Give the people what they want…

Jimena Navarette Rosete… Miss (pronounced “Meese”) Universo, 2010:

And the obligatory bathing suit photo:

Just in time for the Bicentennial, and probably will make more of a splash than whatever the government plans for next month.

The last Miss Universe from Mexico was Lupita Jones — Maria Guadalupe Jones Garay, from the U.S. border town of Mexicali.  That was in 1991.  Srta. Jones, has made a career of promoting beauty pageants, along the way organizing the first Male Beauty Contest in Mexico, El Modelo México, part of the “Mr. World” circuit, in 1997.

Srta. Navarrette is 22 years old and hails from Guadalajara, a Tapatio sure to have a better image in the press than that of their  ridiculous Cardinal. And, that… I fear… is about all I know about Meese Universo.

And, for those who can’t get enough of these things (yeah, I’m talking about you, Sr. Burro), here’s the video of the final harvest of this year’s crop:

    When you are from Guadalajara you are called a “Tapatio”. The term Tapito is either a small lid or perhaps a reference to the infamous Tepito neighborbood in DF.

    Lupito Jones? Dude, its Lupita.

    And it is Navarrete, guey. Not navarette.

    For someone who claims to do translation work you can’t spell woth shit.

      I also misspelled “pageants”, but you’re right… I can’t spell “woth” shit at night.
