    I saw the contestants at the ms universe website. Europe is very strong this year; Serbia, France, Switzerland, Ukraine and Spain are knockouts.


    African has some strong contestants in Angola and South Africa.

    But South America is again so strong - Ms Columbia, Panama, Bolivia and Ms Chile. I rooting for Ms Chile, Chile has been out of the Ms Universe contest for about 5 years.

    Carribean - Ms Jamaica and Haiti.

    I'm not too crazy about Ms USA

    I'm pulling for the Asian contestants, specifically Korea and Singapore. The videos were removed from YT but the contestants were asked about the advantages of being a woman over men and Ms. Singapore replied that women can participate in beauty pageants and flick their hair. lol I'm rooting for her just on the basis of that. Korea answered with very good English and is apparently quadlingual.

    I am usually indifferent for the USA delegates in the past but I like the one from this year. Miss USA 2011 is beautiful AND she's a Star Wars geek! I was hoping her national costume is Princess Leia with buns or in slutty gold bikini, but instead her national costume will be slutty founding fathers.

    I hope an European wins this one. When was the last time someone from Europe took the crown? I remember that dethroned Miss Russia back in 2002 I think, then I can't remember any of them since the 90s.

    Norway won in 1990... Netherlands in 1989. USA has a huge shot to win. She's our best candidate in a long time...plus 9-11 is the previous day. It helps. No Latina will win this year--too many in a row.

    Will there be a 9-11 related final question from one of the judges? Will there be a Carrie Prejean moment? Or a South Carolina teen one?

    Off topic, but I love Dlisted.

    Someone I went to HS with, who actually used to skate and compete nationally, won Miss Korea Texas. Apparently that got her a berth to Miss Korea, which she did not win. She said it was because she was an American, but I don't know. I actually don't like her too much tbh

    USA, Angola, Trinidad & Tobago, and Netherlands are my favorites.

    I'm a little shocked that Venezuela sent another lackluster contestant, they could actually miss the Top 15 for the second year in a row, which never happens.

    Hard to tell from just photos, but I like some of the Scandinavian girls: Denmark, Sweden, Finland. Also Switzerland and Germany.

    It's probably done in groups over three nights.

    The 2011 Miss Universe Presentation Show, featuring all 89 contestants parading in swimsuits and evening gowns, will take place tonight at the Credicard Hall in Sao Paulo. The event is scheduled to begin at 7:30 pm EST (8:30 pm Sao Paulo time, 1:30 am Central European Time)
    This is from another site. Sorry, it says 7:30 pm, not 8. It does appear that all 89 will appear in swimwear and gowns tonight. Pics should be available tomorrow for those who can't watch tonight, like me.

    I like Turkey and USA the most.

    USA kinda looks like a red headed Taylor Swift in the left glamshot though.

    Greece has a lovely, classical national costume.

    There are a few that I liked:

    Top 15:
    Canada
    Curacao
    Puerto Rico
    Trinidad and Tobago
    Philippines

    Top 10:
    Angola
    Argentina
    Brazil
    Venezuela
    Japan

    Top 5:
    Netherlands
    Australia
    Singapore
    Chile
    USA

    I think that this is Miss USA's to lose. Everything seems to point to her. She is our best contestant in a long time, the pageant is on September 12th, she is as far from Latina as possible, and she is fierce.

    It's a fairly sad state of affairs when being held on the day after the anniversary of a national tragedy is seen as a plus for a contestant in a beauty pageant.

    Just to warn you that Ireland are playing the US in rugby on Sunday and we're not going to let you win just because of the day that's in it.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Seriously.

    Reminds me of this:

    The Prelims were last night in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I watched it all unfold online. All 89 contestants competed in evening gown, then swimsuit, for the selection of 15 semifinalists, to be announced at the start of Monday night's finals. (A 16th semifinalist, voted by the public via internet, will also compete on Monday.)

    Those who missed it live can see the entire show through this link (free):
    http://www.globalbeauties.com/univer...entation-show/

    Here are my choices for top 16, in order of preference:

    Miss Universe - PERU

    1st runner-up - CHINA

    2nd runner-up - GREECE

    3rd runner-up - KOSOVO

    4th runner-up - PUERTO RICO

    The other 10 semifinalists selected by the judges and the organization:

    6. Spain
    7. Ukraine
    8. Curacao
    9. Sweden (who won Miss Photogenic last night)
    10. Netherlands

    11. Vietnam
    12. USA (everybody talking of her thinness...earlier was a huge fave)
    13. France
    14. Mexico
    15. Venezuela

    16th contestant, voted by fans: Philippines (they & Pto Rico have the craziest fans)

    Others who are highly touted, not on my own list: Angola, Aruba, Finland, Malaysia, Panama, Russia

    Normally the "hostess" delegate -- this year, that's BRAZIL -- is a shoo-in to the semifinals but most fans don't care for her. Her win as Miss Brazil was highly controversial. Also, she is said to be stuck-up, according to well-regarded press. Face is so-so though she has a fabulous figure. She was actually boo'ed by the audience last night, which is so rude.

    Two special prizes were given last night: Miss Photogenic (Sweden) and Miss Congeniality (Montenegro)

    Can't wait for next Monday night. As Puerto Rican household, Miss Universe is our "Super Bowl"! We always host a Miss Universe Viewing Party and invite our Boricua friends from the DC area. If Puerto Rico wins, I won't go to work on Tuesday, that's for sure.
