  1. The new winner from Ecuador is tall and beautiful and smart and will surely be in top 20 again this year. Miss universe Ecuador on the other hand is fat and not so pretty. Ecuador has a huge potential f winning Miss World 2016 and is in strong competition with Brazil, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Indonesia, Belgium, Czech Republic, south Africa, Ghana, Philippines (most beautiful Asian), Austria, Russia, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand.

    • Don’t say trash! Miss Ecuador is not fat. Open your eyes well so you can see better. Take a look of her again. She is pretty and classy. Although ecuadorian candidates do not win because these pageants are not about beauty nor intelligence. These pageants is about pre-arrangements for political, economic, and other interests. In many cases the judges are the godfathers of godmothers of some of the candidates. The world knows how beautiful are the ecuadorian candidates. The judges are owners or co-owners of the pageants, other wins because the country they represent have influences. Other candidates win because of the media. The media bombard saying ugly things of the beautiful candidates and good things about the ugly ones. Ecuador has only 15 million inhabitants. Other countries like China, Philippines, Mexico, USA have over 100 million inhabitants and they vote for their candidates. Some of them have won for all these factors or reasons, not because they are pretty. Many winners that I have seen have monkey face, fits face, other have fat nose, witch nose nevertheless they have won. They are not even pretty. Their followers say these ugly ones and ordinary candidates are beauty because they do not know what beauty is. Beauty is beauty. If we are sincere we have to recognize that not all the ones that have won are beautiful and intelligent, AlI I can tell you that the candidates from Ecuador are much much much better than other candidates from other countries. Many candidates that have won the crown have had monkey face, eagle nose, fat nose and with no beauty.
