Can someone explain to me how we got this far into the week without talking about Sunday night's Miss France competition?
Ok, fair enough, maybe not many of you actually watch this show, but it’s totally your loss. You can learn more about French history and culture from watching the Miss France competition with a group of French people than you could learn from every article on wikipedia combined. Dare I say it’s...educational?
Now, before I can go any farther, I have to brag that I actually picked Ms. Reunion as the winner before they had even gotten to the semi finals.
I believe when I saw her strut down the runway for the first time my exact words were:
“That b*tch is in it to win it!”
And win it she did.
Besides learning a little bit of history about all the departments I barely knew existed, I got a chance to hear all the different accents from all the regions of France, see traditional costumes of the regions, and best of all I got to hear FrenchBoy’s family comment on each and every girl and the region they represent. You can’t buy that kind of edu-tainment folks.
My personal comments:
Ms. Guyane and Ms. Guadeloupe had it goin’ on!
Ms. Rhone-Alpes walks like a drunken horse.
Miss Pays de Loire needs a Big Mac.
Miss Paris has zero rhythm.
Don’t believe me? Judge for yourself. And please watch all the way to the end for the fake lip-synching Black gospel choir and the descending drag-queen angel.
