Thanks for the reminder.

Will most likely record this so I can zip to the SWIMSUIT competition.

I'm sorry, perhaps it was Comcrap Chicago, but that had to be the worst hd broadcast I've seen in a awhile. Watched 5 mins, if that, when they selected the final 10. Way pixelized when the cameraa zoomed in. Was if just me?

Nope - it looked absolutely terrible OTA, too. I had to turn it off after just a few minutes, because I just couldn't stand it anymore. I just left it on long enough to see the contestants.


With two subchannels and all those flashing lights, it was virtually unwatchable.

If you didn't see it, you really didn't miss much.


Lots of dogs this year, IMO. At least facially.


Not just the women, but the show in general just isn't geared towards types like myself anymore.

This show really doesn't cater to types like me anymore.

The top ladies weren't dogs. Some weren't super hot, but I wouldn't call them dogs.


They didn't filter the SD on the contestants too much. I saw lots of pimples underneath the make-up this year.

I didn't see the finals, so I suppose the worst ones could've gotten weeded out by then - but I still didn't care all that much for the whole crop in general.


Some of the countries which traditionally put some gorgeous women out there put out some really below-average-looking ones this year, I thought.

The picture quality on Telemundo HD here in San Francisco was great!! Better than the local NBC HD channel! Telemundo also showed a one hour special in HD featuring all the hispanic contestants!

Nah I know what he means. I think dog is the wrong word but this is Miss Universe. Some of those faces were nice but not hot IMO...


As far as Miss USA goes, I know the Donald loves blondes and it is a painted picture that a USA gal is to be blonde and blue eyes but I say it's time for a brunette and dark eyes to represent the ole USA...


As one of those typical blonde hair blue eyed males, I am attracted to the other side of features...


It seems every contest is the same old L.A looking blonde. I think there are many beautiful USA woman with darker features and I would like to see a change...


And to be honest, those latin woman are gorgeous. I think a USA version of the same would blow them away...


Just a thought from a guy who loves the darker features... I think the L.A. blonde is played out as well as the Texas same old big blonde hair look...


Let's find the real U.S. babes for the next Universe contest. Not that there are some beach babe blondes out there but a latin beach babe rules..

After watching the playback of this recording, I was appalled at the terrible PQ of this broadcast on both OTA and satellite.

I am also disappointed in the way American Network Television censors the camera shots, when it comes to the swimsuit competition.

They only allow facial closeups and glimpses of body shots from a distance. What a ripoff!

Apparently you haven't been watching the Miss USA contest through the last decade. If anything, the blond-hair blue-eye beauties have been left out of the parade. Here are a few of the recent ethnic winners:


2008




2007




2003




2002




2000




...and not just the winners. Check out the top five from the 2008 Miss USA contest. Two of the five were beautiful Latinas....with accounts of Miss Mississippii being just "too-over-the-top" sexy to win. You can see the video of the top five in my upload at:

What does "They didn't filter the SD on the contestants too much" mean?


The women of the 2008 Miss Universe were clearly more attractive in my opinion than this years pageant. Check out the 2008 final five I uploaded, and see if you agree:
