Miss Universe Riyo
Mori - worst day for bettors ever
The 2007 Miss Universe became the 20-year-old
Miss Japan, Riyo Mori, in Mexico City last night.
was by far the worst day for entertainment bettors. Riyo Mori
was 150/1 to win the 2007 Miss Universe by many odds makers
around the world, but not many bets were collected on Miss
Japan. For example, the British online betting website
Bet365 had as their favorite to
win Miss Tanzania. For some reason. But Riyo Mori was not a name
clicked on the betting ticked by many people. "Miss Japan" was
definitely not the answer people who asked "who won the Miss
Universe?" were expecting.
We did not publish odds for the Miss Universe,
because there were way to many options to choose from and
betting was a real gamble - as it proved later last night. Bt I
have to admit, Riyo Mori, although very beautiful, was never
considered by anyone from the staff. Most votes in the office
were for Miss Korea (on the hot picture left).
Although, a great day for the bookmakers who
took bets on the Miss Universe. Hardly any payouts from the
millions of dollars taken by the bookies all over the world for
the 2007 Miss Universe winner.
