  3. Norman — Excellent choices. And you’re also right when you say that the Miss Earth pageant is difficult to forecast. I think Turkey or South Africa are strong contenders, but who knows what will happen on coronation night? On a related note, I want to ask you who among these front runners in your opinion, if named Miss Earth, might give the most mileage and be advantageous to the pageant (e.g., media attention; potential broadcasting expansion in future, hosting venues, etc.)? And do you think the organizers factor this sort of thing in determining their final ranking?

    • Glenn, if we are to go by recent developments alone, Russia would be the likeliest winner to invite a more widespread attention to the title given her sharp and vocal views on a lot of things (her country for now, how much for if it already involves global views). But if I will just stick to my Top 4, I would say that Venezuela can bring more popularity to Miss Earth – initially in Latin America, but eventually going beyond that territory due to the number of pageant-related projects she will need to get involved with. But then again, Ecuador’s Olga Alava has done a good job as well (and with her established Asian connections to boot). So between Turkey and South Africa, I would pick Tamerin as more capable of shooting beyond her country’s environmental concerns and bringing a heightened level of relevance for the crown.

      And yes, the organizers do factor that in, but not to the point of undue coercion. But I think it’s more important for them to have a winner who is unconditionally committed, cooperative and easy to get along with. 🙂

      • Thanks, Norman.

        On another note, reading the list of broadcasters for Miss Earth, I was surprised to discover that it’s not being broadcast at all in Latin America (!) despite having had SIX Latina winners in its 11-year history. It would be great for the pageant if either Telemundo (Puerto Rico) or Univision (U.S.) — the two largest Spanish-speaking networks in the Americas — were to assume a role in this very significant broadcasting market.

      • After the 2012 edition, I am hopeful that it will air in Latin America by next year. Or if Venezuela wins tomorrow, a delayed telecast via Venevision will be most helpful in snowballing the pageant’s viewership in South America and thereabouts.
