Aug. 23: Jimena Navarrete is congratulated by fellow contestants after being crowned Miss Universe.
LAS VEGAS -- A 22-year-old Mexico woman won the Miss Universe pageant Monday night after donning a flowing red gown and telling an audience it's important to teach kids family values.

Jimena Navarrete of Guadalajara was first to answer an interview question Monday night and the last of 83 contestants standing in the headline-grabbing pageant on the Las Vegas Strip.

Her one-strap gown flowed behind her like a sheet as she walked. Earlier, she smiled in a violet bikini as she confidently strutted across the stage.

Asked by Olympic gold-medal figure skater Evan Lysacek how she felt about unsupervised Internet use, Navarrete said the Internet is important but parents need to be careful and watch over their kids.

"I do believe that Internet is an indispensable, necessary tool for the present time," she said through an interpreter. "We must be sure to teach them the values that we learned as a family."

Seems like she was mimicking conservatives to me. Even the red dress.. hmmm


I find it very ironic that she would preach about family values while participating in a contest that objectifies women as sex objects. It seems to be contradictory to me to preach about family values while walking across the stage in a scantily clad bikini.
