At the Miss Universe finals which took place earlier today in Sao Paolo, Brazil, Miss China Luo Zilin (罗紫琳) entered top 5, and was named 4th runner-up.
Not a bad result — all that prepping from Yue-Sai Kan might have helped.
In the final segment, each of the remaining top five contestants was asked a question. Miss China had the good fortune of picking a rather daft question, which was posed to her by Isabeli Fontana: “Nude beaches are common in some parts of the world. Is public nudity appropriate or inappropriate and why?”
Speaking through an interpretor, Luo answered, “Every country has its rules and regulations and every country has their own habits as well. We should respect them and be more understanding.”
Leila Lopes of Angola was crowned Miss Universe 2011. Miss Ukraine, Miss Brazil and Miss Philippines took first, second and third runner-up positions respectively.
