Rumors are abuzz that Stephanie de Zorzi won’t be going to Miss Earth 2014 after all, and that her successor Maira Alexandra Rodriguez Herrera will be fielded instead. (Photo credit: Bellezavenezolana.net)

After last night’s post about the possible eruption of a controversy involving two Miss Earth Australia sash-wearers arriving in Manila for the competition, here comes another one that involves the Venezuelan reps. According to rumors, Osmel Sousa has allegedly decided not to send (and effectively dethroned
) Miss Venezuela Earth 2013 Stephanie de Zorzi to Manila because of the latter’s decision to concentrate on her blossoming career in modeling. And in her place, it was allegedly added that Miss Venezuela Earth 2014 Maira Alexandra Rodriguez Herrera is now being rushed to represent Venezuela.
I really wouldn’t mind. For as long as one of Osmel’s ladies will arrive in Manila, it’s all good. After all, Maira has been a favorite of mine ever since the pre-pageant of Miss Venezuela 2014.
Really, all of this free indirect publicity news for Miss Earth 2014 is pouring like a bottle of honey with a bottom leak.

Did you miss watching the complete Miss Venezuela 2014 beauty extravaganza on Venevision?
Well, here’s the chance to see and appreciate even more the beautiful Venezuelan Goddesses and the eventual selection of the best of the best who will carry the South American country’s colors in the big pageants of 2015.

And so it came to pass. Osmel Sousa is still not ready to make someone like ebony beauty Jennifer Saa win a national title for Venezuela just yet.
But at least, a less ebony-skinned representative (Erika Pinto of Zulia) still made Top 5.
And without further ado, here are the Miss Venezuela 2014 winners.
Miss Venezuela Universo 2014 Mariana Jimenez of Guarico
Miss Venezuela International 2014 Edymar Martinez Blanco of Anzoategui
Miss Venezuela Tierra 2014 Maira Alexandra Rodríguez Herrera of Amazonas
Miss Venezuela 2014 1st Runner-Up Lorena Santos Agli of Distrito Capital
Miss Venezuela 2014 2nd Runner-Up Erika Pinto of Zulia
How do you like them, especially the new titleholders? :-)
Osmel Sousa (center, with briefcase) will usher in a new set of Miss Venezuela winners very soon!
Tonight in Caracas (Friday morning in Manila
), Miss Venezuela 2014/15 will be crowned during the finals to be conducted inside Estudio 1 de Venevisión. Even if the reigning Miss Venezuela Universo Migbelis Castellanos hasn’t been fielded yet (in fact, neither have Michelle Bertolini and Stephanie de Zorzi been sent for competition to date
), her successor will be known. And that girl will definitely be sent to Miss Universe 2015 which could happen very late next year.
Topping the list of my hot favorites going into the coronation night are Miss Anzoategui Edymar Martínez Blanco, Miss Distrito Capital Lorena Santos Agli and Miss Guarico Mariana Coromoto Jiménez. They seem to have the momentum in their favor. But more personally, I’m not giving up on Miss Falcon Jennifer Angulo Saá for now. My wish is for another black Venezuelan to represent the country abroad. In addition, my two other picks to hopefully place are Miss Amazonas Maira Alexandra Rodriguez Herrera and Miss Trujillo Débora Paola Medina Pineda.
My Top 5 (Anzoategui, Distrito Capital, Guarico, Falcon and Amazonas) plus one spoiler (Trujillo)
I won’t be able to follow the finals on real time. But for sure, I will look forward to knowing who will be the new muses of Osmel Sousa. ;-)
Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler finally reunites with Osmel Sousa
Molly is happy to be home!
It may have taken her this long to finally schedule a much-awaited homecoming to Venezuela. But it was all worth it. Much like saving the best for last, literally.
After traveling all over the world from Azerbaijan to the Philippines, Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela “Molly” Isler recently went to Caracas and reunited with her countrymen, most especially Osmel Sousa who has groomed her to become the Most Beautiful Woman in the Universe.
And both Molly and Osmel couldn’t hide their excitement in seeing each other again, especially that the new Miss Venezuela winners will be crowned hours from now (early Friday morning Manila time).
If only her mentor could say, “You are the most wonderful Miss Universe ever!” ;-)

Osmel Sousa giving the thumbs up to his new set of Miss Venezuela official hopefuls
It takes a lot to make Osmel Sousa a very happy man. Given his high standards for beauty – perfectionist even – he will not settle for anything less than the steep benchmarks he is world-renowned for. And the final assembly of Official Candidates
for Miss Venezuela 2014
has elicited a big smile on his face (left photo
). Who wouldn’t be excited with this group?
How about you, dear readers? Who among the ladies do you fancy? :-D
My early favorites for Miss Venezuela 2014
The 24 ladies who will vie for Miss Venezuela 2014 via La Magia de ser Miss
Click above for a larger view
Osmel Sousa is doing something different this year. Miss Venezuela 2014 will be elected via a reality program
on Venevision titled “La Magia de ser Miss
” (The Magic of Being Miss
) where 24 outstanding beauties will compete for the crowns that will eventually award three of them the right to represent the South American nation in the 2015 editions of Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Earth.
In a batch where the tallest (1.83m) and the youngest (18 years old) contenders are all in one contender (Rafaela Gregori Castañeda), it is interesting to see a skinhead (Jennifer Saa) participating for the first time. We all know how important long and flowing tresses are for this pageant, so it bears watching how far she will last in the competition which is like a beauty-survival-of-the-fittest. Watch the premiere episode below:

“La Magia de ser Miss” started airing on Venevision’s Super Sabado Sensacional timeslot last August 9 and will be showing a new episode every Saturday night thereafter.
