Colombia: The Winning-est MU Country in the Past 3 Years!

If there is one country that is currently on the top of the Miss Universe list, that would be Colombia. In the past three years, they have won Miss Universe, 1st runner up and 2nd runner up. Will Laura González Ospina continue that winning streak?

The multilingual brunette is just a bit shy of 5’10”. She is currently one of the top favorites for the title of Miss Universe among pageant fans and observers. This 22 year old actress-model was born in Cali, Colombia but grew up in Cartagena. She comes after the footsteps of Miss Universe 2014 Paulina Vega, 2015 MU 1st runner up Ariadna Gutierrez and 2016 MU 2nd runner up Andrea Tovar. The pressure is on her to keep Colombia to be in the top 3 of the pageant. 

DO you think she can keep Colombia’s top three streak in Miss Universe this year?


Laura González Ospina is Señorita Colombia 2017!

A new Señorita Colombia has been crowned and she is Laura Gonzalez Ospina! She is Colombia’s representative in the Miss Universe 2017 to happen later this year.

Laura is turning 22 years old this year and stands at 5’9 3/4″. She is the second lady representing Cartagena to ever win the national title. The brunette is also multilingual as she can speak fluent English, French and Spanish. She bested 22 other girls in the pageant while maintaining the lead since the beginning of the competition, earning topmarks in both swimsuit and evening gown.

Coming at second is Antioquia’s Vanessa Pulgarín who will be competing in Japan later for Miss International. Vanessa, whose looks is a mixture of Miss Universe Gabriela Isler and Patricia Yurena Rodriguez, is this blogger’s personal favorite for the title. She stands statuesque at 5’10” and is a social communications major at the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana. She is 24 years old.

Coincidentally all five of the Señorita Colombia top 5 are on my list of faves to win! Santander’s Yenifer Hernández was named 1st runner up, 2nd runner up honors went to Vanessa Domínguez of Bogota and 3rd runner up was María Fernanda Betancur of Magdalena.

My Favorites for Señorita Colombia 2016-2017

The Señorita Colombia pageant was supposed to be held during the last quarter of last year however due to a recent memo from IMG|WME, the parent org of Miss Universe, the pageant has to be moved to 2017. According to the new directing from the MUOrg, no concurrent queens should reign simultaneously, hence this year Señorita Colombia is crowning their bet for the Miss Universe and Miss International bets.

Here are my favorites for the title to be vacated by Andrea Tovar, who was 3rd overall in the 65th Miss Universe pageant held in Manila.
1. Antioquia, Vanessa Pulgarin Monsalve
2. Cesar, Anabella Castro Sierra
3. Atlantico, Martha Martínez Insignares
4. Cartagena DTYC, Laura González Ospina
5. Santander, Yenniffer Hernández Jaimes 
6. Magdalena, María Fernanda Betancur Moreno
7. Cauca, Mayra Vitoviz Medina
8. Nariño, Camila Aguirre Jaramillo
9. Bogotá D.C., Vanessa Dominguez Field
10. Meta, Geraldine Naranjo Beltrán

65th Miss Universe Spotlight and Assessment: Colombia

Name: Andrea Tovar
Age: 23 years old
Height: 5’11”
Rating: Crown Contender
There is a reason for the other candidates to fear this lady from Colombia. Andrea is a major threat and to deny that fact is just being blind. Do I see her in the top 3? Absolutely! All she needs to do is to work her gameplan properly and not to throw attitude like the one she did in a media interview or the recent video of her throwing shade on the food and snacks. She needs to learn how to keep it cool and composed. Andrea is an improvement over her predecessor and it would be a waste if she does not learn how to control her public image.

Miss Universe profile bio:
Full of creativity, Andrea Tovar, graduated college with an Industrial Design and Photo Production degree. Tovar is described as beautiful, funny and a risk taker by some of her friends. On top of being a great friend, she also enjoys being an active volleyball player. Her confidence allows her to be goofy and she isn’t afraid to randomly get up and start dancing. If crowned Miss Universe, Tovar wants her generation to be properly educated on the environment. One of her dreams is to create an innovative foundation that uses raw materials from the Pacific region to transform Colombian products.
