With some of the world’s most beautiful women on display at tonight’s Miss Universe Pageant in Los Angeles, viewers of the NBC broadcast were exposed to a celebration of homosexuality with continuous “gay” jokes and innuendo.
Providing commentary for the program were Carson Kressley, a homosexual who stars on the Bravo network’s “Queer Eye,” and 2004 Miss USA Shandi Finnessey.
At one point in the program, when Finnessey was promoting a beauty guide viewers could order, Kressley said, “It’ll tell you how to be a true queen. A beauty queen.”
During analysis of the finalists, Kressley noted, “I also loved Miss Puerto Rico. Again I have to confess I was looking at her dress, I was kind of mesmerized.”
“You want to borrow it, is what you want to do,” Finnessey responded.
Regarding some of the contestants’ ability to speak more than one language, Kressley also clowned he was ready to become “bi-,” but then jokingly clarified he meant “bi-lingual.”
In the end, Miss Puerto Rico, 18-year-old Zuleyka Rivera Mendoza, won the competition and was crowned Miss Universe 2006, while Miss USA Tara Conner was fourth runner-up.
“I’m ready to switch teams for [Miss] Puerto Rico,” Kressley swooned.
