It is already May 1 and in just over two weeks from now, the 69th Miss Universe will be crowned at the Seminole Hard Rock Auditorium in Hollywood, Florida.
Seventy-four (74) delegates will register starting May 3-4. And based on what we have seen among them prior to their arrival in the host city, I am pleased to share my Pre-Registration Picks in alphabetical order. I am arranging them this way because I would like to see how they will settle in for the first couple of days before placing them in terms of ranking or hierarchy.
Here are the twenty (20) I have high expectations on. Let’s see if they will deliver on either the hype or the kind of impact they have shown the past few weeks:
Argentina – Alina Luz Akselrad
Australia – Maria Thattil
Brazil – Julia Gama
Colombia – Laura Olascuaga
Curacao – Chantal Wiertz
Czech Republic – Klára Vavruskova
Iceland – Elisabet Hulda Snorradottir
India – Adline Castelino
Indonesia – Ayu Maulida Putri
Jamaica – Miqueal-Symone Williams
Laos – Christina Lasasimma
Mexico – Andrea Meza
Nepal – Anshika Sharma
Philippines – Rabiya Mateo
Puerto Rico – Estefania Soto Torres
Romania – Bianca Lorena Tirsin
South Africa – Natasha Joubert
Thailand – Amanda Obdam
USA – Asya Danielle Branch
Venezuela – Mariangel Villasmil
I still have at least five (5) bubbling under and they might just manage to pull down a few of the ladies above a week from now.
Who are yours, dear readers?
One of the strongest Latinas vying for the 69th Miss Universe is Estefanía Soto Torres of Puerto Rico. Her academic credentials are nothing to sneer at. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Foreign Languages and a Masteral in Intercultural Mediation – with sociological, anthropological and gender perspective. All of her learnings were acquired in three different countries – France, Belgium and Mexico. She speaks English, French and Spanish, and can do conversational Dutch. On a lighter side, though, she is a collector of lip balms and National Geographic Magazines.
Now in these photos, she presents her National Costume for the competition: “For this National Costume in honor of Puerto Rican Walter Mercado’s life trajectory and unifying message of love and acceptance, 86,400 pieces of hand-set Austrian crystals were used.
The crown is made in golden jewelery and precious stones denote the 12 zodiacal signs and the stars in the sky. It is designed and composed of 78 separate pieces, one for each town of Puerto Rico, and includes 6 last quarter moons that embody the search for our sixth universal crown!”
