In a just a few momente, 79 stunning ladies will be sent into disappointment as the most deserving lady will walk away as Miss Earth 2009. Everyone has gotten their say, now, let me say mine. I want to apologize in advance if I will hurt others feeling in any way because of my comments.
In exact order, here are my babes (oops!), I mean, MY BETS.
SPAIN| Alejandra Echevarria
Spain will be represented by another goddess this year. A natural beauty with a perfect body with slightly shaped curves. Yummy! If this Iberian princess happens to reach Top 8, she only need to pull a great answer to secure the crown.
VENEZUELA| Jessica Barboza
I am pretty sure that she will have her place on the finals. She is such an eye-catching, resplendent figure of womanly delight. A far cry from Miss Venezuela - Universe 2009. OOPS! I shouldn't said that.
CUBA| Jamilette Gaxiola
OMG! I'm not a pageant expert but I know beautiful when I see one. She's definitely the face of Miss Earth 2009. She is such a stunner. She was a diamond that needed no polishing. I noticed that she is so comfortable with her beauty that it actually came through in all her candid photos. I hope this beauty will not be wasted. It's time to put Cuba in the beauty map.
PHILIPPINES| Sandra Seifert
Well, I'm one of those who are not in favor of having a back-to-back victory for the Philippines this year because it is soooo Miss Universe 2009. But, Sandra has an undeniably great personality that Miss Earth is looking for. She may not be the most beautiful delegate (facially speaking) but she has this extraordinary aura that makes her to stand out in a sea of equally stunning ladies.
USA| Amy Diaz
She is undeniably gorgeous. She is a gem of the west who will easily pick up one of the top 8 slots.
THAILAND| Rujinan Phansreetum
She is one of those heavenly beauties with a pre-possessing smile. She is another Asian to watch out for tonight. Remember that Thailand is doing a great job in Miss Earth.
CZECH REPUBLIC| Teresa Budkova
Tereza proved that Europe is rich with beauty this year. She bagged the Miss Photogenic award --- the first from Europe. Will she follow the footsteps of Priscilla Meirelles and Karla Henry who won the Miss Photogenic award and later crowned Miss Earth? POSSIBLE. Take note that she's from another Miss Earth powerhouse.
LATVIA| Diana Kubasova
I'm not a fan of her beauty but who cares? She's a press favorite, anyway.
COLOMBIA| Alejandra Castillo
Some says she looks old but for me, her beauty is exceptional. Leaving this girl out of the semifinals is a crime of the catwalk.
PARAGUAY| Gabriela Rejala
I am impressed by her sizzling body (hot! hot! hot!) and her strikingly beautiful face. There is something on her that cries a Top 4 material.
BRAZIL| Larissa Ramos
Larissa is pretty and has a sweet aura. I won't be surprised at all if she'll make it. I think she's also ready for the crown.
POLAND| Isabela Wilczek
Poland has been doing good in Miss Earth and I presume that 2009 is not an exception. I just hope that she will not be robbed in this year's edition.
JAMAICA| Jennae Dawn Jackson
Jennae had the exotic looks, the perfect caramel complexion and a body to die for. In other words, an exquisite force ready to compete with the rest.
MEXICO| Natalia Quinonez
I'm quite fascinated with her beauty. I don't know but it spells Miss Earth winner for me. She has the same grace and beauty typical of most Miss Mexico.
KOREA| Park Ye-Ju
First Miss Earth from Korea? Why not? She is cute as a button. I expect her to be one of the three Asians in this year's Top 16.
TURKS AND CAICOS| Alison Capron
This country is on the right track when they send another black stunner to grace this year's edition. I know comes final night she will surprise us in a nice way.
So, there it is. My Miss Earth 2009 bets. Puh-leez, don't give me those "why is she not there?" or "why is she there?" blah blah. Remember this is MY list.
