These ladies may not have the heartiest of appetite for breakfast (to keep their weight in check) but they sure are in their best elements posing for cameras first thing outside their rooms! 😉
Never-ending. These two hyphened words best describe the whirlwind of pre-pageant activities that the 83 Miss Universe 2010 delegates are experiencing right now. 24 hours in a day fall short of covering everything that needs to be done and each one of them should be given a full supply of vitamins and energy drinks just to keep up with the pace or fall by the wayside and get no photo opportunities at all. Besides, all these tasks serve as acid tests for the eventual winner. No Miss Universe titleholder can afford to be lazy so she needs to be constantly on the move, with a permanent smile plastered on her face and a winning glow tailing her like a shadow all the time.
The pictures above and below represent the endlessly tiring days and nights of being a Miss Universe contestant…
And the activities just don’t stop!
The pictures can go on and on and on, but only one thing is for sure – being a Miss Universe contestant is no easy job. And we’re just halfway through with covering the pageant. The all-important preliminaries are still upcoming! 😉
The scheduled finals of Miss Espana 2010 has been pegged for September 25 in Toledo. As a result, the organizers decided to call in previous participants and placers, all 14 of them, from where the country’s Miss Universe representative in Las Vegas next month will be selected. Running out of time, they picked the Top 3 from those who joined. Adriana Reveron of Tenerife, formerly Miss Earth-Spain back in 2008, was named winner and is now getting ready to leave for Sin City.The other two ladies who closely pursued her are 1st Runner-Up Tania Ladeiro who was Miss Las Palmas 2005, while the familiar-looking Alejandra Echevarria of Jaen (Miss Earth-Spain and Miss Fire 2009) picked 2nd Runner-Up honors.
Clearly, there was a bit of mad scramble to name the Miss Universe representative of Spain, especially that they announced the selections shortly after the country’s World Cup victory, possibly riding the wave of frenzy and excitement that continues to spur the adrenaline rush in every Spaniard. Will this sit well with the Miss Universe organization? I’m not sure, but Adriana will do her darndest best to hopefully continue the winning streak.
In a separate news not pageant-related, the Madrid Zoo has offered to buy Paul the Octopus from Germany and pay tribute by giving the cephalopod a special residence in their animal park after correctly predicting Spain’s win in the World Cup. If this deal pushes through, then wouldn’t it be more nerve-wracking for the poor creature if they placed more than 80 flag-designed boxes in his aquarium and expect him to forecast which country will win Miss Universe 2010? Just a crazy thought to set up my manic Monday, guys!
Buena suerte, Adriana! 😉
