Ris Low Never Gives Ups

They say if you want success you keep trying even when you’ve failed before.  After being dethroned Singapore’s infamous Ris Low is trying for the Miss World Crown again and this time she sounds more confident.  Read about it at Yahoo Singapore News.

If you have no idea who she is this should give you a taste of Ris. Just a warning – the video is pretty crude and not PG for sure. Well, at least the girl knows how to laugh at herself.

Loved the outfit she picked for when she meets her mother in law.

Meanwhile the Miss World CEO has slammed Singapore Paegeant standards. She’s not sure who Ris Low is, but she feels that women should not be degraded and judged totally on looks.

“I was shocked to hear that the representation of the Miss World brand has been diluted to such a degree here that I don’t recognise it anymore,” Ms Julia Morley, the British chairperson and CEO of Miss World Limited told The New Paper.

    Ris Low is actually a fascinating person. I had tea with her once and it was a REALLY interesting experience!

      She really is upbeat, and this is a classic case of making lemonade out of lemons. Not everyone needs to conform to society’s norm. & not everyone can say they invented a new word.

      I read a slogan somewhere which read insanity is the playground for creativity/ genious or something like that..I’m sure I got it wrong but it got stuck in my head as something inspiring.

        No matter what else I might think of her, I do admire how she can remain (more or less) unaffected by the things people say about her, because there are some really nasty things going on about her on the Internet.

        yeah that’s for sure…..she must be pretty strong to bear all that judgement. I think I would just crumble.

  2. I had no idea who she was–she’s a riot!
    Is Ris Low another form of the phrase “Low Rise”?

    • bookjunkie says:

      Ris is a young lady who is quite famous in Singapore, but I don’t think many people outside Singapore would be familiar with her. She’s a bit like Antoine Dodson or the Double Rainbow guy. She went viral with her spunky new word creation.
