Cocktails with Miss Universe, sir?


Blog Guy, I don’t see how you can cover Miss Universe year after year. It’s so boring, it never changes!

That’s where you’re wrong. Compared with the old days, the modern pageant is much more complex and demanding.

Really? Like how?

Look at this top photo. Contestants have security drills, learning to leave the stage gracefully in an emergency. These women are being chased by a deranged man with a chainsaw, but they’re just holding on to each other and dancing off the stage. THAT’S poise!

That is impressive. What else do they have to do these days that is so difficult?
