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?
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
Name: Andrea Tovar
Age: 23 years old
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.

Señorita Colombia, Andrea Tovar prior to leaving for Miss Universe in Manila has posted numerous pics of her performing her duties as the reigning queen. She has been seen visiting troops (Army, Navy, Police, etc…) in her native Colombia aside from going to impoverished communities for charity work.
Will she be a major contender in the 65th Miss Universe pageant? You bet she will.
