Miss Universe, Really?

When flipping through the news headlines this morning I noticed two things:

1. Miss Universe was crowned last night.
2. Bret Michaels hosted the pageant.

Of all the things that make you go "Hmmm...", I wouldn't expect this to be more than a tiny blip. There are much more newsworthy head-scratchers (involving mosques and stem-cells to name a few). However, these two pieces of information collided in my brain and caused me to stare for a full minute at my screen--not reading the article, but just staring in awe.

What had me so perplexed? The truth is, I'm not entirely sure. But I have a few theories.
