Miss International 2015 Review: The Spoilers

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 I guess it's also the fact that I anticipate another boring and outdated pageant on Thursday.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 continue with: 

The Spoilers

In any pageant you get surprises. I guess that's what makes it fun to follow pageants. We get to be armchair judges and see if we really do have an "eye for beauty". Year after year, some favorites are left clapping while a spoiler or two, well, spoils the party for her. In this year's group of spoilers, we have a couple of seasoned pageant veterans and a few bubbly newcomers. Let's meet them: 

Canada: Kathryn Kohut

Hawaii: Brianna Acosta 

Korea: Ahreum Park 

Macau: Ana Choi

Netherlands: Rachel van der Meulen

New Zealand: Hayley Rose Coombe 

Poland: Ewa Mielnicka 

Turkey: Berfu Yildiz 

Ukraine: Nina Goryniuk 
Be afraid of Canada and Hawaii - both of them have loads of experienced. Canada was a top 5 finalist in Miss Grand last year and almost won Miss Universe Canada and Hawaii competed at Miss USA. Korea is a doll and I've been very impressed by her. Macau has won a lot of fans in Japan for her great attitude and radiance. Netherlands is a natural beauty who has been giving it her all through and always looked like she's having a great time. New Zealand was one of the major favorites, but lost her way a bit (bad styling). We still think she has the beauty to do well. Poland is stunning and I have always heavily favored Polish representatives at this pageant, but they rarely do well. Turkey could pull a nice surprise and Ukraine has been mentioned as a competitor to watch out for by some of the delegates themselves.
