There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
- Colin Powell

As the Ingrid Marie Rivera picture below proves, this contestant took the words of the former Secretary of State to heart.

During the Miss Puerto Rico pageant a couple weeks ago, Rivera mentally rattled off her winning checklist. The last item appears to have helped the most, as Ingrid Marie Rivera earned the crown... along with the suspicion of police who think she pretended to be poisoned in order to garner the sympathy vote.

If the lovely Ingrid Marie Rivera has taught the next generation of aspiring beauty queens anything, it's that pretending to be maced never hurts your chances.


i would just like to say that Ingrid is my Cousin, the last time i seen her was in 1988 when she was almost 4 years old, and over the years she has worked extreamly hard to be where she is today, you have got to be kiddin yourselves if you think for any reason that someone would risk an entire lifetime of work for any reason, a jelouse attack is not an option? "right" the problem with you reporters and tabloids is that your willing to prejudge rather than just reporting...." Igrid" we are all proud of you, and we love you, Watch Your Back!!!..........Primo Raymond
