Riyo Mori, Ms. Japan was crowned Miss Universe 2007 yesterday. The win marked only the second time her country has won the world beauty title.
Not a big fan of beauty pageants, I watched the show for 2 reasons. The surprise win by Japan (the black, red and purple Japanese-style gown she wore was beautiful), and Ms. USA Rachel Smith, who fell on her butt during the evening gown competition. The fall looked painful, but she recovered very quickly. Still, I could understand why she was jeered by the Mexican audience during the interview phase. When you fall on your butt on the runway, you should NOT get fifth! What about all those other girls who didn't fall?
It wasn't the only problem I have with the pageant. The 20 years old winner was more cute than beautiful, Ms. Brazil (who was runner-up) was much more beautiful than Ms. Japan.
Still, my biggest complain are for those idiots who made Ms. Sweden miss this year's contest. Isabel Lestapier Winqvist dropped out because many Swedes say the competition does not represent the modern woman. It's a beauty pageant people. What? Modern woman want to be ugly?
Stupid doesn't even begin to describe those morons.
