Eye For Beauty Blog Most Robbed Beauty of 2014 is Miss Universe Mexico

I wouldn't exactly call 2014 the "Year of Shocks" in terms of results. In most of the pageants I followed, the winner was always there amongst the favorite. In terms of national pageants, I'd say that the favorites did well. Rolene Strauss won Miss South Africa, Nia Sanchez won Miss USA, both winners in the Philippines were favorites, and other countries like France, India, Colombia and Mexico all crowned girls who were marked as front-runners. I predicted the winners of Miss World, Miss Universe, and Miss Earth. The only one of the big four pageants that produced a shock winner, or at least a few raised eyebrows, was Miss International.

The year's biggest shocks came from the inability of most of the pageant organizations to get their acts together. Miss Earth is still in the Philippines and is still trying to get rid of the corruption stigma after the Russian scandal a few years ago? Did a home victory help? Miss World was supposed to be the best festival ever in three countries, but turned into a low key event. There were very few events leading to the finale, but at least they were all classy, and it was evident that the organizers are trying to create some energy on stage at the finale. Miss International is apparently under new ownership, but the pageant is still a looong snoozefest. For the most part of 2014, we all wanted the real Miss Supranational to stand up... and eventually it did. The best effort from an organization came from Miss Grand International - it really is a pageant to watch. Their results left a bitter taste in my mouth though. And the worst effort: from Donald Trump's Miss Universe Organization. In an unprecedented move they failed to put on a show in 2014, moved it to 2015, and called it by it's anniversary while claiming it is actually still the 2014 edition. But will there be another one this year? Nothing is certain anymore with Miss Universe - their credibility has pretty much gone down the drain.

As for results, a few favorites were actually left out. The biggest shock of the year:

#1: Miss Universe Mexico, Josselyn Garciglia

I have liked Josselyn since she was crowned Miss Universe Mexico and she had a long time to prepare for this competition. She was crowned way more than a year before the Miss Universe Pageant and she had months of intense preparation. When she arrived in Miami, I thought she was smart by playing it safe for the better part of the competition. She always looked and ready to be in the top 15, but didn't try too hard to stand out.

On the night of the preliminaries, I was absolutely stunned. She looked spectacular in her evening gown. It was definitely one of the top 2 performances of the night - a toss up between her and Colombia. In the swimsuit competition, I was not the biggest fan of her hairdo, but her body was just absolutely phenomenal and her walk was amazing. Miss Universe is a stage competition and I think Josselyn Garciglia can truly call herself the MOST ROBBED BEAUTY OF 2014.



  1. I completely agree. She is a Stunning and intelligent Beauty who deserved to be at lest in the top 5.

  2. I have to agree with you. Along with Miss Dominican Republic, they are the two most robbed at Miss Universe. I love Mexico's evening gown presentation.

  3. Completely Agree, She has Brains an Absolutely Stunning!!

  4. I am Agree , She has Brains and she is Absolutely Stunning!!
