The Judges in the Preliminaries with Paula Shugart (foreground) and Jeannie Mai (2nd from right)
Hours from now, the Preliminary Competition of the 63rd Miss Universe Pageant in Doral Miami will commence with the eighty-eight (88) official delegates vying for the Top Fifteen (15) spots that will make the first cut on Sunday night’s (Monday morning in Manila
) finals at the FIU Arena.
I decided to share with you the candidates who I feel will deliver the goods to the judges in the swimsuit and evening gown rounds. It is possible that all or most of them will meet everyone’s expectations, and surprise performers will suddenly zoom up just as a few might also underwhelm.
Above are the fifteen (15) ladies I expect to excel in the Preliminaries for the 63rd Miss Universe Pageant. I included five (5) additional ladies as alternates just to make it a Top 20.
Left to right: Spain, Philippines and Colombia, the most anticipated ladies to deliver in the Prelims

Here’s another candidate from the African continent. Miss Gabon in the 63rd Miss Universe Pageant in Doral Miami goes by the name Maggaly Nguema and she looks so darn sweet and pretty everytime she flashes her winsome smile.
But when asked to turn more serious-looking for the camera, she can quickly shift the mood to channel her inner diva and show points of versatility without losing grasp of her true colors.
Will Miss Gabon be a sleeper in the competition and take on a Leila Lopes trail towards the finals? 😉
