    Those mug shots have celebrity lookalikes:

    Angola = Angelina Jolie
    Aruba = Lorelai Gilmore
    Canada = that women from "Touched by an Angel"
    Sri Lanka - Eva Mendez
    St Lucia - Debbie Allen

    And Miss Puerto Rico takes it. Unbelievable.
    Shows you what I know about men's taste in women ;D

    The SoCal look is not exclusive to SoCal, anymore, not since fake tans and peroxide. :)

    Not that I'm a history buff when it comes to these pageants but don't the Latin American women do quite well on here? Didn't Miss Costa Rica or something like that win it a few years ago?

    FYI - Miss USA's dress was designed as a challenge on "Project Runway" this season.
    The two designers who created it - one runs a pageant shop in Oklahoma and the other has been designing clothes for Barbie for 10 years.

    Carry on ...

    Holy crap, Carrie, I completely forgot about that! I love Kayne, and I love Robert (the two designers).

    I'm a Project Runway freak. Sorry.

    Wasn't going to bring this up but I saw that episode of Project Runway. I'm a friggin reality TV junkie and I need help!

    HAVE NO SHAME, Tommy!

    I Tivo it, and I talk about it with one of our (completely heterosexual, male) part-timers every week.

    Love Project Runway!

    Project Runway is nothing to be ashamed of. It's a quality show.

    Same with "Tabloid Wars", but I digress.

    Yeah, you see, I also happen to enjoy most of the other Bravo reality series as well.

    Not trying to threadjack here.

    (goes to look up pics of the Miss Universe winner).

    Good move. That guy makes John Basedow, excuse me, fitness personality John Basedow, almost seem heterosexual.

    Interesting collection of exotic beauties.

    But it had to be awfully uncomfortable for whoever the woman was, with the Queer Eye guy.

    During the swimsuit part, he talked about one girl "having a wedgie" while she did her thing on the stage.

    I only wish Elaine Benes had been there, with a wry grin on her face, to say, "At least it wasn't atomic."

    BTW Miss Mexico was a knockout.

    Based on the swimsuit shot I saw on the AP wire last week, I was rooting for Miss Poland.

    Never thought I 'd ever say that.
