My first #Top10 Picks for Miss Universe 2018:
As of December 9, 2018, allow me to share with you normannorman.com’s ten (10) running favorites for #MissUniverse2018. In this order:
1. Catriona Gray #Philippines
2. Kiara Liz Ortega #PuertoRico
3. Marta Magdalena Stepien #Canada
4. Tamaryn Green #SouthAfrica
5. Francesca Hung #Australia
6. Trejsi Sejdini #Albania
7. Sarah Rose Summers #USA
8. Sophida Kanchanarin #Thailand
9. Sthefany Gutierrez #Venezuela
10. Yuumi Kato #Japan
For now, these ten ladies are the ones I am seeing as strong contenders in the finals. The composition can still change within the coming days. But the first three of the upper tier are likely to remain unchanged.
In addition, our Queen Cat is still among the Top 3 of the Thais along with Puerto Rico and – not so surprisingly – Albania (who is always being talked about in all their events). Even the TV networks give value to her, just like in the interview below with PPTV36 which is an events channel where sporting and other world events are featured. She has been the only one given a spot so far in this network. I was told by a Thai ad agency contact that she is highly valued by the advertisers and has been getting a majority of the interviews.
Then watch this next video where the subject was as simple as Pad Thai.

A select group of Miss Universe 2018 Candidates – including host delegate Miss Thailand Ning Sophida Kanchanarin, Miss Philippines Catriona Gray, Miss South Africa Tamaryn Green and Miss USA Sarah Rose Summers – visited WuttisakBeauty where they “bonded” with snails – a main ingredient in the Thai company’s beauty products.

Day 2 is Fitting Day at Miss Universe 2018. Fitting for Sherri Hill, the swimwear, the Thai night outfit etc. So I decided to do some Cat-spotting for now.

Tamaryn Green is the newly-crowned Miss South Africa 2018, and she is looking to be like another tough opponent for our Catriona Gray come Miss Universe 2018. Some people are even saying that she has that similar vibe to our Queen.
What do you think, dear readers?
