My thoughts on Miss Universe

Let’s see what happened:

  • During both parts of questions (for the top 3 & 5 finalists) the translator for Miss Colombia poorly translated the questions and answers. It was clear her spanish wasn’t the best. Therefore translating the answers so poorly and even twisting the words as if she was trying to make her look bad. Not only that, but the translator kept interrupting Miss Colombia as she gave her answers. Huge mistake by the organization of Miss Universe given that these answers are counted in for judging the winner.
  • Then fast forward minutes later, host Steve Harvey announces Miss Colombia as Miss Universe. 
  • 4 minutes and 20 seconds later, Steve Harvey comes back on stage to announce that the winner is Miss Philippines. This is a red flag given the huge time frame and questionable the way he left to the side of stage (the card on his hand could have been easily switched during this)
  • The judges/producers/assistants already knew who the winner was, why wasn’t he interrupted immediately after he announced the winner?
  • Imagine being told you won something, something you have worked for all your life, your biggest dream, imagine being so happy and excited, to be told a few minutes later that you are not the winner. Imagine how heartbreaking that is and having a camera on your face with millions of people watching you. That’s a humiliation.
  • One of the judges, Olivia Culpo, tweeted “THE WINNER IS COLOMBIA #MissUniverse2015 ” (X)
  • Miss Philippines is a beautiful woman and none of this is her fault.Though in my opinion, Miss Colombia did better in every aspect of what the competition takes. Also her answer for the question about U.S military isn’t truly a representation of how citizens of Philippines feel about the situation. Her answer was rather a “fake positive” response for her sake. Whereas Miss Colombia gave her honest great response (even though she was interrupted and translated poorly)
  • For me what Steve Harvey did wasn’t a “human mistake” since he had time to read the card before announcing the winner and if he did make the mistake he could have said it right away instead of going to the side of the stage and allowing Miss Colombia to be crowned. 
Okay so people have filed for presidential candidacy here in the Philippines

And some of these candidates are

Well let’s just


I’ll be honest this one’s pretty normal for the Catholic overpopulated Philippines 

Ah yes let’s all burn flags that;s a great display of diplomacy and mental and emotional stability (although I can’t honestly blame the guy with what China’s been pulling lately)

I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried (good god no) 

I feel you Arturo I also wish we had more seasons than “it’s too hot I’m gonna die” and “fuck it’s raining FUCK IT’S FLOODING”
