Beauty Contestant Wins Despite Dirty Tricks

 

Ingrid Marie Rivera became Puerto Rico's 2008 Miss Universe contestant. She accomplished this in spite of having her gowns sprayed with, and her make up spiked with pepper spray.

Miss Rivera was able to keep her composure for the cameras and judges. Once offstage she had to remove her tainted clothes and apply ice bags to her face and body.
Miss Rivera's clothing and makeup tested positive for pepper spray.

Miss Rivera, who had won the title of Miss World Caribbean in 2005, was accused by her rivals of buying her crown.
The last day of the competition had to be canceled due to a bomb threat.

  I actually know one of the contestants...  
 
she said it was quite hilarious, I'm sure she wouldn't be all shits & giggles if they got busted they'd all be banned from ever competing. In the good ol' days beauty queens would just sleep to win, now they try to buy you off...

  could someone explain to us ignorant folks  
 
what the point of covering yourself with pepper spray is, besides maybe irritating the other contestants?

I dont think it was for her advantage, the other contestants did it to her

  That's funny  
 
Rereading it as if she did it to herself, I could see how ladiedragonfli could have made that mistake. I've also heard recently that she may have actually done it to herself to generate publicity and/or sympathy...
