Stephanie Naumoska of the Miss Universe contest. She IS anorexic! No if's, but's, or maybe's. She is WAY too thin!

I'm going to quote from this website, as I think they say it all -

She was hoping to represent her country in the Miss Universe contest, and she certainly had a figure that turned heads. Unfortunately for Stephanie Naumoska, and to the consternation of health experts, it was for all the wrong reasons.

Critics said the 19-year-old was just skin and bone. With her 31-25-35 measurements she seemed to have trouble filling her already skimpy bikini as she paraded before the judges at the Australian finals of the pageant in Sydney.

Stephanie Naumoska in the Australia finals of the Miss Universe contest: Her ribs and hip bones are clearly visible. She was tall enough - at 5ft 10in - to be the perfect height for a model but what has alarmed health experts is her weight.

She weighs only 7st 7lb and has a Body Mass Index of 15.1 - and that, by World Health Organisation standards, means she is malnourished. Her BMI should be between 18.5 and 24.9 to fall into the ‘average’ category.

When the pageant organisers were asked why they had allowed Miss Naumoska to parade before the cameras when her ribs and pelvic bones could be seen protruding alarmingly, an official reply was that her look was all to do with her heritage. ‘She’s Macedonian,’ said one official. But a spectator at the event at the Hilton Hotel commented: ‘Side on, if you didn’t look carefully enough, you could miss her - she was that thin.’ Dieticians urged the Sydney model to seek urgent medical attention because she was dangerously underweight.

Healthy? Miss Naumoska, claims she eats well and is not unhealthy.

Health expert Melanie McGrice said she was well under the World Health Organisation benchmark for malnutrition and added: ‘I would certainly want to be doing an assessment of her diet to make sure she doesn’t have some type of eating disorder.’ She said Miss Naumoska needed urgent blood tests, diet analysis and a general body assessment.
Even Australian politicians have joined in the debate.

Carmel Tebutt, the acting premier of New South Wales, said that allowing her to enter the contest when she looked so disturbingly thin sent the wrong message to young women who looked up to glamorous models.‘The main thing is to encourage girls and young women to put health before thinking about trying to fit into a particular type of body image,’ she said.

The Australian Medical Association called on pageant organisers to impose a minimum Body Mass Index of 20. In this swimwear shoot, the model appears less bony and a healthier weight. But officials said too much emphasis was being placed on Miss Naumoska’s lifestyle rather than her ethnic background. Deborah Miller, director of the contest, said the model blamed her Macedonian heritage for her thin appearance.
‘The women do have long, lithe bodies and small bones,’ she said. ‘It’s their body type, just as Asian girls tend to be rather small. She doesn’t have an eating disorder or anything like that. There’s nothing wrong with her.’

But nutritionist Susie Burrell said: ‘Macedonian body? I’ve not seen anything like that anywhere to support that. What I see in the photos is muscle wastage on the upper arm and legs.’

Miss Naumoska was beaten in the final by 21-year-old TV presenter and model Rachel Finch, who at 5ft 9in and measuring 34-24-34 appeared to have just a little more flesh than her skinny rival.

Now, I couldn't have said it all better. The fact that her bones are sticking through her skin says it all. She IS anorexic. There's no if's, but's, or maybe's. When a person is so thin that you can see almost every bone poking through their skin, they are anorexic.

I've seen footage of her on some of our tv shows ''eating''. Definitely NOT the word for it. She picked up a piece of cake, or a bar of something, and slowly moved it toward her mouth. Her hand appeared crippled, she looked like she was going to puke if the food got any closer, and she was not happy when she took a small bite. On an other show, she sat there shovelling food into her mouth, putting more in before swallowing. ''Trying'' to prove that she ate ''5 or 6 small meals a day''.

Yeah, what, an apple, or a banana. Even a coffee or a handful of m&m's are a meal to some of these girls.

She's also been to America scouting around on talk shows to ''convince'' everyone that she's NOT anorexic, but very healthy. She may look it, but she aint it! Otherwise why would she have the need to fly to another country and tell everyone??????????? Obviously no one here in Australia believed her. Do the Americans????

My opinion and point is, that if we can see your bones, not only are you anorexic, you are extremely unattractive to the majority of the population.

A very healthy Jewels xxoo


  1. She definately has a problem and the organisers covering it up are making the situation worse...
    maybe she was anorexic and has now started eating so she technically isnt ano now but she was...

    who knows, but she looks disgusting.

  2. She does, and most people on tv who have been asked what she looks like has said 'not good'. The guys asked, don't find it attractive, and me as a woman, don't like it either. I think it's gross.
