In less than 24 hours from now, Miss Universe 2011 will be crowned. At this point, I’m putting my name at stake with this Final Five prediction for Miss Universe 2011. But where’s the fun of armchair-judging if I don’t go this far in projecting a winner? Anyways, I am listing down these ladies with due consideration given to the internal politics, lobbying and the like that is not at all unusual with Donald Trump’s pageant.
It warms my heart to wish for an Asian domination this year, like what happened way back in 1988. Hopefully, it will take place again with 3 of the Final 5 coming from this region. With a 16-10-5 set-up, my Final 5, in alphabetical order, are:
Oh how I will rejoice if these five ladies make up the Final 5 cast in the actual results! Of course, I’d like to see Miss Philippines win the whole thing, but I would be glad to see Miss Malaysia get the title as well. But if Miss China ends up as the victor, I’ll just take consolation from the fact that Asia has a new Miss Universe.
Now if nobody among the Asians take it all the way, anyone among Miss Greece and Miss Ukraine would make outstanding queens.
Over and above these predictions, I am hoping for a fabulously breath-taking finale at Credicard Hall. If you want to catch it on the web, you can watch it over at Livestream. 😉
