MISS WORLD 2015: AT THE HOMESTRETCH (PART 7)

SAMOA – Latafale Alofa Auva’a.  She is going to bring forth the Samoan breakthrough as she made Top Five in both Sports (as part of the Orange team) and Talent (with her cover of the multilingual version of that Frozen hit, “Let It Go”).   Her BWAP project delivering books for schoolchildren may also help bolster her profile and secure her place, though no confirmation of a shortlist placement, yet.

SCOTLAND – Mhairi Fergusson.  Her only impact thus far was in Sports, where she made Top 24 for the Red team.  But I have to note that her designer dress is rather provocative, with exposed cleavage.  I think she was dinged for that that is why she was not allowed to advance further in Top Model.

SERBIA – Marija Ćetković.  She’s plain, but at least she made the Top 24 in Sports to shore up her fortunes in this pageant.  Her background as a member of her country’s national basketball team served her well here.

SEYCHELLES – Linne Freminot.  Her biggest highlight is that she was 2nd place in the Sports challenge event.  Other than that, she’s at a disadvantage as even she has a BWAP project working with children of prisoners, she doesn’t have a video for it.

SINGAPORE – Charity Lu Lu Seng.  Her best prospect so far is Multimedia as she’s Top Five in the Alipay portion of this challenge event.

SLOVAKIA – Lujza Straková[.  She’s attractive, and yes, model-worthy, but she fell short in Top Model (and did not figure in any challenge event for that matter).

SLOVENIA – Mateja Kociper.  She only made an impact in Talent, making Top 30.

SOUTH AFRICA – Liesl Laurie.  She made Top 30 in Top Model and Talent and Top 24 in Sports as part of the Red team.  I think she’ll secure a place in the semifinals, but to make it a back-to-back with Rolene Strauss?  A bit of a longshot, as she missed an opportunity on BWAP as her video was frustratingly brief.

SOUTH SUDAN – Ajah Deng.  She’s not as striking as 2012 4th placer Atong Demach, but she made an impact in Top Model and made the shortlist for BWAP with her project battling the disease of fistula.  She is also likely to score points for Multimedia as she’s Top 10 in the Alipay activity.

SPAIN – Mireia Lalaguna Royo.  She made Top 30 in both Talent and Top Model and secured a Top 24 finish in Sports for the Red team, so she seems one who has secured a semifinalist spot.

12377761_10153852729544974_8342868045583704888_o

SRI LANKA – Thilini Amarasooriya.  She has not figured in any challenge event, not even Top Model as she noted she’s a professional model.  Though she declared a BWAP project, she has no video to show for it.

12371243_10153849157399974_3055564025902339911_o

ST. KITTS & NEVIS – Jackiema Nichelle Flemming.  She’s actually a worthwhile contender, but the only place she’ll garner additional points on top of preliminary interview scores was that she submitted a BWAP video.

SWEDEN – Natalia Fogelund.  Nick Verreos hated her hot mess of a bulky black-and-white gown, but somehow the Miss World powers-that-be felt she has the looks of a Top Model so she was shortlisted in this event.  She has a BWAP project helping victims of cancer, but no video.

12378119_10153852729119974_6746027842518881753_o

TANZANIA – Lilian Deus Kamazima.  Just like Miss South Sudan, her BWAP project was related to fistula, and she made the shortlist.  That’s her only ace as she hasn’t figured in the other challenge events.
