Miss International 2014 Review: Georgia - India

The 54th Miss International will be crowned on Tuesday, November 11 in Tokyo, Japan. 73 delegates are vying to become Miss International 2014. The winner will succeed Bea Santiago from the Philippines. For the last 2 weeks, the delegates took part in several activities organized by the Miss International Organization. This year there are several standouts but predicting who will win this pageant is almost impossible. Interestingly enough, the organizers decided that this year there will only be a top 10, not a top 15 like in previous years. The top 10 will be cut to 5 and one of them will be the new Miss International.

After keeping an eye on the girls for the past few weeks, here are my thoughts:

****** POSSIBLE WINNER
***** TOP 5 MATERIAL BUT WILL PROBABLY NOT WIN
**** VERY LIKELY TO PLACE IN THE TOP 10
*** POSSIBLE SURPRISE INCLUSION IN THE TOP 10
** UNLIKELY TO PLACE
* HIGHLY UNLIKELY TO PLACE
Georgia: Inga Tsaturiani *

I think Inga's look is too out there for the Japanese judges. I don't expect her to place this year.

Germany: Katharina Rodin **

I do think Katharina is quite pretty. Her classical understated beauty is noticeable but this year there are other contender who are stronger. With better training, it could have been different though.

Gibraltar: Kristy Torres *

Gibraltar placed last year but this year I don't expect them to do it again. The competition is just too strong.

Guatemala: Claudia Herrera **

Here's another girl who might have had a shot in a less competitive year. Even though she is quite pretty, there are just other competitors that I like more.

Guyana: Ruqayyah Boyer ****

Ruquyyah is now a pageant veteran after having competed in both Miss Universe and Miss World. She was a favorite in both those pageants but did not make it in the end. Is her luck about to change?! She has what it takes. She is gorgeous, elegant, well-spoken, and has an amazing personality. Here's hoping she will get the placement she deserves.

Haiti: Christie Desir *

Miss Haiti does have an interesting look but I don't believe it's the kind of look that works at Miss International.

Honduras: Monica Brocato ***

If it's purely based on facial beauty, Monica could get a surprise placement. But there are only 10 spots available this year, so it will be a bit of an uphill battle for her.

Hong Kong: Katherine Ho *

The Asian beauties are quite strong this year. There are about 5 or 6 of them that could place. I don't think Katherine is one of the frontrunners in her region.

Hungary: Karman Dalma ***

I expected a bit more from Karman to be honest. She is a beautiful girl but she wasn't quite the standout I expected her to be. They made it all the way to the top 5 last year, but this year I think they might be left clapping.

India: Jhataleka Malhotra ******

Jhataleka has really grown on me. Her ethereal beauty and timeless elegance is impossible to ignore. She has been a standout and I really hope that she does not get ignored. India could have their very first Miss International but will the Japanese judges appreciate her beauty?
