It’s been well reported that Miss France, 23, was crowned Miss Universe on Sunday evening. Iris Mittenaere, a dental student, became the first French woman to earn the crown in more than 60 years.
But did you know that on Jan. 22, the world crowned a Mrs. Grandma Universe?
Jakosalem, a mother of three and grandmother of one, was the first Filipino woman to win the honor — not bad for someone who had never entered a beauty contest before.
Miss Grandma Universe is organized by Mrs. Universe Ltd., which also produces Mrs. Universe, Mrs. Europe, and Children of Universe — a few of the many pageants held across the world that command spotlights of their own.
Just last week, we watched the Miss Tatarstan beauty pageant, which proved eventful as contestants wore orbital dresses, what resembled to be bondage accessories, and outfits that definitely made you look twice.
While the Mrs. Grandma Universe contest is basically a joyous celebration of grandmothers everywhere, we have to admit we have seen some pretty interesting beauty pageants around the world. Watch the video above for the nine most unusual ones we could find.
