Miss Japan WIns Miss Universe, It's Only Been 50 Years!

Donald Trump said it best with "She is an amazing champion, an amazing woman and I hear that they go totally insane in Japan, so that's good.”

Japan is going nuts only because it's the first time in 50 years that Miss Japan has won Miss Universe. There were a couple of mishaps in the competition though. 2006 Miss Universe nearly dropped the 250,000 tiara while trying to place it on the head of the winner, Riyo Mori.

Miss USA Rachel Smith, took a tumble during the evening gown competition, so there goes her chances. And to top it off, she was jeered by the Mexican crowd as she began her interview.

Between the couple of mishaps and the contestants starting to act like humans (getting busted or exposed for this or that) I am beginning to think it might be interesting enough to actually waste some TV time on.
