Half the judges were Japanese. Nice to see so many Asians in the top five even though they are a minority in the world.

@Jack, I believe those four women are Latina or AfroLatina. Certainly Asians do live in these nations, especially Peru, however I wonder how you have learned these women are Asian. Was that information in an article, elsewhere?

There is something when first viewing this image [above] that evokes a strong recognition of Euro and American historical 'political correctness' that would take way more than a thousands words to explain properly... almost like it's satire of some sort on that theme...

That such contests are still being held is my only surprise.

Oh yeah I know they're nice people and do raise money for charities and raise social awareness of the environment, rights etc.

But regardless of these points and supporters views, all of these contests are based on the bottom line premise of appealing facial features and body shape.

Right out of 1950's Hollywood.

@browny1 Are you offended by appealing facial features and body shape?

You definitely don't need a thousand words.

But I admit the result was very surprising. A double X chromosomed woman actually chosen for her beauty.

@proxy - lol. Thanks for the reply.

No.

But awarding fame & fortune to those who do possess such under the guise of "doing good for the world" doesn't appeal.

With models we know it's modelling - faces and bodies to show off clothes.

With beauty contests it's marketed as something wonderful - a great achievement.

No.

The whole concept is 50's cringe but as an observation you can rely on the Japanese to pick the scrawny blonde.

You can read the Cabo Verde entrant's mind.

The 3rd runner up and 2nd runner up win the looks categories easily but as others have mentioned that more than half the judges were Japanese so of course they’ll go for the blonde… lol !
