Miss USA Dressed as Optimus Prime Because America

Every year, won by an Earthling.

Apparently the National Costume Competition of the Miss Universe Pageant is largely a crash course in cultural stereotypes. While some contestants donned more traditional clothing from their home countries, others created extravagant costumes roughly inspired by their heritage. And Miss USA showcased two of the most important artifacts of American heritage to date -- stealing things from Japanese culture and Michael Bay.

Turns out, there's no better way to learn about and celebrate different cultures than watching beautiful women walking around in dress-shaped dioramas.

    Why is Miss Russia wearing a hijab? I thought they were big in the weird christianity.

        Yes, very much so.

        Oh sorry, apparently I misunderstood the "judge in yourselve" part.
