oh c’mon man Indonesia prohibites their candidates to wear a skin showing swimsuit? that’s bulsh*t MF! its like u either cold or u hot that’s all that matter. u aint be selected miss universe if the judges wont be able to see your body! i mean how many others wears belly covering swinsuit?
This is miss universe we’re talking about – beauty that’s all matters and i can tell you that many other candidates talks bulsh*t when they get interviewed. yeah damn rite they talked fluent english but in the eyes of many people and television who cares if they got IQ einstein like. damn Indonesia got to move on man… Nadine could have won this competition!!!! she only needs 1 semester of English lesson that’s all.
dun ever give up nadine and make sure to try harder next year !!!
and c’mon people of Muslim and Christian ….so what gitu lohh if we got different races??? that’s our beauty and people should start to respect that!
if u want to know who the real Indonesian?? its dayak and the Arabs guys! majapahit is Hindu!!! they are the one who got to indo first before Chinese and malayans and couple of bules stepped in.
and after the independce day we are one which means we are INDONESIAN! i dunno why the f..k people are still fighting over races damn man i pity them because they got no education!
and i hate Walpres for inviting Arab people to come to indo to f..k?? damnn that’s discrimination man and he gotta to step down! he want to start a war against women of indo? f..k that sh*tt
say what chacha? sorry, I don’t speak tarzan language full of censored materials like you do. have a nice day.
The entire discussion just proves that Nadine represents most Indonesians in this place as well. The plethora of grammatical errors, letter casing errors, misspelling errors, etc, make my head aches. I think excessive cursing and venom do not do any good to anyone here. So does judgemental attitude and non sequitur arguments.
good point JayZ! The fact we are talking about it already made Indonesia worth talking about!
*lol* Nadine harassed Indonesian women by appearing in vulgar poses at the Miss Universe 2006 contest on behalf of Indonesia… fair enough, everyone has different opinion about this issue.
I say next year we send in a banci/transvestite!
Its time to embrace diversity; and I don’t see many Indonesian women are going to feel misrepresented. On the downside, I think the pageant disqualified a transexual contestant in the past. We’re going to need a serious make up artist team, and surgeons. kekekkeke
nadine i proud you, but are you don’t know we east people. up to you ok!
I don’t speak english very much, but perfect in german, Indonesian and javanese. Am I brainless?
For me is such Miss competition an affront to the womanship. But, if some one like it, why not?
As I read an article about Nadine being reported to the police because of indecency, I didn’t know either to laugh or to cry.
Quo vadis Indonesia?
There are many brothers and sisters who cried about their in tsunami wave lost children, there are many poors who don’t know what to eat tomorrow.
Spend them some of your energy and wise words (and maybe some of your dollars?).
Great post here. Although I have to say that most of the comments are just plain stupid without a strong facts/arguments behind it. Come on people, be civilized and roll out a good arguments. Be civilized…
Plz don’t mix this discussion with religion
and plz, do not curse indo. The opinion of one particular person or group does not represent the entire nation’s.
If u’re born in indo or from an indo parent (based on birth place), then u should be thankful that there is at least a place that allow u or ur parents to settle (regardless of it’s government, or religious discrimination).
I am Indo-Chinese, and I disagree with a lot of it’s governmental (and certain groups) policies (which only represent tiny percentage of all indo people). But do not mix politics with the rest of it’s people. There are lots of innocent people too.
so plz, don’t loose ur focus and on this disccusion board, the discussion is about NADINE . It’s neither about any particular believes nor grudges against a country with many diverse ethnicities:)
these 2 faced people make me really speechless,
frankly speakin,i didnt like nadine at first,
but after all she’s pretty (admit that man!) n u cant judge she’s stupid just bcoz of a li’l mistake while u speak english like this –>are you don’t know we east people?
hahaha..sorry man,didnt mean to insulr ur english,but trust me,nadine’s english is much2 better than most of u! how old is she? 21? WHAT DID U DO WHEN U WERE 21?
Go Nadine! beat them!
Look people. wearing a bathing suite is to show people that our country have beautiful woman.so if you think that it is only to provoke sex thoughts then you need to go to mental hospital because you have a disease called sexual perversions or simply called pervert. in Indonesia it is called penyimpangan seksual. because ur brain only think the negative side of it. and that is only you you cannt generalize all Indonesian to be like that. and u surely cant make law based on that (RUU Anti pornoaksi and pornografi)
that’s the “beauty” of diversity in Indo
diverse in opinion, culture, religion, ethnics
by the way what ever u say
I’m proud to be an Indonesian

Nadine is the best. In fact, English language and radical Islam is the same because they are the same imperialist! English is the only imperialist language. not an international language forever! just like Islam in |Indonesia which is spreading imperialism. I hate all people who can understand English! English is an Islam while world/Earth is really the Republic if Indonesia. that’s the fact. The non-Muslim Indonesian people are non-English languages in Earth, including Bahasa Indonesia, which Nadine use for her interview.!
This is why I believe in the seperation of church and state. or mosque and state, whatever. but seriously, there are bigger problems that Indonesia has to deal with. I mean, who the hell cares if she’s wearing a bikini? we let tourists do it all the time; inside this country. She wasn’t commiting a lewd act, she wasn’t engaging in illicit acctivites, and MOST importantly, she wasn’t harming anyone. People seriously need to look at the BIG picture, fix that, then start harping on the little things.
Well this is new… hatred of people who speak a certain language. As if hatred amongst race & religion weren’t enough.
Karlira, you must have hated yourself as well, since you apparently understand English.
