Thread: "combat Barbie" wants a sports challenge instead of a swimsuit competition?!

  1. #1

    Default "combat Barbie" wants a sports challenge instead of a swimsuit competition?!

    What in the world is this about?!

    Soldier and pageant contestant Katrina Hodge fights for ban on swimsuit competitions - Fashion + Beauty on Shine

    Apparently, British Lance Corporal-turned-beauty pageant model Katrina Hodge, or "Combat Barbie," as she is known, wants to get rid of the swimsuit modeling competition at the next Miss England pageant and replace it with, of all things, a sports challenge?!

    I suppose she wants to test her competitors' athletic skills, but a beauty pageant isn't the time for those ladies to get all sweaty and roughed up (not to mention hurt). What is she thinking?
    Is that your final answer?

    She doesn't want to strut her stuff. I dunno Beauty pageants focus on... beauty. How does athletic skill work in there?

    I know, I don't get it at all. If she wants to do that, she better go to a true fitness competition, like, I don't know, uh, World's Most Athletic Woman? Now THAT'S the place to get all roughed-up and sweaty.

    EDIT: Or better yet, try out for the next Olympics or something... I'm sure that's a better place for her than a beauty pageant; besides, why would a soldier compete in a beauty pageant in the first place?!

    How does a talent competition? For that matter, what does answering questions in regards to personality or personal beliefs have anything to do with beauty?

    Because she's fairly attractive.

    The judges have the rights to make assessments of inner beauty apparently.

    Or we could just stop caring about this homogenized, materialistic "beauty" crap. If I wanted other people's opinions about who has bigger fake breasts and more slamming platinum highlights I would go watch two club rats have a fight.

    iirc, beauty is in the eye of the beholder~ Or, at least, it was.

    Well, here in the United States, we have two national pageants: Miss USA and Miss America. The difference between the two is that the former only judges beauty, while the latter also judges talent.

    Are beauty pageant contestants allowed to have breast implants? I would have thought that'd be against some rule or another.

    I don't think so, but I'm not exactly sure...

    I love Bunny's understatement there, "combat barbie" or L/CPL Hodges as her rank deserves is a very beautiful woman it must be said.

    Also Super Millionaire, why wouldn't a very attractive woman regardless of her career be in a beauty pageant. Are you saying because she is in the army or was in the army she can't enter I don't think that would be fair, millitary women if nothing else have to be very fit which generally gives them an excellent body shape.

    Yes, you're right, but still, for some odd reason, I don't think it goes together very well... and the fact that she wants a sports challenge instead of a swimsuit competition makes no sense, either, because a beauty pageant isn't the place to get all roughed-up and sweaty.
