it makes japanese women proud to see a bombastic gal in a swimsuit showing some confidence over other, eh?

Quite the mix of girls in there: some of them are completely plain, I would even go ad far as to say unattractive. Others however are smokin...(Mima!)

Remember the old stereotype of flat-chested Japanese women?

I know I shouldn't comment, but just can't resist! Never heard of the stereotype and wonder where it came from. Perhaps because Japanese women used to wear kimono and even after they started wearing western clothes they tended to tightly strap in and hide their assets? Anyway, there are women who are not so generously endowed in any race. I have personally, on my wide travels, encountered lots of women of the latter kind. The women pictured here are all well-proportioned and so are million of other Japanese women. Oh, and the subject of picture here is nice, but the issue I take with it is that the people in the background are all cut in half.

I like them all. But Hiroko certainly does have the tastiest color to her.

I think all these girls are doing a great job of hiding their jealousy of Hiroko.

I am astonished as to how they got all of my exes in one hot tub!

Well first they deflated them.

This kind of picture on JT is always sure to get loads of reactions from the lonely wolves. I can almost hear them howl :-)

Oh Lordy, thank God for creating some awesome speci...women. This has made my day.

One of the more printable good things I noticed about Miss Mima is the fact that she's looking at the camera with a saucy glint in her eye, not staring vapidly into the middle distance with her gob open or acting like she's six years old.

Zip! Boioing! Oh I say. I really do say. The best picture for a long long while (breathes on palms)

A very tasty set of totty potage indeed.

The girl in the middle looks scared out of her mind. Where did they find these models? Obviously picked to make someone look even better.

LUCKY WATER AND SURROUNDING AIR! Yowza!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

not that any of the skinny models are unattractive, but even if hiroko's chest was much less prominent, i would still pick her over the others -- but i will say this, she feels more like a model you would see at a dance club rather than a model you would see at a fashion show (which these other girls seem to be).

yeah but just looking the appearance, Hiroko is not the typical japanese girl type~~ even she is not like asian.

I'm not dissin the pic, I'm not into guys physically. Why aren't men jaded like women though. If equality of gender were real guys, we would be makin much more cash.

Not to be crude, but I'm amazed that the asian miss universe winner is the bustiest woman in the pool. You go girl.

Hiroko is the best of the bunch.

Phil: The models are not getting younger, you are just getting older.

Philmoscowitz - Obviously not, considering the minimum age for Miss Universe is 18 years, I believe. As for judging criteria, this explains a little:

"According to the organizers, the Miss Universe contest is more than a beauty pageant: women aspiring to become Miss Universe must be intelligent, well-mannered, and cultured. Often a candidate has lost because she did not have a good answer during the question responses rounds; although this section of competition has held less importance during recent pageants than it did in the twentieth century. Delegates also participate in swimsuit and evening gown competitions.

Currently, the final placement of the finalists is determined by a ranked vote, where each judge ranks each of the final three/five candidates, with the contestant posting the lowest cumulative score becoming the winner. If there is a tie, which often happens when there are even members of the jury, the higher semifinal scores become decisive."

Hopefully that helps your understanding :)

Moderator: She is Miss Universe Japan.

Hiroko definitely takes the cake in this pick. Stunning smile, beautiful skin, and of course a hot body.

Well, the ones on the right look a bit skinny, but who is to complain. I take the pool, with content.
