Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela: The Rivalry Continues

In the Spanish-speaking world only Colombia, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela has a rivalry so intense none can match it in beauty pageants. To say that they are the biggest consumers of pageantry is a mere understatement.

Colombia’s bet to this year’s pageant has huge shoes to fill in. Laura Gonzalez Ospina is coming from the heels of three consecutive top 3 placements that started with Paulina Vega in 2014. The pressure is on for this 22 year old multiligual who is also an actress/ model in her country. The 5’10” brown-eyed brunette hopes to continue the winning streak of her country in MU.

Mexico has Demisse Franco hailing from Sinaloa state. Could this 18 year old beauty become the third Miss Universe from her country? She possibly can. She stands 5’9″ with dark brown hair and brown eyes. Should she make it as semi-finalist this year, it would be the 4th consecutive placements at MU for Mexico.

Venezuela’s Keysi Sayago has something to prove this year. After a shocking non-placement of Venezuela’s rep in MU last year, Keysi is out for vengeance. Statuesque at 5’11” this brunette beauty is out to put back her country at the semis. She is one of the few women of color (only the third in fact) from her country to ever the Miss Venezuela title.

With Puerto Rico still out to select their queen, it can be said that Latin-America has to pull out all stops in the way. Who will stand tall among these countries later in Miss Universe?
