Miss Singapore Bleah..

*arghh*

ok ok..I agree that Sandy Chua answered her questions well but Miss Singapore Universe isn't an intelligence or oratorical contest lah! It's beauty first then brains! She is the...erm actually the least aesthetic pleasing of the top 10 *eerks* I thought the judges claimed to have picked the one with the best mix of beauty and brains. They clearly forgotten abt the former in this case.I thought Marilyn should win..though she seems to be speaking her mind in the final question. Sandy makes a better 1st runnerup. Yeah..everyone's a judge and critic~~

Oh well, she's gonna be one of the plainest in Miss Universe *sigh* But then again, Singapore will never win but at least send someone who's goodlooking lah! *arghhh*

my sentiments exactly!!! the top five didn't leave the judges with much choice i guess. 3 of them weren't English educated i reckon judging from the way they spoke. eeks.

But I think the answers by the finalists were abt the same.."you go girl!" *roll eyes*...Sandy answered the best and most succinct but Marilyn's answer was not too bad too..With that, they should have chosen what they claimed to have done so..a mixture of beauty & brains! bleah!

Well, some of the finalists are not that bad looking lah..I thought this year's pick wasn't that bad actually with the clear exception of 1. April was just the worst ever of the lot and she didn't make it to top 10 anyway.

I think the judges are the ones to be blamed. I mean..seriously..they should know what kinda looks 'works best' from those international pageant. I think our judges try too hard to dispel the 'beauty queens are bimbos' impression.

this whole pageant is a fiasco. the image of it is in the pits and nobody smart and beautiful will join it. ever. they don't need a pageant to prove themselves, and they have better things to do. heck, we should just scrap it.

well, it's a quick way to get noticed anyway and also a good way to get ur foot into the entertainment industry so it aint actually a fiasco..HK TVB picks their artistes thru their pageants actually.

Actually, the background/resume of some of the contestants arent bad. But in the end, it always boils down to their actual performance and the problem is, many of them just freeze and f*up during the actual event. Simply not enough training.

Im sure the media's gonna have a field day tomorrow.

Heh! Sandy Chua happened to be in the previous NUS Union Ball pageant, but she wasn't in the top 3 positions.

Oh well, thing is, people with the real good looks often couldn't bother themselves with pageants in Singapore. Or so imo anyway. =)

It has always been the case so relax relax... =)

I was rooting for either Joan or Marilyn (sp?)? these 2 are what i call drop dead gorgeous with the queen look plus some x-factor. The Laura Tan girl is pretty cute too but has a common sg girl look lah.

In the top 10, notice the thum sum yee gal? She has the cutest lips man. So sexy, maybe men will agree with me hahah!

Joan is photogenic but not that telegenic..She got that high society/tai-tai look leh! I was actually rootin for her initially when i saw her pic. Marilyn has one of the better bodies i thought..she is slim but still booby and oh so tanned. Yeah..Laura Tan was pretty but not queen material.

Actually, contrary to the media report, i thought this year's girls werent that bad [facial beauty wise] (cept for just that 1 girl everyone's lamenting abt)..but most of their Q&A's were quite bad/lame..Was quite disappointed with Joan's Q&A answers actually..i thought she would fare better in it.

Sum Yee reminds me of Shu Qi..very pouty lips :P

I'm convinced that Singapore's prettiest/sexiest women stay clear of beauty paegents. There's no way those contestants are the cream of the crop of the female population here. Geez, I think there are even prettier women with more poise in my workplace ... and that's saying a lot! LOL!

heh..yeah. I remember Ang Peng Siong did say that he sees more beautiful singaporean gals on the street than in the pageants. But some of the girls in the pageant wasn't that bad lah. I think the problem was the pretty ones couldn't talk well *sigh*

heee....fwah in ur workplace ah. Like that how to work?!

hi, sandy is actually very pretty in real life...the camera doesn't do her justice. Probably thats why the judges chose her over the other girls..

actually, im sure most of the girls are pretty irl..but Sandy is clearly one of the least outstanding facial beauty wise amongst the top 5. She wasn't photogenic nor telegenic.. Even the media who has seen most of the contestants irl before (in the prejudging and the semis) didn't even thought her as a possible winner and wrote her off.It is quite obvious that her Q&A won her the crown..She would have made a better 1st runnerup in my opinion..and again,like what i wrote..everyone can be a critic.

Anyway..i aint the judge so i definitely cant say for sure why she was crowned queen..but based on general consensus from the masses and media, most had the same opinion..(like me)

It's has been quite so many years of Miss Singapore Universe seem to me like a failure. Though everyone's a critic but this year's choice is REALLY bad! I reckon some Beautiful mum's contest can produce better results than this pagaent..tsk tsk. Now the whole world may think that Singapore girls really look that plain.

Maybe someone should start a Miss Universe/World school...
