The saying on the left is so true. In a competition like the 65th Miss Universe, being naturally nice (read: genuinely nice) is a plus factor when dealing with everyone involved in the production and all behind-the-camera activities.
Now, backstage ongoings could yet be another way of checking on who really behaves in accordance with proper decorum and just being plain considerate especially during crunch time. Ask people around and Miss Guatemala Virginia Argueta is very likely to get the most number of votes as the most sincere, sweetest and most helpful among the contestants. She goes out of her way to do good things to others. And in front of media, you can tell that she is the real thing – no fake actions in display. For example, she is one of the go-to ladies when it comes to translating Spanish to English among the Latinas. Last night, she was already dressed up in her red gown for the Designers Showcase. And yet, she didn’t mind crouching behind Miss Brazil Raissa Santana to help the latter fix an unruly head of curly hair till everything was in place. And you can definitely tell that she is not play-acting in front of others. She is simply a nice, down-to-earth beautiful lady.
There are a few others who will qualify as being the nicest (Miss Brazil is another one), but Virginia stands out head and shoulders above the rest in this department.
Keep it up, Miss Guatemala! 🙂
