Alizee Poulicek (hot name) was booed by 3,400 people when she failed to answer a question in Dutch during the Miss Belgium contest. She had to switch to French which the people of Antwerp did not like. Alizee speaks Czech, French and English, but not Dutch. Belgium has been without a government for around 200 days, because of the drama going on between the Dutch and French speaking parties.
Alizee was born in Belgium, but grew up in the Czech Republic. She moved back to Belgium only six years ago and lived in a mostly French-speaking town.
She said, "I have to try, learn more. I spoke almost no Dutch when I started this adventure." I'm sure the people will help her learn a few phrases…like the phrase "fuck off" maybe?
Miss Belgium's organizer isn't bothered at all by the fact that the winner was booed. She said, "I don't worry about this too much. It is the least painful thing. I would consider it different if they had said 'Miss Belgium is an ugly girl.'"
Exactly! Beauty pageant winners shouldn't talk anyway. It's best when they just stand there and look pretty like mannequins. Shit, we should enter in a mannequin and she'd probably win.
