The once-popular pageant, Miss Universe, turns 60 this year. Imagine if they made it a competition only for women and other life forms (it is Miss Universe, after all, so other species should be allowed to enter) who turn the big Six-Oh! this year. Wouldn’t that be something? Alas, that’s not on the agenda.
Held at Credicard Hall in São Paulo, Brazil today, it will be screened on Star! tomorrow.
Remember when these sorts of affairs were broadcast live? We think Donald Trump still had his own hair back then. Sigh.
However, the most surprising thing is that there is still an overwhelming number of young women who continue to enter this pageant. Apparently, this year broke the 2006 record of 86 contestants as a bevy of 89 beauties will contend for the title.
