Spiked makeup and a gown soaked in pepper spray which caused her to swell up and break out in hives. And there's almost nothing worse than a beauty queen all uglied up by hives and swelling.

Seriously, this being called a prank when it was pretty clearly an attempt to derail Ingrid Marie Rivera's ascent to competing in the Miss Universe pageant.

Of course, the majority of interest in the story is because she's absolutely drop dead gorgeous and everyone loves a story with a smoking hot central character. But the intrigue of the monkey wrenching the show is pretty ripe stuff too.
