Andrea Meza of Mexico is the 69th Miss Universe. She outlasted 73 other candidates for the crown – the 3rd victory of her country in the competition.
Her court includes:
1st RU Julia Gama of Brazil
2nd RU Janick Maceta of Peru
3rd RU Adline Castelino of India
4th RU Kimberly Jimenez of the Dominican Republic
The other ladies in the Top 10 are Thailand, Puerto Rico, Australia, Costa Rica and Jamaica.
Miss Philippines Rabiya Mateo made it to the Top 21.
The 69th Miss Universe – hosted by Mario Lopez and Olivia Culpo – was broadcasted live from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
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?

My #2 Pick for Miss Mundo Brasil 2014 won. Julia Gama (right) is shown above with her predecessor Sancler Frantz.
My #2 pick for the Miss Mundo Brasil 2014 crown won in Santa Catarina last night and will effectively represent the South American country in London for Miss World 2014. Julia Gama of Rio Grande do Sul was selected winner over 40 other candidates and succeeded Sancler Frantz who placed in the Top 5 of Miss World 2013 aside from being named Miss World Americas.
Will Julia perform better than her predecessor who was a solid favorite in Bali from the time she arrived till the finals day itself?
Let’s see what she is capable of achieving come December. 😉
Who among the forty-one (41) aspirants will succeed Miss World 2013 Top 5 Finalist Sancler Frantz?
