Right again. 

 I am rushing here, but I thought Sal's comments were directed to the larger 
issue.  No problem there.  But specifically, it is hard to argue against the 
idea that contestants in competition like this have a pretty good idea of the 
overall expectations, whether you find them acceptable or not.
 

 If they find those expectations unreasonable, they can certainly resign the 
crown.  Or, maybe their objective is make a protest about the overall issues 
Sal has raised.  That would be a different story.  But, you can't have it both 
ways. 
 

 And, to be honest, I thought the lady a bit of weird vibe when I saw her 
interview on Anderson Cooper.  And, she will be the first to admit she is "no 
saint".  Her words.  She's done some weird shit herself.  Highly unethical shit.

 Starving young women? Give me a break. They are like athletes in training. 
They get themselves in shape in order to compete in a contest. No one is 
forcing them to do it.

 Steve, leaving aside for a moment how disgusting fat shaming…or shaming of any 
kind is... have you ever gone on a crash diet?  Do you have any idea of what 
it’s like to live with the feeling of being constantly hungry?  Not to mention 
whatever plastic surgery they feel they have to get for their one brief moment 
in the sun. 

 Now maybe you could say she was being deceptive by accepting the role knowing 
she most likely couldn’t keep up appearances.  But when someone’s “investment” 
is built on someone else denying themselves, for a whole year, basic 
sustenance, isn’t that already a major deception? That they all do to one 
extent or another and that seems to be just fine with Trump, the “owner” of the 
contest? And isn’t it time to start wondering when we’re going to finally 
retire and put to bed, permanently, such horrendous examples of fake 
femininity, fake male dominance, fake ideals of beauty, all built on these very 
young and most likely desperate women doing things to their bodies that used to 
be the stuff of science fiction.
 

 The*whole thing* is a sick and twisted deception.   She most likely just 
started eating normally again, or however normally you can after doing whatever 
it is someone feels they need to do to whittle themselves down to a stick.
 

 Not to mention there's something truly disgusting about watching someone like 
Trump cavort and play mind games with these basically starving young women, all 
vying for his attention, while he goes back to the next lavish buffet as he 
decides which of them to make his plaything for the next year.

 if you are the winner of a Ms. Universe contest and then you go on to gain 60 
lbs., I'm not exactly sure you can say you are fulfilling the obligation for 
that title.  There is a certain expectation of physical appearance that I would 
think would go along with that role.
 

 Now, I would say that you should not ridicule or demean that person, but I can 
understand if the owner of the contest might think, WTF?
