Congratulations _____________! (insert name here) You are now the new Miss Universe (or World, or Earth or International!) *host crowns the winner* *everyone goes home happy*

However, that's only one part of the story. 

Ever since I watched that episode, Indecent Proposal, on a Filipino TV show, MMK (Maalalaala Mo Kaya), my view about beauty queens and beauty pageants have since changed. It was always in the back of my mind that contestants of a beauty show slept with sponsors or judges to help them secure the crown. I was gobsmacked, when after watching the episode trailer, it's true! It happens. God, what else is new? Beauty contestants not only displaying their half-naked bodies for all the world to see, but also selling their dignity and reputation in exchange for a coveted crown. 

I will never look at beauty queens the same way again.

I will leave the link below. (It's not a problem if you don't understand a thing (a plus if you can), however the video speaks for itself)

(Note: MMK is a drama TV show, wherein viewers are invited to write about their true life stories to the TV host, and if your story is picked, then you get to watch your favorite actors play out your autobiography. The sender remains anonymous.)
