Miss Supranational 2016: Fearless forecast

All roads lead to Krynica Zdrój in Poland as the youngest of the Big5 pageants stages its much anticipated “Supra Show” tonight. With 71 candidates from across the globe, only one will be crowned Miss Supranational 2016.

Compared to previous years, this batch is relatively weak. With no clear front-runners this year, it’s going to be anyone’s ball game. And what happens with “weak” seasons, the powerhouse countries usually reign supreme.

After crowning the stunning Stephania Stegman last year, it would be a wise decision for Miss Supranational to crown another Latina. If they want to expand their market in South America, it would be best to crown Venezuela or Mexico.

The emerging pageant powerhouse continent of Asia sent strong ladies this year again and the likes of Philippines, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and India could very well represent the organization, too.

Meanwhile, Ukraine, Poland, and Hungary are the flag-bearers of Europe and could easily snatch the crown.

Thailand’s Patraporn Wang won the Miss Intercontinental title last December 4 in Madgeburg, Germany, while India’s Asha Baht was crowned Miss Supranational the following day in Warsaw, Poland. This marks the first time that the two countries won in their respective international pageants.

The Philippines’ representatives in both pageants didn’t go home empty-handed. Kris Tiffany Janson placed 2nd runner-up to Wang in Miss Intercontinental 2014. She was also named Miss Photogenic and Miss Intercontinental Asia and Oceania. Meanwhile, Yvethe Marie Santiago was the last girl to be called in the Top 20 of Miss Supranational 2014. She didn’t make it to the Top 10.

Intercontinental
The continental queens which composed the Miss Intercontinental 2014 Top 5 finalists were Argentina’s Nadina Vallina (South America), Cuba’s Jeslie Mergal (North America), South Africa’s Donique Leonard (Africa), Portugal’s Joana Martins (Europe) and Philippines’ Kris Tiffany Janson (Asia and Oceania). After a few minutes, it was announced that instead of a Top 5, there will be a Top 6 because Wang’s scores were tied with Miss Philippines.
