Nineteen women aged 17 to 25 entered the 2012 Miss Alexandra Swimsuit Competition.
. . . Judges Jacqui van Dam, Tim Riwhi, Carolyn Lyons and Amber Kinnaird said it was not a beauty pageant – it was about style, confidence and personality. . .
No doubt the judges knew what it was they were judging.
But if it wasn’t a beauty contest, why were the contestants in swimsuits and why only women?
“It’s not about a beauty contest, just the personality that comes through in the questions they are asked and the confidence they have when they wear their outfit – the colours and how the bikini suits the personality”
Hmm – I bet a bikini wouldn’t suit some personalities no matter how sparkling they are.
