Miss Universe 2006

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingNext Sunday will see the hosting of Miss Universe 2006 in Los Angeles. Shivern Peters was the first person from the Grenadines to capture a Miss SVG title when she won in 2003.Since then she has won the Miss Carival show held in the same year and will now cary the hopes and dreams of the Vincentian public to the Miss Universe Show.Beauty Shows must be really hard to judge eh? After all different cultures have differing views on what defines beauty.In shows like Miss Universe etc you have a process of elimination until it comes down to the final 3.I often wonder how the decisions are made especially when you see some gorgeous women not making the cut.

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingFinally,I caught this extract from an interview where Shivern was responding to how she would define the title if she were to be crowned. This is what she had to say "Other than for the obvious selfish reasons I would want to be crowned Mis Universe because I would like the people of the world to know that small countries of the world such as mine could compete on the world stage.I would define the title in my own terms by bringing awareness to the plight of persons with HIV/AIDS in the developing world especially the West Indies,it is a serious problem that can never have too much attention."Y'all know how I feel about HIV/AIDS education already so those words sound just fine to me.Anyway,Good luck Shivern from the And Still I Rise blog.Give it your best shot and represent SVG to the best of your abilities

Good luck to her and SVG. I havn't even checked to see if Barbados wasting their time and money again this year on Miss Universe. Let's hope that they are ready for another woman of color.
 
Wow, she's gorgeous! I couldn't agree more about how difficult it must be for the jugdes to make their decisions for these competitions. Most of these girls have their own unique features that make them beautiful... but those features can't be compared to another girl's. I'm glad I'm not one of those poor judges.
 
Nice looking woman. Brings back memories of the pleasant day I spent in Bequia last year despite the rain.
 
She looks real nice, good luck to her. My thoughts on this very same issue are posted on my site.
 
Hopefully the Caribbean will snach the crown this year.
 
Nice looking lady.....good luck on her quest
 
very nice, i'll support her as well but ya dun kno the top 5 always include the US, at least one south american girl and somebody from russia or something so so only two spots open
 
I too would like somebody from the islands win. It does seem that exotic women have been fairing better than the typical and outdated ideas of beauty.


Peace
 
My God. She's so beautiful. Good to have a beauty queen with some sense of social responsibility. You go girl!
 
Hi

She is okay.

BTW, who has won yesterday.

Cheers

Puerto Rico won. She was hot, and surprisingly, Japan was 1st runnerup. Japan NEVER has a good one, but this year's was good, and not "out there" like the Asians often are.
Switzerland didn't deserve placing as high as she did. Her answer about a sister was lame. USA was kinda lucky to have ranked as high as she did. I hated her hair--it was much classier in the Miss USA pageant. The hair-dye job looked like Britney Spears...not good at all.
 
Hi Janet

Thanx. lol :) Britney Spears will sucide if she reads your thot for her.

I believe India was on 17th. I have not even seen her. I hope not so bad.

Cheers
Nidhi
