Miss Universe Drops the Ball ... and the Crown

8/24/2009 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It wouldn't be a pageant if something didn't fall to the ground -- but this year during the Miss Universe competition, it wasn't one of the contestants ... it was the crown!

Miss Universe: Click to watch
Last year's Miss Universe, Venezuela's Dayana Mendoza, dropped it at the worst possible moment: When crowning the new beauty queen, Stefania Fernandez, also of Venezuela.

So what? It's live TV and what do you expect when two people are jumping up and down? Besides, at least we didn't have to look at or hear that awful Carrie Prewhore and how Biblically correct she is. How did the Universe pageant ever carry (no punintended) on without the theatrics of Prewhore? Let me guess, she was busy fending off the wind, right?

yeah....and?    

My gosh when we will finally have an end to these pagents? They are so out dated. The rating are tanking for reasons. Do we really need to parade ladies around on the stgae like it was 1956?

It is so sick to see women like this, who need this type of validation to feel like someone.

Its worse with the CHILD pagents. Those tools those poor kids have for partents...

I WAS WAITING FOR THAT TO HAPPEN ,YOU WOULD THINK WITH ALL THE TECHNOLOGY TODAY THERE WOULD BE A PROPER FITTING CROWN. ON EVERY SHOW I HAVE SEEN THE WINNER IS HOLDING IT ON HER HEAD FOR DEAR LIFE.

when joan rivers won celebrity apprentice over annie duke, i knew trump couldn't be trusted for a fair judgement in any contest. likewise, when miss iceland came out dead last in the swimsuit competition i knew the fix was in again. as for mel, maybe the reason more black women aren't in the top 5 is because they shouldn't be. why does everything in life boil down to some sort of politically correct drivel. i thought miss ethiopia was quite attractive but still wouldn't have put her in the top ten.

to vicky borjas, you need to take a few more english lessons before trying to post something of english speakers to read. i can not even understand 95% of what you are trying to say. learn english or go away.
