Miss Venezuela and Miss Mexico are cute (though Miss Mexico should be stoned for that corset, or whatever it is. I don't mind cleavage, but that thing makes it look baaaaad), but there are no stunning beauties. At least not here. Actually, I don't think there have been any for a couple of years now.

Wonder what Miss Croatia looks like. We had beautifull girls (Anica Martinovic, Fanny Capalia - hoooooot), but the last few years they're plain as well.. :\
lol Maybe it's just me...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is not the real miss Belgium, I think. Miss Belgium, Ann Van Elsen, did not want to go to the contest in protest against the sentencing of several people to death by stoning, so our country decided to send the runner-up instead.

You're right. The pics in this thread are of Sylvie Duclos or something. She was the runner-up.
