestants just so you can be satisfied that it wasn't tokenism at play. And another thing is that practically all the South American contestants make it in to the next round. What is that about? Anyways we need to boycot this pageant all together as a continent until Donald Trump gets his people to get thier judging act together. Now I am not sure I care to sit through another hour and a half watching the silliness of it. Ok so i'll just stay to hear what the queer guy from Queer Eye has to say.. he's a funny dude.

You are so right about that. I stopped watching the minute I realised there were no africans going to the next round. I just couldnt be bothered. That queer guy is so funny.

I was pretty peeved about it myself..How far no dudu people?. I tuned off after Nigeria didn't make it through the Top 20...So, I scurried on to the Pageant website to check out her interview and see were her head was at intellectually...and..No comment!

I think Trinidad and Tobago was stunning in her Yellow ensemble(against her lovely shiny dark skin)

Meanwhile..Heard Miss Uinverse Zuleyka Mendozza 2006 fainted/ passed out after posing for pictures for photogs...Hmmm..wonder why

Also how come the judges were all American... and the quality of the judges was something else i mean the girl who carries the briefcase on deal or no deal was a judge..

The first two years that Trump took over the paegent dark skinned black girls won. One woman was from Trinadad and Tabago and the next year the woman was from southern Africa( I can not remeber the country). The woman from Trinadad and Tabago was very dark-skinned. Miss Ethopia made top 20.
South American contestants always do well because beauty pagents are a large part of the culture there. South American countries spend a lot of money to ensure that their representives are pagent ready.In the last 10 years, India has done well with pagents because they have steped up their game also.

Mpule Kwelagobe of Lobatse, Botswana was crowned Miss Universe in May of 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago. She was the first woman ever to represent Botswana in the Miss Universe pageant, and the first Black African to win the title. Like Angela Visser, Mpule participated at the Miss World pageant (in 1997) where she was unplaced. Mpule beat out more than 80 other countries vying for the Miss Universe crown including Miriam Quiambao of the Philippines who was the 1st runner up. Placing third was Diana Nogueira of Spain. Rounding out the top 5 includes delegates from South Africa and Venezuela. Delegates from Ghana, Jamaica, India, Mexico and Puerto Rico round out the top 10.

The 1999 pageant was marred by the rumor that Miss Guam, Tisha Heflin, was pregnant. Her subsequent withdrawal from the pageant and supposed pregnancy became the basis of the final question, which Mpule answered with aplomb, and many believe that was what snared her the coveted title.

In February 2000, she was appointed Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund.

The above information is from Wikipedia--

You are right but still they need to start getting their judging right. I was quite upset with them not even picking Japan because that chick was on point.

Yeah...WHY did they all look alike? Is there only ONE standard of beauty?
Why don't they all rock some hard core Ashoke or Lace & we'll see what they look like?
Infact I'm totally DISSAPPOINTED!!!

Miguel said...
