A bit of thought
By Felcor G. Morandarte
In the concluded Miss Universe 2010, there is something I noticed particularly regarding the questions given to the 5 finalists.
The type of question given to Miss Venus Raj is completely different and a tough one. It is tough in the sense that she needs to recollect a particular event in her life to answer the question.
Whereas, the questions given to the other four finalists are of similar type. They are of social relevance, current and very common issues and only requires personal opinion, thereby given them the chance to freely express their ideas.
Please take a look at the questions:
1) Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete: What effect is unsupervised Internet use having on today’s youth?
2) Miss Australia Jesinta Campbell: What role should the government play in regulating potentially offensive clothing?
3) Miss Jamaica Yendi Phillipps: Is the death penalty acceptable and why?
4) Miss Ukraine Anna Poslavska: How do you feel about full-body scanners in airports?
5) Miss Philippines Venus Raj: What is one big mistake you’ve made and what did you do to make it right?
In one occasion, a former U.S. President was also asked, the same question with that of Venus Raj. How did the former president reply?…. “I wish you’d give me this written question ahead of time ….” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVGgtQR02WA
The question given to Miss Venus Raj made her isolated from the contest therefore loses the chance to win the Miss Universe 2010 crown. How come among the 5 finalists, she was the only one with a different type of question ?
