(Dan Tri) – The fact that the Miss Universe Buenos Aires (Argentina capital) 2024 contest chose a 60-year-old woman to be crowned and appointed as a representative at the national competition created controversy on beauty forums.

On April 22, Ms. Alejandra Rodríguez, 60 years old, surpassed many young girls to be crowned the highest winner at the Miss Universe Buenos Aires (Argentina capital) 2024 contest. Alejandra’s victory caused controversy on the Internet.

In an article about Alejandra posted by beauty site Missuupdates, an audience member called the Miss Universe contest a circus.

It is known that from 2023, the Organizing Committee of the Miss Universe contest announced that there will be no age limit for contestants participating in the contest.

Many opinions are supportive because the Miss Universe pageant is trying to create diversity, support and encourage women of all ages to be confident.

With opinions supporting Ms. Alejandra Rodríguez’s victory, they said that the 60-year-old woman completely deserved it because she possessed beauty and good education.

Alejandra Rodríguez is introduced as a lawyer, a journalist, an animal activist, with a healthy and energetic life.

Many audiences agree that the appearance of older women like Alejandra Rodríguez in major beauty contests like Miss Universe is considered a motivation to help women of all ages confidently shine and express themselves.

Meanwhile, others believe that the age diversity of contestants causes the quality of the long-standing beauty contest to decline.

`I agree that women will not expire at the age of 28 or 29. Maybe that’s when we start our careers but this can be unfair for young women when they have to compete with other women.

Miss Universe is considered a pioneering beauty contest in breaking the usual rules for a traditional beauty contest.

In the 2023 season, there will be 2 transgender contestants and 2 women with children representing the country participating in the Miss Universe contest.

Miss Universe is currently considered one of the four most prestigious and largest international beauty contests in the world today with a large number of quality contestants.

In an effort to renew the contest, Ms. Anne Jakapong Jakrajutatip constantly introduces reforms in the way the organization operates and selects contestants.

Under Ms. Anne, key figures who have been with the Miss Universe organization for a long time gradually submitted their resignations and expressed frustration with her way of operating.

Ms. Amy Emmerich – CEO of Miss Universe – has submitted her resignation letter.

After resigning, Ms. Paula Shugart announced that she would file a lawsuit against Ms. Anne for falsely accusing her of accepting bribes.

Last February, a video allegedly recorded at a private meeting between Ms. Anne Jakrajutatip and the contest’s team was shared on social networks, causing intense controversy.

In the clip, Ms. Anne affirmed that the Miss Universe contest has no age limit, allowing transgender women, married women, and children to participate, but will not let these people win.

In the video shared on social networks, the transgender businesswoman also shared her intention to organize the Miss Universe contest in the form of reality television to attract audiences, while integrating advertising and business.

The video created a controversy.

Responding to criticism, the Miss Universe organization denied and explained that the clip was published for bad purposes and to tarnish the image of the organization.

Anne also  explained: `We have always had kind supporters who truly love the Miss Universe brand and believe in our core value of promoting diversity.

I am a transgender woman and mother who has fought for gender equality all my life to get to where I am today.

After a series of scandals, fans gradually expressed regret for Miss Universe and the reputation built over many years through the competition.
