What did she just say? Irene Sofia Esser Quintero, Miss Venezuela, gave an unintelligible response during the Miss Universe contest earlier this week and was awarded no points during the question portion of the show.
But it isn’t all Miss Venezuela’s fault. In fact, you might even applaud her for trying to answer the question in English.
Quintero is a native Spanish speaker and had the option of answering her question in her native tongue. Instead, Miss Venezuela tried to impress the crowd by answering the question in English.
Well, it backfired. The longer Quintero spoke the less sense she made.
Miss Venezuela was asked: “If you could make a new law, what would it be?”
“I think that any (leys?) there are in Constitution or in life, are already made. I think that we should have, uh, a straight way to go in our similar, or, eh, in our lives as is this. For example, I’m a surfer, and I think that the best wave that I can take is the wave that I wait for it. So please do our only, eh, law that we can do. Thank you Vegas!”
So, the world needs better surfing laws? All of the best laws are already made?
Despite her confusing answer, Miss Venezuela still managed to finish third in the Miss Universe contest.
Do you think Miss Venezuela should have gotten points for making the effort?
