Hay, finally, after a week, breaking promises sucks!

Jimena Navarrete of Mexico won the 2010 Miss Universe crown last Monday night (Tuesday morning in the Philippines) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV. She defeated (in proper order): Jamaica, Ukraine, Australia, and the Philippines (with our very own Maria Venus Raj). This is Mexico’s first victory in 19 years. The last one was in 1991 when Lupita Jones brought the crown.

Meanwhile, instead of Miss Mexico making an impact in the pageant, our very own Venus Raj was the center of the attention, bshe was the crowd drawer during the said pageant and is the biggest favorite of the pageant, making her #1 in web surveys, but one answer turned off all the expectations (The guy who asked Ms. Raj is actor William Baldwin):

BALDWIN: “What is the worst mistake you’ve ever done?”

RAJ: “You know what, sir, in my 22 years of existence, I can say that there’s nothing major, major, I mean, problem that I’ve done in my life because I’m very confident with my family, with the love that they are giving to me. So, thank you so much that I’m here. Thank you, thank you so much!”

And the phrase “major, major” became popular among the youth as the phrase, as some predicted, would even defeat Jejemon, a word popularized last May, as the word of the year.

Even her answer was wrong, she bagged the 4th runner up. as it is the highest place of the Philippines in 10 years. The last highest place of Philippines in MU was in 1999. when beauty queen turned host Miriam Quiambao won the 2nd runner up.

BONUS: Here’s a video that became a major, major hit in 1 week. With over two million views, this video is about four guys expressing their feelings about Venus Raj. Here are designer Veejay Floresca and Martin Bautista, along with traveller Lex Librea and real estate agent Aleq Africa to show you what I really meant:

More headlines to come. In just a short while, we’ll feature Nonoy Baclao, Allan Caidic, and Rolando Menoza. So sit back and relax.
