What is a beauty pageant if it is not surrounded with controversies and scandals, right? After all, not all of us watch these pageants just to appreciate the beauty of the candidates. In fact, some of us are even secretly hoping that someone trips or blows the question and answer portion.
Miss Universe is the biggest beauty pageant on Earth, attracting candidates from over 80 countries each year. The organizers have succeeded in showcasing beauties from around the world in a night filled with dramas and surprises. Although they were generally successful, there were some editions that were filled with controversies, both on stage and backstage. Let us take a look at 20 of the juiciest scandals that have enveloped the Miss Universe pageant.
20. Miss Universe Uruguay 2014 and her racy photos
This is not the first time that we have heard about a candidate whose topless or nude photos surfaced on the Internet. In fact, even before the Internet age, some pageant candidates have fallen victim to this. The only difference about Miss Uruguay 2014 is that despite her racy photos released, she was allowed to compete, both by the national pageant organizers and the Miss Universe organization. It sparked controversies after many other candidates in the past were stripped off the title or were barred from competing due to their naked photos.
