A month full of activities and event challenges has passed and we saw 116 beautiful ladies gave their all in order to get a coveted spot in the finale. We saw how pre-arrival candidates were overshadowed by the “surprises” and the “underdogs”. Others were able to bounce back as the major event challenges were staged while there were few who never recovered. However, for pageant fans like me, it is a common knowledge that Miss World is unpredictable in its set of semifinalists and official winners. H*ll yeah, even the schedule of events and cities to visit were changed during the pageant proper! Thus, predicting it is a challenge that we all enjoy to take!
Here are my favorite candidates to win Miss World 2012 :D Good luck to all the ladies…
Miss World 2012: Jamaica (Deanna Robins)
My eyes were set on Deanna the moment she first stepped the Miss World stage. She possesses the qualities of a true Miss World: A genuine smile, a warm demeanor and a competitive spirit! Her biggest achievement is making in in almost all event challenges of the competition and even reaching the finalists group in two events. Her smile radiates in every picture and that smile can melt even the thickest glacier :)
1st Princess: China (Wen Xia Yu)
Right on the heels of Deanna is Wen Xia Yu of China! The location might be in Ordos Inner Mongolia but it seems that it’s Ms. China who’s playing the hosting duties this year. Being the host is a double-edged sword – most of the time host countries are assured of a semifinalist slot but rarely wins the competition. However, I think that this lady was able to prove herself worthy of a semifinalist slot with her exceptional performance in the event challenges. She is also competitive but handles the pressure well. She is probably the most graceful candidate in the competition. She gives me a “respected-Chinese-lady” vibe and I am loving it!
2nd Princess: Mexico (Mariana Berumen Reynoso)
Mariana deserves a very high placement this year! She worked hard from Day 1; though it started really slow, she slowly transformed herself into a serious contender with an exceptional performance in the Top Model competition. She is a complete package: ethereal beauty, statuesque and intelligent! I really enjoyed her profile video :D Mexico needs to win Miss World and Mariana is the perfect Mexican candidate to win!
Australia (Jessica Michelle Kahawaty)
Perseverance and hard work pays off! Jessica represented Lebanon in Miss International but failed to win the crown. Others would say “That’s it!” but not her. Such an admirable spirit here! Jessica learned from her previous beauty pageant experience and is now playing her cards well!
Brazil (Mariana Notarangelo)
Mariana is a silent killer. She were nowhere to be found when the pageant started but after slaying the competition in such a very low profile way, she went directly to the top and is now in everyone’s list. A finalist in both Beach Fashion and Top Model and a semifinalist in Talent, Mariana is convincing everyone and my guess is that we are all happy to obey :D She has a pretty clear view of the crown so I will not be surprised seeing her wearing it tomorrow night!
Colombia (Barbara Turbay)
A classic beauty from the Americas, Barbara can easily claim the title of the Most Beautiful Candidate from the Americas this year! Her body is rockin’ with all those curves which made her a part of the Beach Fashion finalist set.
Philippines (Queenierich Rehman)
She was my top bet for the Miss World Philippines crown and I am very happy with her performance! She did a wonderful job as a finalist in the Talent event challenge but her inability to penetrate the Top Model & Beach Fashion finalist group might be a setback. Fans need not to worry though because Queenie has a wonderful personality and communicates really well with people thus I am guessing that she aced her interview.
Wales (Sophie Elizabeth Moulds)
If Poland has the best lips, Wales has the best set of eyes in the competition. My friends know that I am a sucker of big-beautiful-expressive eyes and that is why I am very “addicted” to Sophie! She also has one of the best bodies in the competition :) I am rooting for her to win the Beach Fashion event challenge.
South Sudan (Atong Demach)
Atong’s star shone really bright when she joined Miss Earth. Now, it is even brighter! With a better styling and a handful of beauty pageant lessons, she is taking Ordos by storm. She is taking this competition seriously with a Finalist finish in Top Model. She will be in the semifinalist roster tomorrow!
Kazakhstan (Eugeniya Klishina)
She might not be as strong as Ms. Kazakhstan last year but Eugeniya is doing all the right things to assure herself a spot in the finale. After placing in all challenge events she is making sure that she keeps the sexiness for tomorrow’s big day (kidding!) but seriously, her innocent sex appeal is her strongest weapon!
Poland (Weronika Szmajdrinska)
Poland is my sentimental favorite this year! She is beautiful and her lips are to die for. She is a classy woman and she was not ignored by the organization. I will be very happy seeing the crown on her head!
South Africa (Remona Moodley)
South African candidates are successful in Miss World and Remona is not different. She might be perceived as “slower” in pace compare to other candidates but I think her biggest weapon is her personality and my gut is telling me that she would ace her interviews and be part of the list :D We’ll see!
Venezuela (Gabriella Ferrari Peirano)
A pageant is NOT complete without a Ms. Venezuela in the finale! Gabriella’s sweet and appealing demeanor will not be ignored by the organization and the judges!
Spain (Aranzazu Estevez Godoy)
Her beauty is not the same with those of previous Ms Espana! And I am loving it. Her strengths are her beautiful face and catwalk skills. She seems to be enjoying a big advantage going to the finale with a strong finish in the Top Model event challenge.
Puerto Rico (Janelee Marcus Chaparro Colon)
What I love from this girl is her consistency! Put her in any situation and she can show you why she is worthy to be the next Miss World! The organization may have left her in the cold, excluding her from a finalist spot in any of the event challenger but her candids and videos are saying otherwise.
I wish everyone the best of luck later today and thank you girls for sharing your lives to all of us!!!