Hello, I just happen to spend about 1,5 hour last night looking at Miss Universe 2006 website. I knew, we have delegate, pretty one for sure, and perhaps very smart too. Though, frankly, we should choose better speaker, LOL, I was so surprised that Nadine does not speak a good English, in fact …. too bad of english for a rep of Indonesia.
I agree though, that I RUU pornografi comes up because a closed minded concerns from very closed-minded people,… I guess, they should look around in Indonesia…. we are diverse and we cannot impose a particular strict law upon everyone! Man… I can’t imagine Indonesia with mono culture, boooooooooooooooring.
I am happy that Nadine represent Indonesia, if she were the chosen Miss Universe this year, she would of make a big difference in Indonesia and the world. She will be our real rep around the world… those MPR and DPR will think differently! The peagentry is just a way for her to reach this goal. Look at what Miss Puerto Rico does today! She is a star, an idol, a representative for her world and the world! I think most of us will be proud of Nadine, if she was one!
However, I am also satisfied that Nadine was eliminated…. she still needs to work a lot more on her intellectual and skills, man… that English skill was pretty bad for a miss universe to have! She could of just speak Bahasa Indonesia! I hope next year Miss Indonesia will show better quality!
Rockstar is right, almost all Indonesians in whole Indonesia really cannot understands English, just like Filipinos’ languages from unidentifying planet or languages from UFO (BETA in Indonesian), that’s the fact.
Me too, English for me, is my 4th language…and I dont study language in my whole time
Lastly for those who supports nadine: YOU DON’T ACTUALLY THINK THEY WOULD CHOOSE SOMEONE WHO DIDN’T SPEAK ENGLISH FLUENTLY AS THE MISS UNIVERSE, DO YOU? as the future miss universe 2006 tours the world, she would speak Indonesian and german? gimme a break”¦
man you need to broaden your horizon…you sound dumb…you ARE dumb…
FYI dumb man…there have been many miss universe winners from other countries who used interpreters. there have been Japan, South America (too many to mention…but sh*t the girls are hot!), other parts of Asia….how’s the pageant in burqa? is it good? are they smart? oh i forgot, they’re not even allowed to have any education! you stupid ass!
If you called someone “dumb” then u’re dumb too. So stop saying dumb, etc.
You’re all like bots…
“banyak yang brengsek”
Just because she’s wearing a bikini doesn’t mean she’s dumb!
I would prefer nadine to wear nothing at all… *LOL*
I support on you. Your duty is enough. It’s hard to make someone understand. Then leave it, you can find another place to do “it”.
See you all may God Bless You.
HA HA — whats up with everybody? Measuring someones brain with the ability to speak english? Then what do you guys think about our country? Claim to be a country with people who speaks english fluently but STILL becoming an under developed country? Bingo! What a typical Indonesian! And you oskar — you think your einstein? Huh?
Try to speak in english in front of million of viewers around the world. Oh! And try to put some high heels and make up too, so that you know that it ain’t easy being a girl! Try to repsect others wiil you?
Of course she’s unable to speak english because she wasn’t even born in an english-spoken country. Do you think all MU contestants were good at it?
Take a look at the one from Italy. She did misspell a word. Well maybe Nadine misspelled too many words hehe but thats ok! She needs all the support she could get right now because she is under a lot pressure [ back home...with the FPI about the bikini and stuff ]
Come on guys when you are facing too many people and being the center of everything, you could get nervous too. I bet you wouldn’t do any better than her if you were under the exact situation as she was.
Indos should ship FPI supporters to the middle east and let them live happily ever after, no more worrying about what other people are wearing, kissing law, or stupid things like that, they are such a waste of skin.
I think its time that Indonesians should throw out the sh*t from their mind that miss universe organisation degrades women. HEY by the way this is 21st century. And now its time that Indonesia should accept some changes. Islamic beliefs have always kept women behind ‘purdah’ and were made to do what men demanded, no freedom. these women are meek sheep drawn by herder (men)
How long will this madness go on ? indonesian women should have all rights to express themselves and good freedom( dont take me in wrong way).
THE ISSUE OF NADINE WEARING A BIKINI IS VERY SENSTIVE, HELLO ! BY THE WAY THE WORLD IS CHANGING AND BIKINIS ARE THE LATEST TREND, SO INDONESIANS SHOULD NOT THINK IN A NEGATIVE WAY. 1 PIECE IS OUT OF FASHION, BUT ! BUT ! BUT ! NADINE HAS DONE A RIGHT THING BY WEARING A BIKINI ATLEAST SHE HAS TRIED TO BE FREE FROM BOORING ISLAMIC BELIEF OF SHOWING IN A BIKINI. HEY SHE HAS SHOWN HOW A WOMEN CAN COME OUT OF PURDAH AND TRY TO BE FASHIONABLE.
PORNOGRAPHY IS DIFFERENT FROM WEARING BIKINI. IN PORNOGRAPHY ONE STRIPS HER ESSENTIALS LIKE BIKINI AND BECOMES TOTALLY NUDE. BUT IN BIKINI A GIRL COVERS HER ESSENTIALS( YOU KNOW IT).
FASHION ! SO INDONESIAN WOMEN SHOULD FOLLOW FASHION AND COME OUT OF DISBELIEFS.
NADINE I AM PROUD OF YOU. YOU WERE SHINING LIKE A STAR AT MISS UNIVERSE 2006. YOU SHOWED ALL THAT AN INDONESIAN CAN COME OUT OF SUCH HINDRANCES OF DISBELIEF.
KEEP ROCKING GIRL
Poor nadine.. Indonesian should gave her support not mocking!
