I used to really like to watch this kind of competitions, but that changed a couple years ago. My sister still likes t watch that kind of stuff,
Well, that might explain the changes in the scheduling its a ratings ploy. It just seems kind of odd to me. As for the awards shows a whole lot of them got messed up after various events such as 9/11 and some got pushed back out of respect. But I too remember when the American Music Awards were in January. In fact, they were the last Monday in January. I have to wonder why they were moved maybe it had to do with the fact that so many awards shows seem clumpted together at the beginning of the year, and again a ratings ploy to get better ratings for it.
As for Israel and Pakistan, sorry I dont' remember exactly where they placed in the pageant. I don't even remember if they made the top twelve, I don't think so.
It was miss Israel and miss Lebanon, those two countries are no friends at all... but Miss Lebanon was just mean, look at what she wrote:
To all my supporters and Lebanese citizens, I would like to thank you indeed for your continuous support of Miss Lebanon at the Miss Universe contest …The truth behind the photo: Since the first day of my arrival to participate to Miss Universe, I was very cautious to avoid being in any photo or communication with Miss Israel (that tried several times to have a photo with me) … I was having a photo with Miss Japan, Miss Slovenia and myself; suddenly Miss Israel jumped in, took a selfie, and put it on her social media…this is what happened and I hope to have your full support in the Miss Universe contest.
That was just mean, Miss Israel just wanted to be kind and nice, be friendly! Because she knows both countries are far from being friends. She just wanted to set an example and reach out to Miss Lebanon... I feel so sorry for miss Israel.
