Early Frontrunners and Underdogs of the 69th Miss Universe Pageant

The season to be excited about the Miss Universe pageant has begun! Based on what we have been seeing online there are at least 15 ladies to be on the look out in the coming  69th edition of the Miss Universe pageant.

Despite the lack of reliable information on the dates of the MU pageant, we cannot help but sense the feeling that an official announcement may be made by the end of December. But that shouldn’t be of our concern for the moment because the Miss Universe fever seems to have started. And we have listed the ladies that every pageant fan should watch out for!

Blogger’s note: the names are listed in random order and shouldn’t be mistaken for a ranked list.

Get to Know Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar

After a disastrous 2016, I am quite glad that a very lovely and deserving Manushi Chhillar was crowned Miss World this year. I thought it was a disservice that I wasn’t able to follow her journey due to conflicts with other pageants last November. Hence, for today’s post, I will be featuring the gorgeous winner from India.

Manushi is the 6th Indian to win the Miss World title and the first to win after a 16 year wait since Priyanka Chopra’s win in 2000. The 5’9″ bedimpled beauty is 20 years old and hails from a family of doctors. Born in May 14, 1997 in Rohtak, Haryana, India, Manushi is trained classical Indian dancer and a model. Manushi is also a medical student who postponed her studies to compete in Femina Miss India this year. She credits the first Indian Miss World, Reita Faria, as her idol for becoming a medical doctor after her reign.

The brown-eyed beauty is one of the 5 girls who tied for the Beauty with a Purpose challenge victory. She also won the head to head challenge in her group as well as placing in the Top Model, People’s Choice, and Multimedia competitions (which was a far cry form her predecessor).
While Manushi was crowned with the MW title, Miss Mexico Andrea Meza was named the first princess and England’s Stephanie Hill settled on the third place.

Miss World 2017 Sashes&Scripts 1st Leaderboard

The international pageant season is almost upon us. So before it begins, we list down the first Miss World Leaderboard for Sashes&Scripts…

  1. Polina Popova, Russia
  2. Clarissa Bowers, USA
  3. Magdalena Bieńkowska, Poland
  4. Manushi Chhillar, India
  5. Gabrielle Vilela, Brazil
  6. Cynthia Menard,  Canada
  7. Aurore Kichenin, France
  8. Laura Lehmann, Philippines
  9. Achintya Nielsen, Indonesia
  10. Andrea Meza,  Mexico
  11. Polina Tkach, Ukraine
  12. Esma Voloder, Australia
  13. Magline Jeruto,  Kenya
  14. Christine Arual Longar,  South Sudan
  15. Anouk Eman,  Aruba

    With a Russian super-beauty who can speak Mandarin, who is also a Chinese literature degree holder, it is almost a guarantee that Polina Popova is the runaway winner. It also helps that Russia and China are political allies. All of these factors would help Polina in her bid for the crown. Coming up second is another blond beauty Clarissa Bowers from the USA. Aside from her good looks and brains, she is also helped by the “New Franchise-Holder Syndrome“, a fan theory that new NDs of the MW franchise would place quite high in the pageant. Completing the “Battle of the Blondes” trio is the ash-blonde looker from Poland, Magdalena Bieńkowska. No stranger to pageants this beauty represented her country previously in Miss International 2016. Completing the 5 circle of finalists are two countries who have consistently done well in MW: India and Brazil. Manushi Chhillar’s beauty is a mix of Amal Clooney and Leighton Meester. Brazil’s Gabrielle Vilela on the other hand has a Madeleine Stowe vibe on her, very classic face…
