Final Q&A up next!!!
Judge Manny Pacquiao was picked by Miss USA as the first to ask a question in the Top 5.
A second Final Question is now happening.
“WHAT IS THE GREATEST CONTRIBUTION OF YOUR COUNTRY TO THE WORLD?”
Top 5 after the Q&A. IMO, it could be a toss between Jamaica and Ukraine, with Colombia as a possible sneaker.
I still feel that JAMAICA should win. But I can take UKRAINE.
