MARIA VENUS RAJ: MAJOR MAJOR TRIUMPH
I actually thought Venus has a chance. Other then Australia and Philippines, I did not particularly like the Top 5. I thought Thailand, USA and Guatemala have their chances. Guess the judges saw something I did not see. But as far as appeal and confidence is concerned, Venus really blew the competition. Her statusque figure was one of the best I have shown in the entire evening. Her confidence in the way she handled herself on the ramp was way magnificent. I also liked the pre-pageant hype she made. She commanded attention and everyone took notice. She got the highest marks in the internet ratings. And she even made a bold stand of refusing to go topless for a photoshoot. That's what you call guts. Like many of us expecting, I pretty much think she should have done better but at any cause Venus is still a winner and will always be.
Great timing for a country that's certainly looking for more good news. Congratulations, Venus!
