Miss Universe 2013 is only a few hours away from crowning its new beauty queen in Moscow. Cynthia Duque, representing Mexico, wants to win the third title for her home country, but controversy surrounding her weight might be a factor that will cost her the crown. It all started when the Miss Universe organization made photos available to the public of the competing queens in swimsuits. It didn't take long before social media picked up on the picture and negative comments starting inundating Twitter and Facebook. The Nuevo León beauty was seen in a white bikini showing off her curves and it could possibly be the angle of where the picture was taken that gives Duque the appearance of looking fuller, but not fat. "Mrs. Lupita Jones [Former Miss Universe and Nuestra Belleza organizer], I direct myself to you in a respectful manner to ask you why Cynthia has not been dethroned knowing her weight condition, Raul Alex wrote on Twitter.

This is not the first time Lupita Jones has had issues with her contestants gaining weight. In 2011 Cynthia de la Vega who was going to compete in the Miss World competition was stripped away from her crown after she allegedly gained 6lbs. Jones said in a press conference that her weight gain was not the factor and cited De La Vega was not being diligent with her responsibilities. In 1996 when Alicia Machado won the crown for Venezuela she gained a little weight which put her crown in danger. To appease the public she was placed in a strict dietary and workout regime to lose away those pounds. Duque has received criticism for her alleged weight gain and could possibly cost her the crown, but do you think the judges will notice and give her negative points?

Miss Universe 2013 beauty pageant gala will be broadcasted live starting at 9pm EST on NBC and on Telemundo in Spanish. The crowning moment will also be seen around the world when it streams directly on the official YouTube account and Latin Times will have the minute by minute details as everything unfolds in Moscow. Hosting the event will be Thomas Roberts from "SNBC Live" with former Spice Girls group member Melanie Brown. Musical guests include Panic! At The Disco and EMIN. We have 19 women representing our Latin countries and we are all rooting for them to win. Check out fun facts here and tell us who your favorite to win is.
