ANALYSIS :: Why Miss Brazil Isis Stocco did not win as expected


There is absolutely no reason why one should believe that Miss Brazil Isis Stocco will not win the Miss International crown. Her sheer elegance and unmistakable charisma backed-up by her curvaceous body and glamorous face made her a formidable contestant in the competition. But something happened in the last stretch of the competition.

It all started when Isis noticed that some of her personal things were missing. Her roommate is Miss Cuba Heidy Fass. So naturally, Heidy became a suspect. All throughout the incident, Isis remained calm and focused until the day when the finals night nears. Isis gown was ripped and her bikini went missing. That was the third incident for Isis and could be the last straw. Instead she remained diplomatic. The Miss International Organization decided to separate the two roommates.

Isis Stocco borrowed this white gown from Miss Paraguay

The gown of Isis for the finals night was supposed to be gold in color and was meant to represent the Iguazu Falls. That’s because for her and for the Brazilians in general, the iconic waterfall is as precious as gold. Sadly, part of the gown was ripped off rendering it useless. What was supposed to be a grand celebration of Brazilian natural resource was turned into a non-functional heap of cloth and accessories. The white gown used by Isis during the finals night was borrowed from Miss Paraguay. The same is true with her swimsuit.

While the main suspect of all the mess was Miss Cuba, the other side of the story was that Isis did it herself so as to gain attention and sympathy. It must be noted though that sabotage in beauty pageants is not new. In Miss World 1994, Miss Philippines Caroline Subijano’s gown was stolen and she had to wear probably the worst gown ever in the history of Big4 Pageants. In Miss World 2005, Miss Puerto Rico Ingrid Marie Rivera’s gown was pepper-sprayed and in Miss Universe 2010, Miss Australia Jesinta Campbell’s gown was planted with pins hurting the poor beauty.

Still, Isis managed to be in the Top 10 but should have placed higher if she used that fabulous gold gown. Her borrowed gown from Miss Paraguay was plain and boring. Also, there was that psychological effect that will eventually take its toll. While she was calm and diplomatic, Isis’ confidence was definitely rattled. The Miss International competition is already nerve wracking and the last thing that a contestant needs is further worries.

Did the incident prevent Isis from winning? In a way, yes. Imagine losing something personal – and nowadays indispensable – as your mobile phone only to find it out later that someone hid it in the toilet? Yes, that is one of the three incidents that shook the inner confidence of Isis. In winning, confidence is the key. The contestants have to look comfortable and self-assured. This was not the case for Isis. The series of unfortunate events certainly did affect her.


  1. Another sorry alibi for a website that can’t get it right. How about just saying Ms. Venezuela deserved the win? Sash Factor got it right again.

    • Nobody is discussing the obvious winner of Venezuela. But Isis been excluded from the Top5 was bizarre. And all the incidents noticed were true. Herself have confirmed on her social medias.

      • They made a prediction in favor of Brazil so obviously they wanted to be more credible but Sash Factor turned out to be the one.

        • I know. Missosology can be using this as an excuse for their wrong prediction, but nothing told on the article is a lie. And Isis should obviously be one of Edymar’s runners-up.

  2. The Miss Brazil deserved to have entered the top 3. I think Brazil should not submit candidates for this contest. A contest that does not like of Brazil. A contest where a miss assaults another and is not punished. The Miss Brazil had a dress destroyed was impaired, it is much more beautiful than some that are there in this final top . An organization that allows this kind of thing, does not deserve a Miss Brazil. We do not need decadent contest to prove that we have the most beautiful women in the world. The Brazil never send other candidate for this contest. What they did with Miss Brazil, and the behavior of Miss International Organization, it was criminal.

  3. Helloooo beeyatches…..And Miss Venezuela won again? And she is fuggly ordinary beauty…I’m tired of fuggly Venezuelans winning beauty contests. And they all can’t speak English…. they always have this excuse of “no engleesh”, LOL. And the translators make their answers sound better for the dumb judges. How about giving credit to those who come from non- English speaking countries who try to speak English? If Venezuelans are that smart, why are they still enslaved by Maduro? And remember Chavez? Luckily, that guy has to die of natural cause they were not able to get rid of him either. Grocery shelves are empty in Caracas.. no food to buy but lots of contestants for every beauty contest, LOL. Plenty of money to train contestants but no food on the table. Ok beeyatches, bring it on!

    • Too much hate in your comments. It’s true that we Venezuelans are suffering many problems. but it has nothing to do with the beauty pageants. This year Venezuela was far and away the best candidate. It is not our fault to have the most beautiful girls in the world. Regarding the use of English, you may be right, but speaking English is not necesary to win a pageant.
