My Final Predictions for Miss Earth 2017! #MissEarth2017

This year’s Miss Earth heroines are probably in the top 3 of the strongest girls to ever compete in this pageant. It was so difficult to pinpoint up to this stage who’s actually the number one front runner in the bunch. Most of them are worthy to be proclaimed this year’s Miss Earth and her equally important elemental queens.

But decisions has to be made and I’ve only come up with the 8 beauties whom I think has the best chance of making it this Saturday, November 4 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Top 8-5
8. Vietnam – Le Thi Ha Thu
7. Russia – Lada Akimova
6. Philippines – Karen Ibasco
5. Thailand – Paweensuda Drouin


Miss Earth-Fire goes to Miss Puerto Rico – Karla Victoria Aponte

Her modelesque bearing and unassuming demeanor are two of the things that endeared her to pageant fans all over the world and she happens to be a very good speaker as well so I won’t be surprised if she actually end up usurping the winner come finals night. For now though, I’m placing her in the fourth spot as Miss Earth – Fire.

Miss Earth Water goes to Miss Colombia – Juliana Franco

Juliana’s statuesque beauty is something that no judges could ignore in this edition. She’s like the Miss Prim and Proper  of Miss Earth and her beauty alone could catapult her into the top. And yes, it’s crazy impressive that she’s super smart as well!

Miss Earth Air goes to Miss Venezuela – Ninoska Vasquez

Ninoska is probably my favorite this year because she’s a hardworking contestant. She came here to win and this girl won’t let her chance to grab the crown this Saturday slip away so easily. For now, I am placing this charming Venezuelan as my first runner-up or the Miss Earth Air.

My Miss Earth 2017 is none other than Miss Netherlands – Faith Landman

Her youthful appearance and striking eyes are definitely her biggest pull but when she opens her mouth, it’s evident that she knows what she’s talking about. She’s one of the perennial favorites this year and it wasn’t easy placing her in the top because all of my top 4 are deserving of the title IMHO but after some deliberation,Faith just shot to the top of my list!

Who do you think should win Miss Earth?

Miss Earth 2017 Miss Photogenic Winner is Miss Vietnam Lê Thị Hà Thu #MissEarth2017

Miss Vietnam Lê Thị Hà Thu along with Juliana Franco of Colombia and Venezuela’s Ninoska Vasquez are the top 3 online vote getters for the Miss Photogenic award this year at the on-going Miss Earth beauty pageant in Manila.

The three winners are amongst the favorite this year to win the title! Will they be able to capitalize on this win this coming Saturday for the grand coronation night?

Bellezas por una causa: Rostros con 20 días de maquillaje, expuestas al sol, varios productos en la piel, desmaquillantes, exposición al maltrato diario de la brochas y además un cambio de alimentación y agua que si o si afecta la apariencia de la piel, y saben que? TODAS SE VEÍAN NATURALMENTE BELLAS! Es increíble la diversidad de belleza que existe en nuestro planeta aun cuando todas poseemos los mismos órganos. Somos creaciones hechas con perfección a nuestra historia, diseñadas con la genética de nuestra herencia y nuestra cultura. Ha sido una prueba real donde se vieron mujeres reales, una muestra de que la verdadera belleza es la que tienes TU en tu cabeza al hablar de una persona. Porque la belleza es subjetiva, es expuesta a la crítica y muchas veces mal interpretada. CONCIENCIA es lo que me genera esta prueba. Conciencia de que cuando es tu seguridad la que posees tu interior, tu exterior la proyecta y es lo que se percibe. No existen las mujeres perfectas, existen las mujeres REALES. Sean libres de criticar, pero mujeres sean libres de sentirse bellas! 🌏 Beauties for a cause: Faces with 20 days of makeup, exposed to the sun, various products on the skin, make-up remover, exposure to daily mistreatment of the brushes and also a change of food and water that affects the appearance of the skin, and you know what? ALL WERE NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL! It is incredible the diversity of beauty that exists on our planet even though we all have the same organs. We are creations made with perfection to our history, designed with the genetics of our heritage and our culture. It has been a real test where real women were seen, an example of true beauty is what you have in your head when talking about a person. Because beauty is subjective, it is exposed to criticism and often misinterpreted. CONSCIENCE is what generates this test. Awareness that when it is your security that you own your inner, your exterior projects and is what is perceived. There are no perfect women, there are REAL women. Be free to criticize, but women are free to feel beautiful! @missearth @missearthcolombia #missearth #MissEarth2017 #colombia #philippines #beautiesforacause #bellezasporunacausa
