NEW ZEALAND – Eva Louise Wilson. I find her one of the plainest faces in this year’s comeptition but she’s a good ccommunicator and has a slim figure to her credit.
NIGERIA – Oluchi Kalu. She could be deemed attractive enough but not quite a black or African standout.
NORTHERN IRELAND – Nicholle Hembra. See NEW ZEALAND, with a slightly prettier face.
PANAMA – Krysthelle Barretto Reichlin. She’s solid, but I don’t find her a standout. Her elaborate carnival national costume was impressive though, and deservingly short-liste.d
PARAGUAY – Noelia Katherine Masi. She has everything that it takes to possibly make the Top 25, but there is one distrubing quibble–her skinny figure doesn’t look like a healthy frame that you tend to worry about her. That factor might hinder her from making the Top 25.
PERU – Janick Maceta. She actually is residing in the US, and she has an excellent command of English. Yes, she also is a great communicator and made a major splash in the Preliminary Competition, especially with her sexily buffed figure and shimmering in a silver gown. Many are buzzing she could be the winner and I would agree with that, though there is one Asian rival she has to contend with.
PHILIPPINES – Resham Saeed. Her introduction video was a big blast–loaded with humorous inside jokes about the process preparing for pageants (or a modeling photo shoot) while also showcasing her superb communication skills. She is performing at a top level, even if some worry she’s not receiving as heavy a buzz, as say, THAILAND. I maintain she’s a shoo-in for the Top 25 with a play for the Top 10 and beyond.
POLAND – Kamila Świerc. You never discount this host country as again this country fielded a great looking babe. She’s undeniably a shoo-in for the Top 25–now, making a play for the Top 10 would be a major challenge with many charismatic stunners with stronger interview skills out there.
PORTUGAL – Carolina Liquito. There is an angularity in her facial features, but otherwise she’s very solid all throughout and could be a sleeper possibility for the Top 25.
PUERTO RICO – Shaleyka Cristine Vélez. She’s a great follow-up to the reigning queen though it will be a challenge for her to advance to the Top 10.
ROMANIA – Alexandra Stroe. She has what it takes to sustain her country’s streak in the Top 25. Now, it will be a bigger challenge for her to advance further to the Top 10 with the bevy of sterling contenders this year. Still, it is still possible.
RUSSIA – Valeriya Skolota. Many pageant fans and pundits may find her interview style a tad laconic, but she has superb stage chops and a lissome model’s figure that she makes an indelible presence. Some sites are pegging her as a possible front-runner, but I don’t see it–but she is noted for her business chops, too based on what we learned about her duirng the Supra-Chat.
RWANDA – Shanitah Umunyana. She’s the most stunning black African in this batch, and many are rooting for a slot to be open for her to make the Top 25. I hope there would be room for her, though mose attention is placed towards NAMIBIA among the African contingent.
SCOTLAND – Aimee McGarvie. This blonde’s cute and solid, but definitely out of contention for the Top 25.
SIERRA LEONE – Esther Yeanoh Kamara. She’s a great-looking African with a bit of Spontaneous Dignified Eloquence (SDE). Would that help her edge out RWANDA if there is another slot open for the Top 25 for Africa?
SINGAPORE – Naomi Huth. This Eurasian (she’s half-German) made a major splash and won her group during the Supra-Chat. She’s an excellent communicator and she is one of the most likely winners of the Supra-Chat. Like IRELAND, she would be a worthy member of the Top 25.
