Congratulations to Mexico’s Jimena Navarrete, the winner of Miss Universe 2010, and to host Natalie Morales for speaking to her in Spanish! Isn’t she lovely? Now get thee to the after-party! Other host Bret Michaels: “I’m glad they’re taping this, because I’m not going to remember any of it.” Olé.
It’s important, though, to recognize the night’s complete range of talents. The introductions featured 83 contestants and then…poof! Within moments, only 15 were left. So if you were a smart cookie (who is never allowed to eat a cookie), you knew that a sultry open-mouth gasp was the best way to make your mark and appear on EW.com’s PopWatch the next day. Below, a tribute to the fallen heroes, in ascending order of ridiculousness.
Italy will cut you.
There she is.
Did the right one win?
