2019


2018's Rose has gotten a bit of flak from nationalist racist auld boys or "Alan Dillons" as I call them. After Miss France's chief Judge Alain Delon (yes, THAT Alain Delon) got all National Front  over Miss France being the daughter of African migrants.
No wonder Morrissey loves him.

Isn't this all a bit patronising now? I mean, is there a Look at this Generally Ace Man isn't he Ace while being non Ugly and thin competition? I really hope not as that would fatally undermine my point.

Yes, it's always been patronising.
Basically, it can be summed up in six words - "Sure, she's a grand girl altogether".

Forgive my ignorance - do people actually watch this? Or is it a weird niche thing like Crufts?

I'm waiting for a transgender to win this so we can get at least a decade out of the Glinner threads.

Yep.

About half a million watched it over both nights it aired last year on RTE 1 which would be the Irish version of BBC1.

Again, apologies for my ignorance - is 500k a good rating for Irish telly? I’m trying to gauge whether it’s a “Love Island” smash hit or a bit niche

It's watched by people to take the mickey out of, but like a lot of things in Ireland, Crystal Swing, the Eurovision, the bosses don't get that.

My colleague (who was generally known as 'the beautiful one' before we got to remember her name) has a sister who is up for Miss GB having already won Miss Regionwhereshelives. That's it really.

Its a very impressive number.

Last year the show was the 42nd most watched show of the year for RTE which is impressive when you consider the soccer world cup and how dominant mainstream sport is on terrestrial telly.

Thanks for that - well well well. What’s so special about Tralee (assuming it’s a place - I’ve done no research)

It's a tourist initiative by the local council, named after the old folk song.

The prizes are ridiculous.
"A Kia or a Volvo for a year" (I've never understood this, for the non-Irish ones, yes, but what happens that car once it is used, can they buy it?)
