The Best and Worst Of 2012

As the year 2012 is about to end and as we approach 2013, it is good to look back to what had transpired throughout the year and learn and be inspired from them as we look forward to a new beginning in the new year. We will have a review through a list of the good times and bad times, the beautiful and not so beautiful things we shared throughout the year as Charles Dickens said in his Tale of Two Cities, "it was the best of times, the worst of times." Surely it is an interesting and unforgettable year full of surprises, controversy, losses, victories and so much more.

Miss Universe 2012 My Suggested TWITTER Questions

This is the first time in the history of the Miss Universe beauty pageant that fans from all over the world can post a final question for the Miss Universe 2012 via Twitter. One lucky fan question will be asked a Top 5 finalist which is broadcasted LIVE to worldwide audience. These are some of the questions I posted on Twitter: 

Can you imagine a world without Internet or phones? 
Can you imagine a world without a gun? 
In light of recent events, should there be a need to regulate and control the use of guns and other weapons? 

I want the new Miss Universe 2012 to answer this question:

If you can speak on behalf of United Nations, how can you convince China to surrender its claim over Spratly Islands?   

Miss USA Olivia Culpo Is Miss Universe 2012!

What a Coincidence! 

Miss Universe 2012, Olivia Culpo of USA!

Las Vegas, Nevada -  20 year old Olivia Culpo representing the United States won the Miss Universe 2012 at a glittering and holiday spirit filled and themed event held at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas Wednesday, December 19.  She has a difficult time beating 88 other equally stunning but tough contestants from around the world to win the title. It was USA's eighth Miss Universe title last won in 1997 by Brook Mahealani Lee of Hawaii and the first one in 15 years - the longest drought of USA ever. 1st runner up is the equally beautiful and stunning Janine Tugonon of the Philippines who gave the best answer of the night, 2nd runner up is Irene Isser of Venezuela, 3rd runner up is Renae Ayris of Australia and 4th runner up is Gabriela Markus of Brazil. Miss Photogenic goes to Kosovo, Diana Avdiu, Best In National Costume goes to China, Diana XU Ji Dan and Miss Congeniality goes to Guatemala, Laura Godoy. The celebrity judges include  Pablo Sandoval,  Nigel Barker, Diego Boneta, Scott Disick, Brad Goreski, Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Ximena Navarette, Kerri Walsh Jennings, Lisa Vanderpump and Claudia Jordan.

          It is interesting to note that 39 years ago in 1973, it was also the Philippines and USA as the last two women standing with Philippines taking home the crown and USA as the first runner up but this time its the opposite. Their hairstyle are also opposite each other - Amanda Jones and Janine Tugonon have a ponytail and hair down while Margie Moran and Olivia Culpo had buns. Philippines won in ancient Herod Atticus Theater in Athens, Greece and first worldwide telecast of the beauty pageant and first to be hosted outside the continental America while USA today won in a modern and posh Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. My favorite contestant for the crown is Tamar Shedania of Georgia but she went unplaced so I like her to join and compete in Miss Earth!

MISS UNIVERSE 2012: Watchful Eyes Best 20 Show Girls In Las Vegas Holiday!

          I think for the first time in the history of Miss Universe, it was held in December, the happiest and fun filled time of the year and what is the perfect event to make the holiday season merrier and festive than Miss Universe. This year the most prestigious beauty pageant of all goes back to Las Vegas more specifically Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino after it hosted the competition back in 2010. I know Las Vegas and Planet Hollywood will surely kindle the fire of the season's spirit - making the event an unforgettable experience. This is second time Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino accepted to host the event while it is the fourth time for Las Vegas where they graciously welcome 89 gorgeous women from around the world to compete for the much coveted Diamond Nexus Lab crown. Leila Lopes of Angola, Miss Universe 2011 will crown her successor on December 19.
          A lot of contestants has some stunning images posted online before they arrive in Las Vegas and even during the time they won their respective national titles, they look absolutely stunning and beautiful that some fans take note of them as early favorites and contender for the crown however upon their arrival in Las Vegas, there are some changes and differences that make this competition even more exciting and suspenseful. Some contestants exceed others expectation while some are on their radar to watch out for. They even look so prepared, warm and impressive as the competition heats up and after I watched the preliminary competition on Thursday, I came up with my list of favorites and who I think will have a chance of at least making the cut. I observe that there are only quite a few gowns which I think are fabulous and stand out enough to have my good impression because most of them are just an imitation of previous contestant's gowns lacking in originality, creativity and innovation. What the contestants lack of fabulous gown, they made it up with an elegant classy presentation oozing with sex appeal and spell binding charm. Their overwhelming beauty and regal bearing with this gown is enough to make an impressive presentation. The strongest asset of these women lies in the swimsuit competition where they can pride themselves with those curvaceous figures, flawless skin and long legs complimented with great catwalk skills, runway attitude and confidence which include good command of stage, flirtatious moves, seductive pose and facial gestures.   
          With these things on mind looking at these incredibly gorgeous women, I came up with this list of best 20 contestants for this year's holiday-filled Miss Universe 2012. Although I must admit, it is difficult to choose which one will make it into my elite list, here now are my final chosen lovely women for the crown with their scores. Hope you enjoy!
