Miss Brazil Priscila Machado may not be the most welcoming host delegate, but it cannot be denied that she is in it to win it!
Miss Finland Pia Pakarinen is coming out from the cold Finnish weather to add more heat to Miss Universe 2011.
Miss Mexico Karin Ontiveros does not look bothered that the reigning Miss Universe titleholder is her compatriot Ximena. She is zeroing in on a back-to-back victory.
Miss Nicaragua Adriana Dom is not about to take the competition sitting down. She wants to stand out and become her country's first Miss Universe.
Roommates or not, Miss Philippines Shamcey Supsup (L) and Miss Korea Jung So-ra won't have difficulty communicating with each other since the latter speaks fluent American English.
Miss Costa Rica Johanna Solano may look shorter than her reported height of 5'9" in person, but she remains to have one of the sweetest faces in the pageant.
Miss Ireland Aoife (pronounce 'ee-fah') Hannon is bringing the luck of the Irish that her predecessor Rozzana Purcell had last year.
Miss Dominican Republic Dalia Fernandez plans to use those soulful eyes to wow Sao Paulo from Day 1.
Just wait for Miss Panama Sheldry Saez to unpack her luggages before turning the heat on. She is one of the forces to reckon with in the pageant.
Miss Trinidad & Tobago Gabrielle Walcott is one of the oldest delegates at 27. But don't let the number fool you into thinking that she will serve as big sister to everyone.
Getting into the carnival spirit, Miss Paraguay Alba Riquelme (L) and Miss USA Alyssa Campanella are. Who's fiercer?
Miss China Luo Zilin is fast becoming a favorite in Sao Paulo. Don't ask me why just yet. She's very tall and a master of the runway, though.
