Those Sexy Finns...
Phil at Finland for Thought has a great post up about Miss Suomi 2006 plus a great link to the photos of the candidates.
Most of the gents perusing the site went with #2, but I'd have to go with #1 or #4. The Jormas in Finland chose #4, a woman that goes by the name Ninni Laaksonen. I don't really know why. I enjoy the nationalist bikini though. There is some sort of unspoken yet widely understood "fact" in Estonia that Finnish women are all ugly. But Finnish women remind me of this sort of gray area between ugly and attractive. Just like the followers of Green philosophies and readers of Ayn Rand tend to agree to an odd extent about a lot of stuff,and exist in that weird zone between leftist and rightist political ideologies, so do the women of Finland inhabit that odd gray zone between gross and beguilingly attractive.
I've been told that the women of Finland don't care what the women of Estonia think, which is probably true. They probably care more about what the women of Sweden think.;) Anyway, there's also a Miss Estonia contest which probably doesn't feature nationalist bikinis and includes girls with more make-up, expensive nails, tacky clothing, and fat male judges with mullets. Plus eurodisco. There must be eurodisco.
You can look at that website here. The contest for Proua Eesti 2006 will be on March 8. However, Miss Tallinn 2006 has already been announced. And no, she was just chosen for her looks. According to her profile on Nexus, Helen Randmäe enjoys eating tatrapuder (porridge), drinking keefir (fermented milk), and enjoys romantic comedies "Romantiline komöödia, kus saab nutta ja naerda." (where you can cry and laugh). Her idol is Benny Hill, who I am sure would have had her on his show, and like me, her least favorite place on Earth is the Balti Jaama Troll. A true Estonian.
