Miss World 2012 Review: Korea - Martinique

The 62nd Miss World will be crowned this Saturday, August 18th, at the Dongsheng Fitness Stadium Center in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China. 116 amazing young ladies are competing to become the next Miss World. Ordos welcomed the girls with open arms and it seems like they are going all out to show the world what they can done. The stage is looking amazing and the opening ceremony looked fantastic with all the traditional dancers and the huge LED screens. I hope we will be treated with a grand and exciting final night. The contest was very long again... four weeks! I am sure the girls must be exhausted by now but I also know it has been a fantastic experience for them. It was hard to follow the contest at times as the girls rarely wear their sashes. To know who's who, you have to be able to either recognize them or be able to decipher what's written on those small name tags. The groups is so strong this year, though, that it is almost impossible to say who will be the next Miss World. There are so many gorgeous and deserving young ladies and I wish them all good luck and the very best in life!!!

***** In the running for a spot in the top 7
**** Potential top 15 semi-finalist
*** Could be in the top 30
** Will possibly miss the cut
* Very likely to miss the cut

Here's what I think:

KOREA: Sung Min Kim **
I really like this girl and I think she is absolutely adorable. However, I also need to take in consideration that she has not gotten as much attention as her predecessor. She might finish very close to the top 30 but probably just outside it.

LATVIA: Anastasija Skibunova *
Anastasija had some very unique outfits and she definitely has her one sense of style. That made her stand out. She did well in Talent and Beach Beauty but I don’t think she will place.

LEBANON: Sonia-Lynn Gabriel *
I saw quite a few photos of her when the competition started but as the weeks went on I started seeing less and less of her. She kind of faded away.

LITHUANIA: Rasa Verenuite **
Rasa is a natural beauty and at times I’ve had her in or very close to my top 30. I think she has represent her country very well and she can feel proud of herself for doing so.

MACAU CHINA: Winni Sin **
I guess we all owe a HUGE thank you to Miss Macau. So many of the photographs we wanted to see came from her. She updated her page regularly… so regularly, that at times, it felt like we were there. Some people even joked that she must be the official photographer of the pageant. I love it when a girl makes the most of the experience and I really hope Winni does well in the Multimedia Award of the competition.

MACEDONIA FYRO: Aneta Stojkoska *
I honestly try to be nice and positive most of the time and sometimes I find it hard to say anything at all. The thing is that for the most part of the competition I was wondering if Miss Macedonia made it and struggling to find photos of her. I think there are just too many delegates at Miss World.

MALAWI: Susan Mtegha *
Oh bless her heart! I have so much respect for the delegates from Malawi. I know to just be at Miss World they also need to struggle to find sponsorship and their participation is usually uncertain until the very last moment. So, I am really happy that she made it and I hope she had an unforgettable time.

MALAYSIA: Yvonne Lee **
Yvonne Lee is actually quite a nice surprise. She is very polished and she actually held her own in a tough region. I am impressed with the way she presented herself. She definitely did her country proud.

MALTA: Daniela Darmanin *
Daniela was my favorite for the Miss Malta title. At this contest, she did not stand out much… literally, at 1.64m she is just too short and she just kind of faded away.

MARTINIQUE: Andy Govindin *
She seems like a really nice girl and it looks like they had lots of fun. I enjoyed their “Call Me Maybe” video. Those are the good times that will stay with them forever. Future delegates should follow their example and just really make the most of the experience.
