Miss Earth? What the heck is Miss Earth?
Yet another beauty contest of course!
But this one doesn’t get such negative press coverage as the others – not that it’s not known mind you – but because all the beautiful young ladies involved are committed to preserving the environment. Hence the name of the beauty pageant: Miss Earth.
Quite how these sexy young ladies are gonna solve the world’s environmental problems - such as global warming, deforestation, overpopulation and pollution - ain’t made clear. But hey, it doesn’t really matter does it? At least they have their hearts – and bodies – in the right place.
As for Indonesia’s contestant - Yelena Setiabudi - she was one of the first to show up in the Philippines for this year’s event.
And standing 5 feet 6 inches, this 21-year-old head turner is said by many to be one of the favorites to win the contest that takes place from November 9-27.
I’ll certainly be cheering her on. And I hope you will too.
