18 of the 65th Miss Universe contestants during the Swimsuit Presentation
Bolivia, Belize, Belgium and Barbados
At first, it raised the eyebrows of many watchers – both pageant followers and instant MU-converts – to actually see all the 65th Miss Universe contestants wearing one-piece numbers during the Swimsuit Presentation held at JPark Island Resort in Cebu. Gone were the days when only the more religion-restricted delegates would opt for the same instead of the more usual two-piece swimwears that are favored by many to emphasize the curves they have worked hard for before reaching the point of competition. But hey, if it’s something to somehow minimize the protests of women’s groups like Gabriela, then so be it. Actually, I liked some of the pieces except for the selections with tacky phrases emblazoned on the breast area or big bold numbers that make them look like members of an athletic swimming team.
Here now are videos of the event. You must have already seen them elsewhere, but for the purpose of discussion, I am posting them again.
Then tell me who really nailed their respective turns onstage. Keep in mind that there are no scores given here. The January 26 Preliminaries at MOA Arena will be the time and place for that.
Hi! Norman here. When I'm not working, I spend most of my free time planning on daily blogs. If you will notice, I always make sure that a fresh topic comes out everyday - not an easy thing to do but it's all good. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the visit!
