When Beautiful People Fail


Last January 2, I was invited by a good friend whom I have met through this blog, Mr. Line of Flight to be a judge in a Miss Gay Contest in Ilocos Norte.

The pageant had an impressive production value and the title went to a trannie who is a medical doctor by day and a "kontesera" by night.

There was one lesson that I learned as I participated in the event. Most people would enjoy seeing beautiful people fail. This observation was quite evident as the audience anticipated for every mistake of every beautiful contestant onstage. Could this be the same behavior why we love to talk about the mistakes celebrities commit in their lives?

my mother use to say, "if you don't have anything nice to say about someone, say nothing at all."

i think the reason behind people seeing a beautiful person aesthetically stumble is because they are just finding something not so beautiful to calm themselves and prove that nobody is perfect
