The challenge events, formerly known as Fast Track, are key components of Miss World judging system. While they are not the sole factor in determining the result, the events will give quite an impact as the winner and finalists from each event will be given extra points that will help them to leap and jump into a better position on the scoreboard. After the lucky shortlist for 4 challenge events this year revealed, we are trying to predict who will likely come up triumphant in each event. And here they are our prediction for Miss World 2012 Challenge Event winners!
Winner prediction : South Sudan
Miss South Sudan is a second coming of Alex Wek. Hailing from the same country as the famous supermodel, she also shares a lot of feature that would make her a great model on the catwalk, including her statuesque height, proportional body shape, exotic face, and beautiful ebony skin. In the real world of fashion, black African models have experienced success at even international stage, and we think it is also about time for Miss World to a fierce ebony girl like Miss South Sudan as their Top Model.
Close calls : Mexico, Spain, China
Winner prediction : Northern Ireland
It is a tough call to decide which one between her and Miss Sweden should be the Sportswoman champion this year, but in the year we go with this British girl. Miss Northern Ireland certainly has a great record during the Sports competition. She was the third best girl in the long jump contest. Her group was the winner for the shuttle run. And she was the fastest swimmer on her lap during the swimming race. This should be more than enough to put her a strong contender for Sports title.
Close calls : Sweden, England, Scotland
Winner prediction : Philippines
We have seen singers and dancers performing and winning the Talent show of Miss World for years. But beat box is clearly a one in a million talent at Miss World stage. Therefore, we really hope and wish Miss Philippines, the queen of beat box, will win this category. Just take a look at the video of her performance above and you will certainly understand why we are completely wowed by her unique talent.
Close calls : Jamaica, China
Winner prediction : Ukraine
Easy, breezy, beautiful! Miss Ukraine is a clear example of a woman that you would love to see in beachwear. She has a great body, she has a beautiful face, and she has the confidence to show her beauty. A good beachwear model is not only required to have a good figure but also a strong sense of confidence. Miss Ukraine has those two, along with one of the most beautiful face in the competition, and we believe she is totally beach fashion worthy!
Close calls : Brazil, Philippines, Puerto Rico
