First off, l only considered the predictions sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and with corresponding address and contact details. So for those who posted theirs as a reply in one of the blog announcements about “Predict the 63rd Miss Universe Pageant and her 4 Runners-up”, I did not include your guesses anymore. Sorry.
Among the four hundred eighteen (418) emailed entries, nobody got all the five correct placements right. When I was checking all the predictions, I separated all the ones with Miss Colombia Paulina Vega as winner. And there were only eleven (11). From this small bunch, the runners-up were all misses in rankings. But one actually had Miss USA Nia Sanchez as her 1st Runner-up.
And so, the winner of our prediction contest is Venus L. Otomo from Cavite. She is now the proud owner of a brand new Zenfone 5 and P1,500 shopping voucher from Bench (I had to switch from SM Store due to a small glitch). I already emailed Venus about the win and hopefully, she can drop by the office in Makati to pick up the prizes.
