Except for Miss Spain (4th from left), the remaining girls are all from Latin America (left to right): Panama, Guatemala, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Peru, Paraguay and Mexico
Misses El Salvador and Chile
In any global beauty competition, the candidates from Latin America always seem to have the most attractive (and most prepared
) set of contenders. And Miss International 2014 is no different. In fact, there are already potential winners in the list of almost-twenty joiners from the region.
If you ask me, I would consider Vianey Del Rosario Vazquez Ramirez of Mexico, Zuleika Kiara Suarez Torrenegra of Colombia and Michelle Bertolini of Venezuela as the three best Latina delegates. But if I push for a Top 5, I would definitely include Aileen Bernal of Panama and possibly Fiorella Ximena Peirano Medina of Peru.

Since there will only be a Top 10 during the finals this year, though, a good number of casualties in the Spanish-speaking bloc is in the offing.
