Marelisa Gibson Villegas, 20, from Miranda, was proclaimed Miss Venezuela Universe 2010 and will attempt for a back-to-back-to-back victory in the Miss Universe Pageant 2010 in a yet undisclosed venue. On the other hand, Adriana Vasini, 22, from Zulia, earned the right to represent her country in the Miss World 2010 in Nha Trang, Vietnam by virtue of winning the Miss Venezuela World crown, while Elizabeth Mosquera, 18, from Trujillo, was the 3rd victor after being named Miss Venezuela International and will gear up for next year’s Miss International to be held in Japan and China. Completing the Top 5 are 1st Runner-Up Mariangela Bonnani of Tachira and 2nd Runner-Up Jessica Guillen of Amazonas.

Actually, I was able to pick 4 of the 5 winners in a previous blog. I missed Elizabeth Mosquera (who I personally placed just in the Top 10) and thought that Flory Diez of Anzoategui would take at least a runner-up slot. Just the same, I think that the new set of winners will set a higher benchmark level for the next round of international finals in 2010.
The gorgeous Marelisa Gibson waves to the crowd after winning the top plum.
Reigning Miss Universe and outgoing Miss Venezuela Universe Stefania Fernandez putting the sash on her successor, Marelisa Gibson. Do we see back-to-back-to-back wins in Miss Universe next year?
A prophetic picture? Before the finals, these ladies were photographed together and all 3 of them ended up winning the national pageant. Left to right, Adriana Vasini of Zulia, Elizabeth Mosquera of Trujillo and Marelisa Gibson of Miranda.
Congratulations to all the winners! I’m dead sure that at least one of them will win one of the big crowns next year. I’m going for a gut-feel and predict that Marelisa Gibson might just score her country’s 7th Miss Universe title.
