WHO WILL GIVE US OUR 5TH CROWN?

It has been 20 years since our last Miss Universe was crowned – it was Porntip from Thailand in 1988.

Our very first Miss Universe crown was in 1965 won by Apasra, also from Thailand.

Southeast Asia has a total of 4 Miss Universes. Between Apasra and Porntip, there were Gloria in 1969 and Margarita in 1973 – both from the Philippines. (what lovely names!)

Yes, there were finalists and runners-up in between butc’mon sweetie, this is not a contest of 2nd bests, is it?

Anyways…although another Oriental Miss Universe as a successor this year would be almost a miracle, I can’t help to wonder...

Who will give us our 5th MU crown?...



You want a fearless prediction? –


None of ‘em.

Two of ‘em would place as a semi-finalist but only one
would go on to be a finalist. But that’s it.

No crown for us this year.

But I wish ‘em all the best of luck. They all need it.

Wow. Cool reasearch. Yeah, Thailand gave us the first and the last one. I hope other villages (as Pisanu refers our countries) could contribute another crown.

But I would beg to disagree...miracles do happen. And I think Indonesia has a chance. Does she speak good English?

Just so she'll be different from Ryo Mori.

Cheers to this post.

I'm also betting on Indonesia. Whether or not she speaks good English, it doesn't matter, for as long as you have a witty translator LOL!!!
