Miss International 2012 Review: Mexico - Peru

The 52nd Miss International Pageant is currently being celebrated in Okinawa, Japan. 68 young ladies are competing for the crown this year. When it was announced that Okinawa would play host to Miss International 2012, I was very skeptical but the island has definitely put its best foot forward. The delegates have been attending a number of events and there has even been a parade or two. The thing about Miss International finals in Japan is that they are just usually so boring and the quality of the production is usually very low. I am not expecting too much but I'm hoping to be surprised. In terms o quality of the delegates, this is not of the strongest years in the history of Miss International. But there are enough stunners to make for a decent competition. I will now briefly state my opinions about each of the contestants. As always, I try to be nice and focus on the positive as best as I can.

This is how I will rate each girl:

****** POSSIBLE WINNER
***** TOP 5 MATERIAL BUT WILL PROBABLY NOT WIN
**** VERY LIKELY TO PLACE IN THE TOP 15
*** POSSIBLE SURPRISE INCLUSION IN THE TOP 15
** UNLIKELY TO PLACE

MEXICO: JESSICA GARCIA FORMENTI ****

This girl is quite under-rated. I think she is very naturally pretty without being too plastic. Glammed up she is really great too. She is also tall and she has a rocking body. A top 15 placement is on the cards for her.

MONGOLIA: DOLGION DELGERJAV ***

She is either on fire or really disappointing. I think she has the potential to do well but she can also very easily go unnoticed. It will all depend on the taste of the Japanese judges. I don't think she will emulate her predecessor's placement though.

MYANMAR: NANG KHIN ZAY YAR *

It is really nice to see this country back after such a long absence. She represented her country well. I don't think she's strong enough to place but it would be nice to seee her getting one f the special awards, like Miss Friendship.

NAMIBIA: PAULINA MALULU *

Namibia is another debut at Miss International this year. I hope they will compete regularly from now on. Their delegate represented her country well but it's highly unlikely that she will place.

NEPAL: SUBEKSHYA KHADKA *

Nepal rarely makes an impact at international pageants (that's why their Miss World delegate's exclusion is so heart-breaking) and in this case it's same old, same old. She's cute but not strong enough to place.

NEW ZEALAND: HANNAH CARSON ***

New Zealand's Hannah Carson has been getting a lot of attention and she could very well be a surprise inclusion in the top 15. People respond very well to her natural beauty. She is not perfect but it is her imperfections that make her even more appealing. I definitely think that she should not wear her hair up though. She looks much better with her hair down.

NICARAGUA: REYNA PEREZ *

She was not always consistent. Sometimes she looked great and other times I was underwhelmed. I think the pretty (but not spectacular) Central American ladies will cancel each other out and they will probably all go unplaced... unless the Ambassador of Honduras to Japan can work her magic and get one of the Central American beauties to place.

PANAMA: KAREN JORDAN BEITA *

This girl does know how to make an impact. When she is glammed up, she gets attention. She stands out in photos. But her features are a bit angular and she's nowhere near last year's girls. I don't think she'll place.

PARAGUAY: NICOLE HUBER *****

Nicole is a pageant pro. She almost placed at Miss World (she missed the cut by one spot) and she placed at Miss Earth. She is looking great here, as always, and she probably has the best body of the competition. I think she will definitely place but her features might not be what the Japanese would favor. She has the goods to go all the way to the top 5 though.

PERU: ROSSMARY PIZARRO *

I'm so underwhelmed by this girl. Peru has a lot of stunning beauties and, yes, she is pretty. The thing is just that it seemed like she never really made much of an effort. She should have stepped it up. She was largely unnoticed.
