Being a Miss Universe might be a dream of many girls. But the road to worldwide recognition is never easy. The candidates need to go through many different stages which means different challenges. In the final round, they must show their physical beauty and prove their intellectual qualities as well. Because winners are gracefully beautiful, people sometimes ignore how smart they are. Winners should deserve their titles. “Beauty, beauty, beauty. It’s all about beauty. But read their bios. Every single one of them is smart, too,” the former judge told Forbes.
It’s been years since the moment Miss Universe Winners were crowned. How have these beauty queens changed? Some queens started a professional career in the industry, modeling, for instance. Meanwhile, some decided to stay out of the spotlight and have taken care of their families. Anyway, they all have embraced their beauty to prove how they deserve the title.
