As if Venezuela didn’t have enough problems already, now their favorite pastime, organizing beauty pageants, are also going wrong.

The Miss Venezuela contest has been suspended after allegations of sexual favors by candidates and financial corruption have emerged online.

Former Miss Venezuela participants have accused other contestants of receiving money from businessmen and government officials in exchange for sexual favors.

The current casting for Miss Venezuela has now been suspended in the light of these allegations as the jury announced an internal review into the claims.

Given the widespread poverty and hunger in the country, any favors that any of these women can do for their families at this point is of course very welcome. It was therefore not surprising to find that some girls who had taken part in the competition benefited from government corruption for their families.

The Miss Venezuela organization said it would check with women had "been involved in activities that break with the values and ethics of the event."
