Pious Practice Crossing Over into Superstition

I saw a commercial for Nuestra Belleza Latina, and one of the former winners was apparently doing a blessing/sign of the cross on the latest winner. Again, why? It seems like it's an example of unthinking folk piety, bordering on superstition. Is a blessing really congruent with such an occasion? Should thieves make the sign of the cross after they successfully rob someone?
