Does Miss Universe has to speak English?
Last Monday night, Miss Mexico Jimena Navarette (22) was crowned the winner at the Miss Universe 2010 contest that took place in Las Vegas, U.S.A.
At the said contest, Miss Indonesia Qory Sandriova (18) did not get any title. Some media assumed that her failure was caused by her inability to speak proper English during the preliminary round of the contest.
However, I don't think that English was the main reason for Qory's failure to win, because Miss Mexico spoke through an interpreter at the event, therefore it is very difficult to say that she can speak English.
