Beauties and the four-wheel beasts

PHUKET: Demonstrating that there’s more to a beauty queen than good looks, the 44 competitors in the Miss Thailand Universe 2005 indulged in a little pistol shooting, raced all-terrian vehicles and rode on elephants.

The activities, filmed by Channel 7 TV for broadcast on March 26, the day of final of the contest, took place at the Phuket Shooting Range. Yesterday the contestants had a quieter day, visiting the Sea Gypsy village on Koh Sireh, where they watched a display of Sea Gypsy dancing, before joining in.

The contestants arrived in Phuket last Thursday and are scheduled to take part in a local competition tomorrow at FantaSea to decide which of them is Phuket’s particular favorite.

They will leave the island on Wednesday to prepare for the finals in Bangkok.
