Some of the most beautiful women in Sri Lanka, the contestants of the Avirate Miss Universe Sri Lanka 2011, prepared for their Miss Photogenic photo shoot at the Jonathans studio last Friday. We were able to spend some  time with them to get some very interesting answers to some questions.

If you were given a gift voucher for Rs. 50,000, what would you spend it on?
Lakshika

-: I will buy a phone because what I have now is broken. Thinking of buying an iPhone…

Angela

-: Give some for charity and then spend on books, bags and accessories!

Stephanie

-: Travel! Pool in and use it to go to the Caribbean

Hiranthi

-: Go to a yoga retreat !

Anupama

-: Buy something nice for my parents
Noshin
-: Take my family out for dinner and then go shopping with my girlfriends!

What is the most embarrassing moment you have had in the pageant?

Angela -: I can make this scary face and I showed it just to scare one of the girls and even the makeup artiste saw it!

Stephanie

-: I was trying on my evening gown for the pageant and it wouldn’t slip on easily  and two other people had to help me into it.

Hiranthi

-: All these photos that are taken of us in funny, weird poses…
Noshin
-: Tripped and fell on my back while rehearsing for the pageant in six inch heels
Marliese
-: I’m a photo freak now- every time I pull out the camera all the other girls groan

Anupama

-:
pictures taken of me making funny faces

Wasana

-:
being photographed while eating!

Who do you think is the best looking male in Sri Lanka?

Deena

-: The guy in the old Zesta tea ad!
Lakshika
-: Hemal and Falon looks good

Shanaz

-: Not local people, but John Abraham….
Angela

-: Never found any guy that hot

Stephanie

-: My make up guy!

Hiranthi

-: Chagall’s hair dresser- Ryan :D
Hirunika

-: One of my best friends, Udara Rathnayake

Gayesha

-: My boyfriend, Hasanjith

Marliese

-: Jesse Metcalfe, but he is not a Sri Lankan

Wasana

Noshin

-: My boyfriend!

-: Brian Kerkoven

Who do you think is the prettiest person out of the 12 contestants?
Lakshika
-: All are! But Hirunika is really pretty

Stephanie

-: Deena is gorgeous, she always stood out
Hiranthi
-: Angela and Hirunika are pretty

Hirunika

-: Stephanie and Noshin
Marliese
-: Noshin

Anupama

-: Wasana

Wasana

-: Anupama

What is the worst part about being in the public eye  ?
Deena

-: The feeling of being watched all the time, having no privacy, always have to be conscious of behaviour

Lakshika

-: For now I like it, maybe later it will get a little annoying

Shanaz

-: The fact that we are judged by what we wear
Angela

-: People expect us to be perfect like we expect cebrities to be, when we meet them we realized that they are flawed since no one is perfect.

Stephanie

-: Having a real smile instead of faking it!
Hiranthi 

Hirunika
-: Judged, rated and compared with others all the time

-: Judged, rated and compared with others all the time

Marliese 

Noshin

-: Lack of freedom or privacy

-: Lack of freedom or privacy

Anupama

-: All kinds of pictures of us being uploaded on web and not having any control over it.

Who do you think deserves to win the competition?  (other than you)

Lakshika

-: Noshin, Hirunika or Anupama
Shanaz
-: Deena, Gayesha, Wasana, Anupama, Hirunika…

Angela


-: Marliese, Deena, Gayesha… (Continues to list all the names in their number order so she wouldn’t have to choose one!)

Stephanie

-: Hirunika, Hiranthi or Deena

Hiranthi

-: Hirunika, Wasana or Gayesha

Hirunika

-: Hiranthi
Marliese -: Noshin
(Again Wasana says Anupama deserves to win while Anupama says Wasana does) Sigh.

What do you think need improvement in the competition?
Deena


-: Everything had been great but the pageant is compact into one month which is tiring. If we can spread it out more over a time span it will be better for us to perform better. (Lakshika, Angela, Hirunika, Marliese, Noshin, Anupama and Wasana more or less agrees)
Shanaz


-: In the international pageant, the contestants go to great depths to enhance their beauty so they have more chance, but we go with what we naturally have. If we could too have that privilege we will have a chance of winning.

Stephanie

-: I think the marketing of this pageant has been amazing but it could be better
Gayesha
-: Local media has been very supportive but there should be more contact with the international media

The craziest thing you want to do in life? (question  proposed by Deena)

Deena

-: Bungee jumping, sky diving or backpack in Europe
Lakshika
-: Want all the 12 contestants to go out and party one night

Shanaz

-: Go to another planet!
Stephanie

-:  Sky Diving
Hiranthi
-:  Sky Diving and also to climb the seven summits

Hirunika

-: Become a politician!
Gayesha
-: To become a pilot

Marliese

-: Travel the world
Anupama
-: Bungee Jumping!

Noshin

-:
Besides sky diving, I also want to climb Mount Everest

Angela

-:
Sky Diving

What the craziest thing that happened to you or you did since you joined the pageant?


Most (Deena, Lakshika, Shanaz, Hiranthi, Hirunika, Gayesha, Marliese, Noshin, Anupama and Wasana) said -: falling off the banana boat in Bentota a few days back. To fall off the banana boat was
                               part of the photo shoot

Stephanie        -: Rupavahini showed this funny video clip of me dancing!

Would you ever pose nude or semi-nude as a model?
A chorus of “NO!” by all twelve contestants!
