Last year in Las Vegas, the Miss Universe crown returned to USA after 15 long years. Olivia Culpo of Rhode Island won the Miss Universe 2012 edging out Janine Tugonon of Philippines. I am not the biggest fan of Janine and Olivia was not a favorite so I didn’t have that much feelings here but I feel for my friends and my countrymen who celebrated Janine’s inclusion in the Top 5 (third consecutive for the country) but fell a step short from winning the coveted crown.

With Ara Arida as the representative of the country this year, will she rise up to the challenge on the finale and match, if not exceed, whatever Janine achieved last year? I am not Ara’s biggest fan but if I will be asked to choose between her and Janine, I will take Ara any day… So I am crossing my fingers!
