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!

Time to flash those pearlie whites. Firm up the posture. And then strike a pose.
Day in and day out, the Miss Universe 2011 delegates should take on a completely regal persona the moment they start their back-breaking schedules that can start as early as breakfast time all the way to post-dinner functions. And as a rule of thumb, they cannot step out of the hotel rooms without looking their best.
Not an easy thing to do if you ask me. But hey, everybody’s got to do it – all 89 of them. 😉
