    Enjoy your day at work on Tuesday. Miss Puerto Rico hasn't a chance in hell. This is so not the year of the Latina. I will be shocked if Miss USA doesn't win.

    Agreed. You're going to let the USA win because we're a better team.

    Even though I am from the USA, I hope our gal doesn't get near the podium. That child looks way, way too thin! She isn't even pretty, she's so thin. And the camera ADDS weight, so lord, what she must look like in person. I really wouldn't want her held up as the ultimate example of beauty. Not a good role model!

    I know it's a no-no-Latina year, but Miss Costa Rica has fabulous legs!

    Some people are just naturally leaner, but I agree that USA looks too thin. If she won, it could send the wrong signal to younger people watching the show.

    Miss Chile's pandering whore miner costume.

    Remember those poor, trapped men?

    She's not pretty enough for this ploy to work, but thanks anyway for the cheapest looking costume I've seen in a while (aluminum foil comes in copper color?). Didn't we see this on Project Runway in Seth Aaron's season?

    Some countries have a harder time coming up with costumes. The USA usually has The Statue of Liberty, an astronaut, or some version of a military uniform. Some countries' pageant program do not have the budget for this and the young woman just wears an evening gown.

    I'm sure Chile has a lot more to offer than the mining incident.

    You're getting more and more annoying.

    I'm sure there is someone in the US who cares about rugby and will be upset about this.

    Supereconomicosocipolitious!

    What do you think a beauty pagean is today, if not a platform for world justice and social engineering….

    Breaking news. There will be no winner this time. Everyone will get a pewter medal.

    Miss Belgium must've thought she was on her way to an ice dance pageant.

    Miss China's evening gown is stunning.

    Columbia thought she was in the 70s on her way to Studio 54.

    Cyprus' gown also has ice dance potential with the feathers and cut-outs.

    Guatemala thought she was at a casting call for Dynasty. Kazakhstan was going with her.

    Romania's gown is ridiculous. I must own it.

    What on earth was Miss USA wearing?? The video edits out her solo walk, so I just saw as the whole group walked back out, but it didn't look good...

    I agree. I like Miss USA but she has lost a lot of weight since the Miss USA Pageant. I hope she doesn't score high during the swimsuit because no bones should be visible.

    Was there ever really a pageant when the contestant actually said "world peace" or is this just some urban myth? Commercials present the proverbial blond, breathy, bimbo uttering "world peace" but did it really happen? I do remember the gibberish from a Miss Teen USA contestant a few years ago but most of these girls/women seem fairly poised on camera.

    The players on the team and I think that's about it.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Rugby is very popular in New England prep schools and in the Ivy League and potted ivy schools. The players and their families may not be numerous, but they are Skull and Bones influential.
