On that window thing on the front of the TV. Probably in 2012. Among a squillion ads.

I wonder if the tv companies realise how many people ain't watching the box nowadays. I only watch the movie channels. I don't even bother trying to watch the news anymore. Ads ads ads ads ads

I agree ads suck and they are phased between tv1/2 and 3 so when you change channels you still get blardy ads.
Nothing wrong with miss nz/world universe completions screening on tv.
When I was a young fella we would get a few crates of beer in and watch them.
Although the comments were not always pc.
Miss Venezuela was always a stunner.

Earlier this year the Miss World Pageant was on TV2 I believe, in the early morning hours, 2 or 3 AM. The timing is indicative of how the popularity of beauty pageants has declined.

Yes, I did record it and watched it with SWMBO. We used the FFWD button and mainly watched the cultural presentations. The event was held in South Africa and the ethnic singing and dancing was a joy to watch, also the beautiful SA panoramic scenery. To answer the inevitable: The swimsuit event was there but it was no big deal, maybe it is my age, LOL.

What I found annoying was the brevity of seeing each woman; there were around 150 contestants so the camera would flick from one to another every half a second or so it seemed. Some of the women certainly did not fit the stereotype of the "dumb bimbo" but were intelligent, talented, humanitarian and with personalities that matched their physical beauty - but little time was given to these women due to the number of other contestants.

These events are politically biased, imho (along with events like the Nobel Prizes and Academy Awards). The host country is sure to get a contestant in the top 5, and other top contenders reflect choices that will appease those in the world wide viewing audience.

I used to like those shows, it is a nice way of seeing other countries culture and good harmless fun. And they want to save the world !
A key question is do less people watch tv because of the crap that is on or is it that people watch less tv so they can only to put crap on ?

I watch way less than I used to when younger because the standard of programs is so low

I'd watch the Miss Universe show, but it's a lot more realistic to look at cows in a paddock.

I couldn't understand why any normal heterosexual male wouldn't want to watch some nubile young chicks parading in a swim suit.

You possibly move in different age groups than I do. TV is the panacea of the masses.

Most daughters I know are not "normal heterosexual male"s.

No, no I didn't. The mere fact that the thread was still active gave me the impression that no one had found the time yet. :xmouth:

"The five finalists hail from Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Kosovo, Australia and Venezuela."

Australia huh? - wait until she opens her mouth :) :)

Miss Venezuela was the fairest of them all, again.

Venezuela, a beauty-obsessed South American country, has won the Miss Universe pageant six times.

Happy now, ligh? :)

Yeah a bad weekend all round for the Aussies. Losing the Bledisloe, the Ashes and Miss Universe. There will be some serial whinging going on over there for a while

Yes, I saw it on the news before I actually watched it with other people.

What kind of politics is it when Venezuela ladies keep getting crowned? And how many of these beauties went under the knife?
