Since its inception in 2001, only two times Asian country wins Miss Earth, that is the Philippines, the country where it comes from, in 2008 and India, a classic powerhouse, in 2010. It's about time for another Asian country to claim the crown, and no one more deserving than the Goddess from Thailand, our top choice for Miss Earth 2012. The judges seem to love her too, and she has collected quite a lot medals, including gold medal for Best National Costume and silver medals for the prestigious Best in Evening Gown and Miss Photogenic awards.
The 7 years streak of powerhouse Venezuela seem will continue for another year as this country sends another high caliber contestant with a bright prospect to clinch an elemental crown. Medal queen South Africa, whose medal collection perhaps can only be rivaled by Turkey is also expected to make an elemental finish. Completing the elemental, we wish, should be USA. While she has not earned as many medals as the others, her complete package of beauty and brain should not be ignored or wasted.
Our other faves include Kenya - this year most beautiful black girl, Czech Republic - the blond bombshell of the year, Korea - the edgy-looking Asian beauty, and Brazil - a pre-arrival fave who has not made buzz as much as expected but should not be counted out either. These girls are also expected to be among the Top 16 tomorrow night.
So that is our final list of faves for Miss Earth 2012. We will find out who is the winner in just one more day. Stay tuned!
