Since it’s already the start of November and the contenders should start pouring in the country around these days, I decided to post a video showing the beautiful delegates who comprise my Pre-Arrival Favorites for Miss Earth 2012. Do keep in mind that this selection is purely based on online sources. At any rate, will the same ladies remain on top of my scoresheet come Finals Night on November 24? It all depends on how they will present themselves all throughout their stay in Manila. So many things can happen between now and then, so the list is very likely to still have some changes.
Please play the video below:
Top tier (from top left, clockwise: Natalia Pereverzeva of Russia, Prachi Mishra of India, Osmariel Villalobos of Venezuela, Camila Brant of Brazil, Braxis Alvarez of Nicaragua, Ilknur Melis Durasi of Turkey, Tereza Fajksova of Czech Republic and Fabiana Granados of Costa Rica.)
2nd tier (from top left, clockwise: Tamerin Jardine of South Africa, Estefania Realpe of Ecuador, Darli Pacheco of Puerto Rico, Svetlana Raschupkina of Kazakhstan, Brooke Maria Sherman of Bahamas, Esther Cheyanne Foss of Fiji, Jenna Seymour of Australia and Warrathaya Wongchayaporn of Thailand.)
No need to make explanations at this point. I just want to compare notes with you, dear readers, on which girls excite you so far. 😉
P.S. The 30-minute video above could no longer accommodate my 15th and 16th ladies (Esther Foss of Fiji and Brooke Sherman of Bahamas) due to account limitations. So I decided to post their photo grids. 🙂
Miss Earth Kazakhstan 2012 Svetlana Raschshupkina
A 20 year-old native of Almaty, Svetlana Raschshupkina is Manila-bound for Miss Earth 2012. Her country, Kazakhstan, has never placed in the Top 4 of the pageant except during the premiere edition way back in 2001 when Margarita Kravtsova was crowned Miss Water to Catharina Svensson’s Miss Earth.
Will beautiful Svetlana turn the tide and be able to reach far this time around? The opposition contains some of the finest candidates in any edition so far, but it still is a contest so everyone should ideally start on equal footing before the best of the lot starts nosing out the weaker wannabes. Let’s wait and see… 😉
