As the Miss France competition approached, the Gala teams followed the regional Misses during their stay in Versailles. They met Justine Dubois, Miss Poitou-Charentes, whose father is convinced that the election is rigged …
Before starting their rehearsals at Puy-du-Fou on the sidelines of the centenary of Miss France , the 29 candidates in the running had the privilege of being welcomed at the Palace of Versailles for a few days. On site, they took the famous general culture test , also took lessons in good manners and learned to parade. But that’s not all, the regional Misses were able to discover the emblematic place of the country built by Louis XIV in an exceptional way. Private visits, access to rooms forbidden to tourists, rediscovery of French history … a preparatory trip that will certainly remain in everyone’s memories.
This successful experience does not make the contenders for the title regret not having flown to a paradise island as tradition initially wanted . ” Distant trip or not, I’m happy to be, ” said Justine Dubois , Miss Poitou-Charentes at Gala . The 24-year-old young woman is especially happy to be able to honor her sister , who tried her luck at Miss France in 2017, without coming out a winner. ” So I’m doing it for both of us ,” she explains.
The participation of Justine Dubois therefore has an air of déjà vu for her father. According to her, the latter would now have a strong opinion on the beauty contest . ” He is convinced that everything is played in advance . At the same time, he protects himself. If I lose, he can always say that the election is rigged, ” she had fun revealing to our colleagues. Originally from Angoulême, this graduate of a master’s degree in international purchasing will however do everything to prove her wrong and hopes to stand out on election night on December 19.
