Miss International 2015 Review: Class of 2015

Miss International 2015 will be crowned on Thursday, November 5th in Tokyo, Japan. This year 70 delegates are battling it out for the crown. In the last few years, I have started following this pageant, but this year I have to admit that I found it extremely hard to follow the events in Tokyo, Yes, I have been browsing through the photos and I have mixed feelings about the group. I can't totally blame my lack of interest on just a busy work schedule... I guess it's also the fact that I anticipate another boring and outdated pageant on Thursday. Maybe it's also because I know that of all the pageants, this one is the hardest one for me... I usually get it totally wrong, because I have no idea what the judges are looking for. With quite a bit of uncertainty and just relying on my natural instincts, I have divided the contestants into 7 categories. Let's start with:


Representing your country at an international pageant is always an honor. One thing about Miss International is that it is an amazing cultural experience and the organizers do an exceptional job when it comes to showcasing the very best that Japanese culture has to offer. The girls should always see this is an experience and an adventure that they can feel proud of. Only one can win the crown, but all of them have shared the experience. Sadly, for most of them, the night and their dreams of becoming the next Miss International will end when the semi-finalists are announced. Below is my list of contestants who I feel are the ones most likely to miss the cut. There can be several reasons for this. They might have gotten lost in the crowd, or they were outshone by some others, or they might not be the type of beauties who are generally favored by the Japanese judges. That does not make them any less worthy though and they should all feel proud of what they have accomplished.

  1. Alas, Kenya or Zambia, who I think are gorgeous, will not get anywhere. There was a black winner last year, so they will not have one 2 years running, also Black Africans have a very poor record in this pageant.
