Miss Universe 2011

Priscila Machado placed 3rd (second runner-up) in the Miss Universe 2011 pageant.

Machado has dated with the Brazilian Swimmer and Gold medalist in the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, César Cielo.

After she was crowned Miss Brasil 2011, Machado was booed by the audience at HSBC Brasil. Supporters of other candidates, outraged by the victory of Miss Rio Grande do Sul, shouted insults against the winner, such as “peladona” (naked) and “marmelada” (a term used in Brazilian Portuguese to refer to a situation where someone cheats in a game or vote).[8] One of the reasons of the audience reaction was a photo released a few days before the pageant in which Machado appears topless,[9] something forbidden by the rules of the contest. However, days after being crowned Miss Brasil 2011, the organization of the contest defended Machado’s title, claiming that the photo should not be considered, since it had not received authorization to be disclosed.
In addition to that, Machado also sparked further controversy after she revealed that she had done three plastic surgeries: breast augmentation, liposuction and rhinoplasty.
Machado was also met by loud booing during the preliminary phase of the Miss Universe pageant on September 8, mixed with cheers from the audience of mainly local Brazilians.[12] A few hours after the preliminary competition, Machado tweeted the following: “Respect is something good, and we all appreciate it. I work hard, seriously, and I have high morals. Nobody in this world has the right to judge me”.
