The hype of Miss Universe 2016 continues as the pageant day draws nearer. With fans flying to Manila to witness the event, avid fans worldwide speculate via online polls who will win this year. Pia Wurtzbach of the Philippines will crown her successor at the end of the event. This will be the second time that the pageant will skip the entire year, following the 2014 pageant which was held in January 2015.
Moreover, the TV personality Steve Harvey will once again host the event despite last year’s blunders. Everyone is sure to keep their eyes peeled in hopes he doesn’t make a mistake again. With a few days left before the event, check out the latest predictions who could take home the crown.
Miss Universe 2016: Top 5 Predictions
With online polls asking who will be crowned Miss Universe this year, fans root for Miss Colombia to win this year. According to a report from The Pageant Planet, Colombia’s Andrea Tovar is leading the polls. Andrea exudes the true latina beauty, much like how Jennifer Lopez never fails to stun viewers. In fact, the same outlet even refers to Andrea as a “goddess” in a sense that she also withstood being an active titleholder for an extended period of time. She almost took home the crown last year much to the cringe-worthy mistake of Steve Harvey, so she will surely be back with a vengeance this time around.
Next on the list is Miss Brazil Raissa Santana. She simply has the wow factor, as seen in her photos online. Not to mention, she also bears a few extra inches of her height compared to her other contestants. She is very adaptive despite whatever style she needs to don and possesses a very dynamic personality.
The third strongest contender would be Miss Thailand Chalita Suansane. If you want to know what fierce looks like, direct your attention to her. She is the perfect example of class and beauty, even when the paparazzi catches her off guard.
The Philippines’ Maxine Medina also has a strong chance of bagging this year’s crown. Home field advantage doesn’t mean having high scores mainly because the pageant is being hosted in home soil. But, the crowd cheering and rooting for you will definitely boost your morale. Maxine’s confidence is best noticed with her subtle yet gorgeous presence. Much like Pia Wurtzbach who won last year.
Last but not the least, Miss Barbados Shannon Harris has also won the attention of many despite keeping a low profile. While she looked a bit “over-styled” during her national pageant, this year it is her natural beauty that will earn her the event’s top spots.
