@Confidence... Um maybe because she is from Angola - a former Portugese Colony. Guess you don't know much about Africa except for South Africa.

I cannot understand the ignorance that people like @Confidence is portraying. Obviously hisher world is very limited to his immediate community. Let me educate you - people speak various languages other than English around the world. The competition is a Miss "Universe" pageant, so one must conclude that some of the competitors do not speak English. One does not have to know English to win a competition.
