Venezuela is, without a doubt, the ultimate beauty pageant powerhouse. The Miss Venezuela Organization, under the leadership of Osmel Sousa, has won seven Miss Universe, six Miss World, seven Miss International and two Miss Earth crowns (so far)!
These titles were not won by sheer luck alone. Miss Venezuela candidates are at their best form during the nationals and the winners go through a rigorous preparation for their respective international pageants.
For Miss Venezuela 2017, 24 delegates will compete for the opportunity to represent the powerhouse in both Miss Universe 2018 and Miss International 2018. Here are the official candidates:
Maria Cecilia Guevara
Maria Yerardy Montoya
Maria Alejandra Veliz
Maria Sofia Contreras
Let us all wait for the assignment of the states per candidate which is expected to be announced later today! The coronation night is scheduled on November 9, 2017 hosted by one of my favorite Miss Venezuela queens – Mariangel Ruiz!
