MISS UNIVERSE 2006
The Miss Universe pageant is this Sunday in Los Angeles, CA. If you are a pageant fanatic or fan, you may remember that Miss DR won the title a few years ago. This years representative, Mia Taveras, is wowing the aficionados and is currently ranked in the top 12 by curcuit magazines and other entities.
UPDATE: After all the speculation and guesstimation, Mia Taveras didn't even make the top 20. Though her national outfit was FIERCE, she was beaten out by some tough competition. Miss Japan and Miss Puerto Rico were neck and neck all the way, but Miss Puerto Rico pulled it out in the end. There was another interesting development: latin and central American countries were really on their game this year. Miss Paraguay was also in the top 5, with Miss Mexico, Miss Trinidad and Miss Columbia having made the top 10. Miss Bolivia was in the top 10 as well.
