While Miss Grand International 2014 was not able to better its inaugural output of eighty-six (86) candidates last year, Nawat Itsaragrisil was still able to assemble a much improved group of eighty-five (85) contenders for 2014. In fact, the interest in the beauty pageant shot up in the eyes of pageant followers around the world that the selection of country reps has always been given more dedicated attention by their respective franchise holders and directors.
Here now are the twenty (20) beautiful stunners who, in my opinion, will make the first cut on October 7, the scheduled finals at the Indoor Huamark Stadium.
These six ladies are leading the pack for me
These fourteen (14) delegates complete my Top 20
Normally, the six leading contenders above should be clear shoo-ins for the Top 10. But the way I’ve sized up the pre-pageant activities (with some help from actual feedbacks of my various Thai contacts who have followed the daily grind out there), there are those who have really managed to shine a lot better than most of the initially favored reps. One example is Miss Ukraine who has slipped to #11 in my personal analysis.
My Top 10, thus, are the stunners pictured in the grid below.
But after further review, I decided that my Top 10 will be made up of the ladies in the photo grid above.
Who could be Nawat Itsaragrisil keeping his eyes on as the next Miss Grand International?
Filtering the Top 10 to a Top 5 can be a tough job. But it has to be fearlessly done. So in no particular order, I am now putting my bets on Yana Dubnik of Russia, Angelika Ogryzek of Poland, Monica Castano Agudelo of Colombia, Hiwot Mamo of Ethiopia and the host entry, Parapadsorn Disdamrong.
One of the ladies in this quintet can take it all the way. I’d like to add, though, that Miss Thailand could only go for 1st Runner-Up as her highest possible placement since Nawat Itsaragrisil might not give his thumbs-up to the host delegate winning the title too soon. That leaves the four others as possible winners.
Bottomline, I am seeing either Russia or Colombia being Janelee Chaparro’s successor. 🙂
