Just when you thought it was safe to pack away the placards the beauty pageant returns with an all-new twist.
Miss Universe NZ 2007 is offering text voting just like NZ Idol.
That's right, instead of lining up outside the contest venue chanting and making a stand against exploitation you can actually become a beauty contest judge.
How much of an impact the text voters will have on the overall decision isn't revealed, but remember you'll be making your decisions based on a few snapshots and simple bio on the contest website www.missuniversenz.co.nz and can keep track of who is leading the race.
