Miss Universe's Hometown Winners




Winning a crown in delegate's home country will automatically link up  to a "hometown decision".
A decision whereby candidate, fighting for a crown  in her  country,  seemingly is given every benefit of the doubt by the judging officials.

Well could not avoid this kind of thinking if you have won in your own country and this is not only for beauty pageants but it is universal.
