4. Czech Republic
6. South Africa
After Asian triumphs at Miss World and Miss International this year, we really hope for another Asian to come on top at Miss Earth 2012, and she is Thailand. With a naturally gorgeous face and packed with charm and elegance, she deserves the crown this year. The elemental spots for our Leaderboard are reserved for USA, a combination of stunning looks and smart brain (she is a World Miss University titleholder), Venezuela, a very competitive contestant with a strong sash factor to back her up, and Czech Republic, a super sexy vixen and, in our opinion, the best blonde this year.
South Africa and Turkey have both done very well in the medal tally and are expected to go far in the competition. Korea is edgy and stands out with her "I am not your typical Beauty Queen" look Kenya is such an ebony beauty and we expect her to fill the token spot given to "woman of color" contestants this year. Nepal is our sentimental fave. She is one of the best delegate ever sent from a country which rarely makes any impact in pageant, and we really wish she will make a history for her country.
With one week to go and still more awards and challenges to come, expect some changes for our Final Leaderboard to be published later this week. Until then ... stay tuned!
