    Anyway, not too many beautiful in this batch. At least PAERAGUAY-daijoo is 4 RU, and my other favorites, Colmobia-daijo and Firipin-daijoo made it to semi finalists! Omedetou!

    • Probably, the judges were divided. There were those who felt that the time has come for Japan to win, and then some who are still iffy about having the host delegate take the title. In the end, the yes votes won.

      • Norman — I’m not sure why Japan suddenly decided to break its 52-year old tradition of not giving the title to one of its own, but it finally did this time. After the pageant’s 6-year sojourn in China (now Japan’s declared political nemesis), Japan has indeed taken back ownership of its pageant — literally and figuratively — in a big way. Although I’m happy for the first Japanese ever Miss International, I certainly thought (and I’m sure many others also) that there were definitely several candidates who, in my opinion, were more deserving of the title. And here we were cheering that because the pageant was back in Japan, that it ensured a level playing field! I hope the pageant’s decision to crown its first Japanese titlist doesn’t dampen enthusiasm for the pageant or erode its credibility. But regardless of how one looks at it, any time a host country’s candidate wins, there is always that nagging suspicion and doubt in the back of one’s head as to what really went on with the judges’ panel. But I guess a cynic could say that if China can pull this off with Miss World, Japan can, too, with Miss International.
