French Miss Universe candidate claims she was sabotaged in final: ‘They didn’t want a Frenchwoman’ | Showbiz

ShowbizIs Miss Universe a rigged game? According to French candidate Diane Lear (26 years old), there is definitely something wrong with it. On “Touche pas à mon poste” she admitted that she “destroyed” her stand during the final. But that had to do with sabotage behind the scenes.

Miss France Diane Lear was one of the candidates, but her performance during the Miss Universe final did not live up to expectations. In “Touche pas à mon poste” she looks at her own catwalk, which did not go the way she wanted.

“It destroyed my platform,” she also told TV Magazine after being eliminated. “It’s a disappointment, but especially for my country and the people who supported me. That’s just how things are. I wasn’t good on stage,” he said.

But there was more to it than that, the model now claims. She thinks the makeup team tried to sabotage her. The makeup artists forced her to reapply the makeup. “But I’m allergic to the makeup remover they use,” Diane explains. “It’s also over in my eyes…” She suspects this was done maliciously. “It’s true they sabotaged me. I think the makeup team, being Latin American, didn’t necessarily want a French woman.

“I ended up with a burnt strand of hair and completely messed up makeup,” Lear continues. “Twenty minutes before I was supposed to go on stage, I had to do it all over again. My manager came up to me and said, ‘They’ve clearly sabotaged you.’

However, Miss France also blames herself. “It’s annoying, of course, but that doesn’t change the fact that I simply didn’t do a good job on stage.” Extensive preparation did not save her performance. “I took 25 hours of classes, but it didn’t really show.” Thus her chance of winning was dashed. “I’m proud of the fact that we were among the favorites until almost the last second,” Lear added. “Until the moment I went to that stage…”

It was 23-year-old Shenice Palacios from Nicaragua who took home the Miss Universe title. Miss France did not make it into the top 20, just like Belgian Emily Vansteenkiste.

The new Miss Universe comes from Nicaragua, and Emily Vansteenkiste didn’t make it into the top 20.
