A video of Miss Guyana's fall has already made its way on Youtube so we could watch it over and over again. Watch it below (upload courtesy of Nathalia Souza).
Just like Miss Philippines Miriam Quiambao, who slipped and fell at the Miss Universe 1999 evening gown prelims and eventually became the pageant's 1st Runner Up, there's a possibility that Miss Guyana Ruqayyah Boyer might also land a spot in the semis of Miss Universe 2012 for the queenly grace that she showed after the fall. (But of course, it's just 1/3 of her preliminary scores, which will also consider her preliminary swimsuit and interview scores.)
She's actually already doing great in that evening gown portion even before the epic fall happened.
Before the preliminaries, Miss Guyana ranked 79th or in the Bottom group of my Miss Universe 2012 favorites list and we'll see how she'll rank on my post-prelims list, which I will be releasing tomorrow, December 16. - Mykiru.ph
