CROATIA – Eni Sukunda. Her prospects for advancing to the Top 25 depends if there are enough people who appreciate her slightly elongated face and mature vibe. She’s actually good looking, but not for everyone’s tastes.
CZECH REPUBLIC – Tereza Vickova. This brunette has an ingenue prettiness that could assure her of a Top 25 slot.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC – Lia Rossis. She’s good looking and polished but there are other ladies sparkling brighter than her.
ECUADOR – Katty Lopez. See DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, though she’s emanating a less charismatic version of J. Lo (Jennifer Lopez).
EL SALVADOR – Pia Trigueros. Her pretty features look vaguely Asian and that could intrigue judges enough for her to make the Top 25.
ETHIOPIA – Bitaniya Yosef. She’s one of two very pretty Africans in this batch, so she seems to have an inside track into the Top 25.
FINLAND – Erika Helin. This blonde is pretty but her figure is a tad thicker and her presentation not as polished as other contenders, which could hamper her chances of advancing to the Top 25.
FRANCE – Deborah Jacquin-Gottfried. There are flattering and unflattering angles about her, so I’m not that confident of her chances making the Top 25.
GERMANY – Mona Schafnitzl. Yes, there are some beauty icons like Vanessa Paradis and Lauren Hutton who are known for their gap teeth, but it’s likely that feature on this lady would be taken agains er and prevent her from advancing to the Top 25.
GIBRALTAR – Sian Dean. She’s attractive, but not polished or charismatic enough to make the Top 25.
GUADELOUPE – Lorina Victoria Moderne. Her braids remind me of actress Zendaya at the Oscars two years ago, and I’m tempted to be like Giuliana Rancic and make that offensive joke, but I won’t do that. She’s attractive but I don’t think her braids are enough to impress the judges.
INDIA – Peden Ongmu Nangyal. Something about her name and facial features made me think she originates from an area close to the Indian-Chinese border as her name sounds Tibetan and her features seem to have a touch of East Asian on them. She may make the Top 25, but giving India a back-to-back win is not likely.
INDONESIA – Karina Nadila. She exudes cosmopolitan Asian sophistication, which could make her a contender for the Top 10 and beyond.
