A Missed Crowing Moment

Yesterday as I walked into my office several of my coworkers {who were all well aware of my love for pageants} began to question me about this year's Miss Universe pageant. Miss Universe 2010 was crowned on Monday night, August 23rd and I missed the entire pageant!!!!

A southern, belle from south Alabama, a former crown chaser and an eternal lover of pageant and all things bling-missed a crowning moment. What can I say? Life has been busy, yet fulfilling! I guess I will need to get TIVO! Until then I will have to rely on the world wide web for recaps... Click here to read more of the article from which the excerpts below were taken.

Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete, of Guadalajara, beat out 88 other women from six continents at the 59th annual pageant held in Las Vegas, broadcast live on NBC.

Miss Jamaica Yendi Philipps took second place, Miss Australia Jenista Campbell took third, Miss Ukraine Anna Poslavska got fourth, and Miss Philippines Venus Raj—the projected favorite coming into the competition—took fifth place.

Navarrete was the top scoring competitor in the evening gown component of the competition, and was the second-highest scorer in the swimsuit portion.

Judges asked Navarrete about the effect that the Internet has on young people and she said it is an indispensable tool.

Miss USA Rima Faikh, the first Muslim-American person to win the Miss USA competition, did not make it to the final round.

Now that was shocking for me.... We always make the final round....

On another note, there seems to be a lot of controversy surrounding the answer of Miss Philippines 2010. Some say that her answer or lack thereof seemed to have cost her the crown...

Did any of you get to watch the pageant? If so, what was your opinion?
