First Time For Everything!


I've blogged about pageants before, but this one is near and dear to my heart. Could I be any more excited about the winner of Miss South Pacific this year? I don't think so. Tonga has taken home the crown, and it could go to no one better. Ms. Tessi Leila Toluta'u is the new Miss South Pacific, and has represented Tonga oh-so-well. What a great day it is, to have the crowning glory go to a hafekasi ta'ahine Tonga! She not only won the whole competition, but she also took home the prize for four out of the seven special categories. Never before has a Miss Heilala won the Miss SP, on exception of in 1995, when Ma'ata Mo'ungaloa took over for a winner who could not fulfill her duties. This year marks the year when we begin to TAKE OVER! Go on suka mamas, show 'em what you're made of!

Ma'ata Mo'ungaloa actually did win Miss South Pacific in 1995 (first Miss Tonga to win the title). It was her Miss Tonga title that she lost (after she had won Miss SP) due to violation of pageant rules, although, I think such rules could be argued against.

eseta polka dots said...

The reason Ma'ata lost her Miss Heilala title was because she later had an affair with a member of the Tonga Royal Family (whom she ended up marrying, and later divorced). She kept her Miss South Pacific title. Regardless, Tonga is proud to say that Ma'ata was our first Miss South Pacific, and Tessi our second :) Yay! Go Tonga!

@eseta: oh gosh i didn't even realize i had written that! i made that way too confusing! hmm..i won't go into my thoughts on that situation, but she was a pretty girl, yes? you know who i also think should have won Miss SP? Sina Nauahi! Agree? Disagree?

Okay, now to edit..

fantastic said...

Wait a second...so now I'm confused, and my memory isn't going to serve me from 1995..hahaha! So...did she win Miss SP straight away, or was it by default? I know that MIss Samoa also held the title for 8 months that year..but was that before or after her? Now I need to get to the bottom of this and find an answer..and nobody can seem to remember!

Hi Ane :)

Ma'ata Mo'ungaloa won Miss South Pacific straightaway, NOT by default! She was the first Miss Heilala to win the miss SP pageant, ever--and Tonga will always be proud of that record. The pageant was held in Tonga, and I remember, I was about 13 or 14 at the time, listening to the radio broadcast that night as it was held in town (I wasn't allowed to go to town with my friends to watch the pageant) I remember having chills when Ma'ata's name was announced as winner of the pageant. The whole of Tonga went wild that night! Ma'ata was a fresh faced 18 or 19 year old from California at the time, although, she did attend some or all of her secondary high school years in Tonga. (She's also my boyfriend's second cousin :) Not too long after she won the Miss South Pacific title, news surfaced that she was having a public affair with a member of the Tonga Royal Family. It was then that her Miss Tonga title was taken away from her, and her first runner-up Miss Titieni Kaho (another very gorgeous girl, and former Liahona High School student) became Miss Heilala. Ma'ata kept her Miss South Pacific title because her affair did not extend to South Pacific jurisdiction... I don't know what Ma'ata is up to now, but she is now divorced from her ex, and is remarried to I think, a foreigner. Ma'ata in my opinion is an extremely beautiful girl--even more so than Tessi and Sina. As for whether Sina should have or should have not won miss SP... I really don't know because I don't know her, neither did I watch the pageant. But usually, the best girl wins. Not necessarily the most beautiful. The most talented. Or the smartest. I think it's the most all around best girl. Which I think is subjective, but is someone who everyone can relate to, not extreme in one way or another... Hope that made sense...

eseta polka dots said...

Okay.. Never mind.. I just went on the Miss South Pacific site and saw that Ma'ata held the Miss SP title for four months. So apparently, they stripped her title after her affair surfaced. I thought they only stripped her Miss Heilala title, NOT her Miss SP title. But Ma'ata really did win the pageant. Miss Samoa was her first runner-up who ended up fulfilling her duties :( But Ma'ata will always be our first Miss SP :) I think those rules are dumb ;) Well, it can be argued either way I think... ;)

eseta polka dots said...

A news article I came across on the net. Kinda outrageous. I mean what's with these unjust rules about not marrying commoners? ONLY in Tonga! Not sure about the shooting incident described below as I hadn't heard of it before... And as for the Miss South Pacific website... it looks confusing how they posted the title holder's names, and year won infos.. It posted Ma'ata's successor BEFORE her instead of AFTER her giving the impression that Miss Samoa won. WHATEVAAAAA! LOL.. But anyhoot...

Beauty queen in distress finds love

Jessica Mathews

Tuesday, April 09, 1996

AUCKLAND: A 19-year-old Tongan woman stripped of her Miss South Pacific beauty title after an alleged affair with a member of the Tongan royal family will now marry the former prince.

Ma'ata Mo'ungaloa is now in hiding in San Francisco after fleeing Tonga last week amid outrage over her affair with Mailefihi Tuku'aho, a nephew of King Taufa'ahau Tupou IV.

Her father, 'Etueni Mo'ungaloa, the king's personal secretary, asked for police protection for his daughter after she was beaten up by a member of the Tongan aristocracy and was then shot at several days later but not hit.

Police escorted her to a flight to New Zealand.

Mr Mailefihi lost his princely title in 1983 when he married a commoner. He is now divorced.

An aunt of the ex-beauty queen said that the former prince had gone to the US looking for the young woman.

They will get married this Saturday and then return to Tonga. - Agence France-Presse

...and I'm back! Thank you for all of the details! I agree that the website is deceiving--which is why I couldn't get a definite answer on who "won first". Thanks for straightening that up :) I used to follow the Miss pageant sooo closely growing up--we should really go down memory lane, because I remember having those same feelings about some of the other winners (which, now that I think of it had similar outcomes..haha).

eseta polka dots said...

I think the website may have a bias leaning towards Samoa, since I think they are the ones running the whole show.. lol.. just my opinion ;)

fantastic said...

i agree. they always highlight the samoa contestant regardless of her placing. glad someone noticed that!

Here's an example: Take 2-4 capsules of a high-quality anti-DHT supplement (usually found as a
"healthy prostate" supplement) daily; consume 2 tablespoons each ground flax
seed and coconut oil daily; massage essential oil formula into the scalp each evening and leave on overnight.
' Hair treatments: Pigtails, cornrows or use of tight
hair rollers that pull on your hair can cause a type of alopecia.

The good news is that its development can often be slowed down with
appropriate treatment.

I'm amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and interesting,
and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy that I came across this in my hunt
for something regarding this.
