Miss Canada sticks out in hockey costume at Miss Universe contest.

According to a report in Lebanon’s Daily Star, Lebanese Tourism Minister Michel Pharaon said Friday that Saly Greige will retain her title and even offered his support of the beauty queen Greige faced massive critisicim in her home country after she posed for a selfie with Doron Matalon, Miss Israel for 2014, as the two prepared for the Miss Universe competition being held in Maima.In homage to her country’s national sport, Chanel Beckenlehner, 26, marched onstage in a bedazzled hockey uniform, complete with hockey sticks arranged in the likeness of peacock feathers.

Photos circulated on social media over the past week showing Greige surrounded by the beauty queens of Israel, Slovenia and Japan caused uproar in Lebanon. Lebanon’s Al Jadid published a scathing report of the incident, in which they poked fun at Greige, and asked by the model, who once said she enjoys reading, failed to read a book explain that Israel is an enemy state.

Meanwhile, Matalon flatly denied Greige’s explanation. “We took a group picture with Miss Slovenia, Miss Japan, and Miss Lebanon,” said Matalon. “She must have received criticism from fans in Lebanon after I uploaded it, and now she will not stand next to me in any situation, and now Miss Egypt is behaving the same way.” Lebanon and Israel remain in an official state of war, and though border incidents are rare since Israel fought a bloody war with Lebanese Shiite terror group Hezbollah in 2006, relations with Israel are frowned upon, and those crossing the border, even for cultural or personal reasons, are usually interrogated. Other over-the-top costumes worn at the national costume competition included Miss Great Britain’s Queen’s Guard outfit, and Miss U.S.A.’s elaborate take on the stars and stripes. She named Mary Jean Lastimosa as one of the candidates to beat, calling her the Filipina’s self-introduction at the opening of the pageant “a much classier version” as opposed to many other candidates’ “embarrassing” screaming. Ligron also seems to have a soft spot for the Philippines as a nation, having packed two balikbayan boxes full of warm clothes for children who live in the mountains.
