  1. OMG, are you serious? After what happened in Miss Universe 2007, the organization still want to held the pageant in Mexico again? The pageant was held in Mexico twice and the audience booed twice. I don’t know why Mr. Trump still decided to have the pageant in Mexico once more time.

    • beside the fact of the booing, Mexico has been a great host!

    Very pretty, but doesn’t anyone think she looks like Miss PR 2009 Mayra Matos?

    Anyway, it’s too early to consider her a serious contender for MU2012, imo. I’m curious to see what happens in Miss Colombia next week, lots of gorgeous candidates in that group this year! And Miss Venezuela is gorgeous this year, a very natural, fresh beauty, which is a welcomed change for Venezuela (I’m not usually a fan). Vivan las latinas!
