• Pageant-related website, Missosology, picked the Top 10 candidates as possible Miss Universe winner
• The Philippines’ Maxine Medina is 4th in the list
• Miss Nicaragua is Missosology’s top pick to win the Miss U crown
Missosology, a leading pageant-related website that covers Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International, Miss Earth and Miss Supranational and many other local and global pageants, recently came up with a list of 10 candidates who are likely to win the Miss Universe crown.
The Philippines’ candidate Maxine Medina, who is hoping to achieve a back-to-back win for the country, ranked 4th in Missosology’s Top 10 list.
“Maxine Medina of the Philippines slid a little bit into fourth place, but still hanging strong in the Top 5. The controversy surrounding her interview skills, and whether or not she should use an interpreter during the final night are overshadowing some of the better attributes that this young model can actually offer. Maxine will surely score high in the swimsuit and evening gown competitions, and just as she said, Filipino fans just have to “believe in her” especially during the important interview round,” the pageant website wrote.
Missosology’s top pick is Miss Nicaragua, Marina Jacoby.
“She is now the top favorite to win the crown, and what a giant leap by this 21-year-old model and commercial actress after she was only pegged at 20th spot in our last hot picks,” it said.
Here’s the rest of the list:
2nd – Miss Thailand, Chalita Suansane
3rd – Miss Venezuela, Mariam Habach
5th – Miss Sierra Leone, Hawa Kamara
6th – Miss Brazil, Raissa Santa
7th – Miss Great Britain, Jamie-Lee Faulkner
8th – Miss Belgium, Stephanie Geldof
9th – Miss Barbados, Shannon Harris
10th – Miss Mexico, Kristal Silva
