If Brazil is hosting Miss Universe 2011, will a game of soccer be far behind? Of course not! Some of the girls were game enough to engage in a fun match of kicking and running in the field while wearing their most colorful uniforms of the sport. Host delegate Priscila Machado led the charge and you can see how much adrenaline-pumping moves they did. Check them out!

What’s a beauty pageant without beach scenes? So the Miss Universe 2011 delegates have been whisked to Praia de Enseada for a day of taping and frolicking in its cool waters. It is cold in Sao Paulo right now, but nothing beats parading in two piece swimwears and sexily posing to photographers.

In the lovely grounds of Hilton Sao Paulo Morumbi, some of the Miss Universe 2011 delegates were asked to pretty themselves up to have some photo-shooting time. These ladies are still at that point of not experiencing the heavy pressure of the pageant so we’ll see who will remain regal and gorgeous as the punishing schedule starts reeling in succession.
