It seems that it wouldn't be a Miss Universe pageant without a good scandal, and this year, the issue relates to plastic surgery. Jennifer Hawkins, crowned 2004's Miss Universe, was gossiped about by this year's Miss Australia, Scherri-Lee Biggs. She accused Miss Universe of having “too much plastic surgery” and essentially being a bad role model to the young women that look up to her.
Although drama is not uncommon in the pageant world, this gossip was more surprising since Hawkins isn't even a part of this year's competition as she was crowned the winner during the last one.
There is some debate about how women should be representing themselves physically when participating in a pageant. Some believe that a competition based on looks (primarily) should assess natural beauty only. As a result, those that choose to help enhance their looks fall under scrutiny.
However, in this circumstance the individual making the accusations has allegedly tried to reach out and apologize to the former Miss Universe. She claims that she was misinterpreted and never meant to be malicious.
