Just a couple of hours back, Miss Universe Australia 2011 was crowned in a colorful culmination at the Sofitel Melbourne and the lucky lady who outlasted the 26 other gorgeous candidates is Scherri Lee Biggs representing Perth. The 20 year-old fashion model and communications student – a strong favorite to win going into the national finals – will now represent the largest continent in the world in the biggest beauty pageant – Miss Universe 2011 – to take place in Sao Paulo, Brazil this September. Her court includes Tegan Martin (1st Runner-Up) and Samantha Downie (2nd Runner-Up).
Congratulations, Scherri Lee! I can see another strong performer in her after last year’s Jesinta Campbell placed 3rd. 🙂
Who will win the crown currently being held by Jesinta Campbell (in photo above, right) who placed 2nd Runner-Up in Miss Universe 2010?
The 2011 Contenders:
If you ask me, I’m having a hard time selecting my favorites because each candidate exudes the kind of beauty (with nice names as well) that will do well in the Miss Universe Pageant. In fact, I can take 10 and field them in Brazil (wearing different sashes) and more than half will definitely shine and get a good shot in entering the Top 16.
At any rate, I’m clicking the ‘like’ button on Amy Sutton (very Jesinta Campbell-like vibe), Alycia Altieri, Scherri-Lee Biggs, Melody Le, Natasha Raleigh and Samara Tugwell. From the remaining ladies, there are still a lot of standouts such as Ashlea Ingham, Rebecca Ronald, Ivana Vrbenski, Samantha Downie and Sally Arnott. Whew! It’s hard to single out a winner so I can only wish each one of them the best of luck this coming Thursday, July 7. I’m certain the eventual titleholder will be another Donald Trump-pleaser in Sao Paolo, Brazil for Miss Universe 2011. 😉
