Can someone please explain to me why someone from Nigeria, which is about as destitute of a country as one can find, that has a GNP of about $300 gets picked as "Miss World"?
Well, lets think VERY deeply about this higher grade question...
1) Maybe, JUST maybe, she's beautiful.
2) She might have brains
3) I'm taking a guess here, but she MIGHT have impressed the judges, as well as many people around the world.
4) She might have a great personality
5) And she just might have the character in her of a Miss World.
I really don't see what the GNP of a country has to do with whether an individual of that country wins Miss World or not.
Oh, and by the way, I'm sure the GNP of Nigeria isn't $300. Nigeria is actually one of the richest countries in Africa, because of it's oil resources.

She's cute for a little child. A bit on the thin side, about 30 pounds, but cute. Pity they don't have women in these contests. I still wouldn't waste my time watching it, but the though of proclaiming a child as the most beautiful woman in the world is absurd. And yes, even when I was a hormone controlled boy of 19, I thought women only became beautiful at 30. The truth of that has becaome rather more evident as the years pass.
I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.
