Right from the start, the competition to find the successor of Maria Jose Lora in Myanmar for Miss Grand International 2018 has never been a mysterious hunt. The favorites have started stamping their class early on and not one of them appears to be letting up in the process – not now when the new titleholder will be crowned tonight at The One Entertainment Park in Yangon, Myanmar.
So without further ado, here are my Top 10 Predictions to form part of the all-important cut before the magic circle of 5. In this order now:
The way I see it, the top spot is a fight between Meenakshi of India and Eva of the Philippines. I could easily add Namoey Chanaphan of Thailand to make it a three-cornered fight. I remember owner Nawatt Itsaragrisil saying that he will not crown a Thai winner yet until after at least five editions of the pageant have passed. This is the 6th so there is already a good possibility of seeing a Thai take it all the way to the top.
The likes of Billianis of Venezuela and Clara of Paraguay sneaking in for the crown is not far-fetched. But the troika of India, Philippines and Thailand is way too strong in my opinion. I can only see one of the three becoming the big winner at The One Entertainment Park in Yangon.
End of story.
Who are your choices, dear readers?
When Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2018 Eva Psychee Patalinjug gets her proper sendoff by late September, she will set herself up to embrace the culture and heritage of the Golden Land of Myanmar where Miss Grand International 2018 will be held at The One Entertainment Park in Yangon on October 25.
The One Entertainment Park is a huge events venue in the capital of Myanmar where big concerts and festivals are usually conducted. And this is where more than eighty (80) delegates from all over the world will converge to select the successor of Maria Jose Lora of Peru.
Eva is more than ready to face the challenge of winning the country’s very first Miss Grand International crown and she is making sure that all bases are covered for her mission. It certainly won’t be a walk in the park. But if she sticks to her training and preparations for the international competition, she will come home a glorious victor by the time she returns to the Philippines after the finals.
By the way, Cary Santiago will do her National Costume, with Philipp Tampus providing the Evening Gown.
