Miss Venezuela Pageant Feels Economic Pinch

By Wyatt Earp | September 18, 2009

And speaking of pinch, I’d like to pinch Miss Universe 2009: Stefania Fernandez from Venezuela.

CARACAS – Despite a second consecutive victory at this year’s Miss Universe, even Venezuela’s hugely successful beauty factory is feeling the global pinch.

The local “Miss Venezuela” organization — which has landed the South American nation more international pageant titles than any other country — announced on Wednesday it had slashed the number of national competitors to 20 from 30.

“We have had to tighten our belt a bit too,” said Joaquin Riviera, organizer of the annual Miss Venezuela competition, which is wildly popular and draws huge TV audiences. (H/T – )

Tighten our belt? That shouldn’t be a problem for the ultra-hot Stefania.

    They obviously can not afford to buy that poor girl any clothes. She can come to my place and I’ll see to it that she gets outfitted properly. It might take some time for me to procure the proper measurements, however.

    I think you need a Chickipedia intervention.

    “We have had to tighten our belt a bit too” <<– There's a joke somewhere in that statement.

    Well, “something” is tightening, and it ain’t a belt… ;-) She’s a cutey!

    As long as it’s not a chastity belt…

    If the Miss Venezuela pageant is “feeling the pinch,” it’s probably only a matter of time before Hugo Chavez nationalizes it too…

    Joated – Oh, to be a tape measure!

    Mrs. Crankipants – hey, I can quit anytime I like . . .

    Mark – My pants grow tight. Does that count?

    Proof – The line forms here!

    Old NFO – Absolutely. Definitely a hottie.

    Idler – Amen to that.

    Wes S. – The next thing you know, all of the contestants will have Castro beards.

    She’s about a 1…… On the married guy scale:

    1- Take her home, toss on couch, ask wife to keep score

    2- Take to a hotel and be discreet

    3- Wouldn’t be worth the legal hassel if you got caught.
