The Miss Universe 2022 contest, the final of which will take place tomorrow in New Orleans, has already glorified our participant Anna Linnikova before the whole world. And all thanks to the American journalist Jackson Hinkle, whose post on social networks with a photo of a Russian beauty went viral in a matter of minutes.
“We have completely lost touch with reality,” Hinkle said, posting a spectacular collage, in which, together with our Miss Russia 2022, Brian Nguyen, an obese 19-year-old transgender, appeared, winner of the Miss Greater Derry 2022 pageant. in New Hampshire, United States. The fact that Brian is a biological man in the flower garden of the natural female participants did not bother the organizers at all.
However, beauty pageants are not only discredited by transgender people. Winning ladies also really annoy people sometimes. What can I say, enjoy!
JOANNA PALAMARTZUK, “MISS HANNOVER 2017”
Six years ago, when the Germans were already getting used to the new European tolerance with might and main, the organizers of the ordinary beauty review still managed to thunder. Bald winner: what a scandal! The whole city hated 16-year-old Joanna: they say, what did the women of Hanover do if she chose her as the most beautiful of hers? On social networks, the newly minted queen was immediately dubbed “Miss Construction Market”, and the judges were called blind drinkers.
By the way, the participant of the competition spontaneously made a “sub-zero” haircut only two weeks before the final; before that, the girl was the owner of quite decent curls. But someone said that short hair of hers would suit her…
SEFORA IKALABA, MISS HELSINKI 2017
It seems that 2017 turned out to be a lean year in Europe… Thus, in the capital of Finland, rich in natural blondes, an African woman unexpectedly snatched the crown of a beauty pageant. Do Finns prefer dark ones? Or is it political correctness?
In addition to the main title, 19-year-old Sephora got another – “Miss Perfect Body.” By the way, no one argued with this – Ikalaba is a professional fitness trainer. But the height of the girl is not model: only 165 cm.
LILIANA PINKOVSKAYA, “MISSIS WORLD 2021”
The year before last, a competition was held in Odessa with the claim of global coverage of “Mrs. Worldwide 2021”, that is, “around the world.” The organizers assured that the preparation was very serious and lasted a whole year, and the girls were selected very carefully. But what was the disappointment of the public when, among dozens of pretty and natural ladies, the jury members crowned the non-standard Liliana with a crown. “What is this, a competition of plastic surgeons?” They were shocked on the Web, christening the winner after the victim of botched plastic surgery.
For her part, Pinkovskaya or Dra. Liliana, as she calls herself, is a cosmetologist and owner of her own aesthetic medicine clinic. As the lady proudly declares, she first tries all the author’s methods on herself …
HARNAAZ SANDHU, MISS UNIVERSE 2021

Until January 14, 2023, the Indian model proudly wears the title of the most beautiful woman in the universe, although fans of the competition demanded to take it off. For example, the jury chose a completely different winner – thin and sonorous, weighing 50 kilograms. But just a couple of months after the win, Sandhu relaxed so much that she became one and a half times more and went from supermodel to body-positive. The belly and cheeks of her could not “shock” even for the final of “Miss Universe 2022”, where, against the background of chiseled participants, Harnaaz looks especially unsuccessful.
THERE WAS A CASE
The Russians were horrified by the Crimean beauty queen.
To be fair, we also had, well, oh-oh-very mixed results from beauty reviews. So, last year, the audience fell in love with “Ms. Beauty Queen – Crimea 2022”, a dancer, blogger and mother of two children Olga Valeeva. XXL-sized lips, “sleeves” of tattoos and a mane of fiery red hair – it is impossible to forget such a “miss” once you see her.

Rumors about the purchased crown spread at the speed of light. “How much did this Silicon Valley pay you?!” They got angry on social networks. However, the judges, despite the scandal, only shrugged their shoulders: they do not argue about tastes…
What are we headed for?
So, the trend is really obvious, and now, instead of traditional beauties, non-standard girls enter the arena with a brisk step – the more unexpected, the better?
– The competitions are different and the organizers are also different. For example, if we take the “big four” (“Miss Universe”, “Miss World”, “Miss International” and “Miss Earth” – Ed.), then I do not notice any exotic trends: unconditionally charming girls still win , – assures an expert in the field of beauty pageants Anton Paramonov. – The only difference is that now they began to pay more attention to the background, to the life experience of the participants. A silly and beautiful winner is no longer relevant.

According to the expert, those who actually do charity work are now much more likely to win: helping children in Africa or saving people from covid. And one of the winners of recent years, for example, served in the army, and this, of course, added points to him.
– But for some reason, these trends have not taken root in Russia, and in the country they still strive to choose the best models. Therefore, unlike other winners, we may appear to be adherents of traditional values, – says the expert. -However, in my opinion, if a very non-standard participant receives the crown, it is most likely that he bought it. This is especially true for children’s contests, where parents compete with their wallets, and for married women, where rich husbands want to push their wives.
However, there is still a risk that the notorious tolerance catches up with the Big Four. So, last year, the Miss Universe pageant was bought by a transgender from Thailand, a local media mogul (Chakrapong Chakrujuthathib was born a man, but after reaching the age of majority he changed his sex). The new owner intends to turn the program into a reality show, and also allow married women, women in labor, pregnant women and even those who have changed their sex to participate as of next year.
