One fact that remains indisputable with the annual Miss Venezuela Pageant is the high quality of delegates Osmel Sousa and his team present year after year. Slim pickings are two words that will never be part of their vocabulary. 2011 has another batch of really outstanding contenders. It is easy to remove the few who do not come on as strong bets and hard to determine the winners from among the great majority of the rest.
Four of these lovelies will become the country’s representatives to Miss World 2011, Miss Universe 2012, Miss International 2012 and Miss Earth 2012. And thus far, I am starting to like the following:
Miss Tachira, Milagro Manrique
Miss Distrito Capital, Gabriella Ferrari
Miss Lara, Carla Rodrigues
Miss Zulia, Maria Gabriela Criollo
Miss Barinas, Astrid Lozada
Miss Cojedes, Angela Ramirez
Miss Portuguesa, Andrea Baptista
But these seven are not my final picks yet. There is still more than a handful of deserving ones that I need to review further. Suffice it to say, this will be a better year than the last. Most definitely. 😉
By the way, the finals of Miss Venezuela 2011 will be on October 15, 2011.
