I never thought that the dumbest questions in the universe can be found in Miss U 2011 until my interest on the show grew due to some interesting stories I heard about for this year’s edition.
The Miss Universe Pageant, to distinguish it from ordinary beauty contests, is supposed to showcase the diverse beauties and brains of women through this pageant. It promotes women as among the main driving force to the progress or growth of mankind as opposed to the old perception that women are the weaker gender in the society. It supposed to send a message to the world through this show that behind such beauty there lies a gray mass in that nutshell that works perfectly fine even when paired with such astounding gorgeous bodies such as the Miss U contestants. But if you’ve got the dumbest questions ask before millions of millions of people watching around the world, what these women are supposed to showcase before us? Nothing.
Let’s take a look of some of the questions once again the guys at the Miss U prepared for this year’s pageant.
For MISS UKRAINE: Vega: If you could trade lives with anyone in history, who would it be and why? (what’s new with this question.. are they running out of ideas to ask?)
For MISS PHILIPPINES: Vivica Fox: Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love? Why and why not? (could you guys do better that this?)
For MISS CHINA: Isabeli Fontana: Nude beaches are common in some parts of the world. Is public nudity appropriate or inappropriate and why? (who cares? those who wouldn’t want to see and get naked need not to come to such places..)
For MISS BRAZIL: Helio Castroneves: What would you do to avoid fighting a war that you did not agree with it? (wtf! as if these ladies can do something about the wars.. can we be more realistic here?)
For MISS ANGOLA: Lea Salonga: If you could change one of your physical characteristics, which one would it be and why? (this climbs up in my list… it’s always been the same old nonsense questions in different form… boring!)
I’m sorry, but this type of questions only shows how beauty contests stupefy women. It seems that beauty contests such as the Miss u are only good for flaunting the almost naked bodies of gorgeous contestants before millions of viewers watching around the world. It sounds pathetic really considering that such pageant is supposed to gather resources (sponsors) for humanitarian works to be spearheaded by the crowned Miss U for the less privilege societies/communities across the globe. But tonight, such noble intent became a mere shadow of a puppet show headed by Donald Trump. Pathetic!
