OPINION :: Let’s be fair to Miss Colombia Paulina Vega

There has been too much chatter with regards to the alleged bad behavior of Miss Colombia Paulina Vega to the point that it has been picked up by the mainstream media in Mexico, Costa Rica, Spain and even in her native Colombia. While when-there-is-a-smoke-there-is-a-fire logic can be applied here, the fact that there are no factual bases about Paulina’s real attitude will reduce these allegations as a total character assassination.

Consider this – days prior the arrival of delegates, rumors spread that she suffered a emotional breakdown and will no longer compete at the Miss Universe pageant. It was of course false news but one can see from the beginning that there are already attempts to derail her participation at the pageant.

 

Videos are spreading across the internet showing Paulina frowning with allegations that she would only smile in front of cameras. Once the attention is away from her, the video allegedly showed that Paulina appears to be irritated or annoyed. This is pure balderdash. Participating at Miss Universe pageant is always stressful for candidates where they get very limited amount of sleep and in many cases with string of activities.

 

Snapping a moment where a candidate frowns or looks bored is not a proof enough to conclude that she has a bad character. Taliana Vargas and Dayana Mendoza for example were once caught in 2008 looking agitated, frowning and constantly checking their watches as they wait to enter the venue for rehearsals. Their facial expressions did not prove that they are women with bad character. Well in fact, the two gorgeous women were the last two standing delegates at Miss Universe 2008.

 

Similarly, what the videos and photos purportedly show about Paulina are those gotcha moments that are in no way reflective of her true character. It is a complete injustice to simply label her as snobbish, fake or someone with a bad character.

 

Paulina is currently embarking on a task that is so difficult – winning Colombia’s second Miss Universe crown. She however is a strong candidate and has been labeled as the possible winner. With her elegant looks and a confident character, she is giving other candidates a run for their money. No wonder that other people have been so resourceful that they have resorted to under the belt tactics.

 

Indeed, the allegations about Paulina’s attitude is just a perfect example of how some people are willing to throw mud just to eliminate those that they think a threats to their causes. In the spirit of fairness, Paulina should not be judged by her alleged “attitude problems”. She should be judged by her overall performance at the prelims and – more likely – at the finals night.

  1. I believe one of the CHI stylist went to Facebook to complain about her attitude. If anything, he/she should know more than us lol.

    • The chi stylist is a colombian who may have been nasty to her like so
      Many male divas are and wants attention. She probably responded like a strong woman should.

    • THATS RIGHT MANY ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT HER ATTITUDE TSK TSK TSK I PITY HER BECAUSE FO HER BAD ATTITUDE MISS COLOMBIA BETTER CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE BEFORE ITS TOO LAT

      • What i dont like abt her is all her answers sound dumb and not sync and answering with the questions given. I thought Miss Universe should consider beauty, brain and behavior. Not just beauty.

  2. now the question is, what does Paulina have got to say about this attitude problem thing? We should hear it straight from horse´s mouth.

  3. judgement based on her catwalks is not enough. She has this bitchy attitude a woman representing the universo cannot have. Is that the kind of example she would set to other Young ladies?

  4. Thanks for this fair and professional article. When someone has talent or in this case beauty and brain is always a target of the jelous people. Not a very smart attitude. Mediocrity has always made “arrogant and envious attacks. GO AHEAD PAULINA. We count on you.

  5. Actually, she looks like that. I asker to take a picture from her and me, she just moved her face like “no now” …what??? all girls around were taking pictures with the fans, why you do not want to…Anyway, probably, it was another bad day for her 🙁

  6. she is so important in this pageant this site making an opinion about her ONLY HER IN THE FRONT PAGE. a good opinion, and all those other girls just jealous making up things about MISS UNIVERSE COLOMBIA. But she doesnt care, she come to win the crown and the title of Miss Universe 2014, not paying attention to the other girls gossips.

    • ITS OKAY IF MISS COLOMBIA HAS BAD ATTITUDE I HAVE HEARD FROM A FRIEND FROM COLOMBIA THAT SHES UNDER DRUGS THATS WHY HER ATTITUDE IS LIKE THAT, WE WILL JUST DONT MIND HER ANYWAY SHE WILL NOT WIN MANY SAID MISS UNIVERSE SHOULD BE CONFIDENTLY BEAUTIFUL WELL SHE IS NOT , MISS PHILIPPINES IS A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE OF CONFIDENTLY BEAUTIFUL, MANY CANDIDATES ARE BEAUTIFUL BUT NOT CONFIDENT RIGHT

  7. How come you take the time and effort to defend one contestant, when there are so many others who are constantly bashed for many reasons? Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Philipines, India…and others get bashed in many forums. Let each contestant fend for themselves; they are big girls, they can handle it.

  8. I completely agree with this article……….A day is divided into 24 hours and expecting someone to be always chirpy and smiling is weird. We are looking for a human Miss Universe and not a robot functioning on artificial intelligence right? All these girls are striving hard and I feel they have the right to have high and low points through the day……….

  9. I am a filipino and i dont believe colombia has a attitude problem..she is one of the most beautiful contestant i have ever scene…bashers can bash all they want to front runner but they will not succeed…if mj will not win…i will be rooting to this girl or venezuela or mexico…no proof at all just some pics of her not smiling
