Srinidhi Ramesh Shetty (24) was crowned Miss Supranational 2016 in Poland a few hours ago. The 1.72m beauty secured her country's second title at this pageant, the first time any country has more than 1 title at this 8 year old beauty contest.
Hot favorite, Miss Venezuela, Valeria Vespoli, came very close to winning her country's first crown by finishing as the runner-up and gorgeous Miss Suriname, Jaleesa Pigot, finished as the second runner-up. Miss Sri Lanka, Ornella Gunesekere was named the third runner-up, while Miss Hungary, Korinna Kocsis was announced as the fourth runner-up.
The top 10 were completed by the delegates from Belarus, Indonesia, Myanmar, Poland and the Slovak Republic. The delegates from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Mauritius, Mexico, the Netherlands, Panama, Paraguay, the Philippines, Romania, Russia, Rwanda, the Ukraine and Vietnam made their countries proud by placing in the top 25.
Miss Suriname was also named Miss Photogenic and Miss Vietnam was named Best in Evening Gown.
I like the new winner, but I don't love her. I would have been delighted if the crown had gone to Venezuela, Suriname or Hungary!
