46th Miss InterContinental pageant
The Duchess Pre-Arrival Review





*this top 15 is based in the fact that this is another pageant that picks their top 15 with continental placements.






Bubbling Up: Colombia, Mexico, Australia, France, Guadaloupe







Rounding up the top 15:
15th Place: Portugal (Beatriz Gomes), 14th Place: Korea (Lee Su Jin), 13th Place: Netherlands (Catelinje Heppens) and 12th Place: Poland (Anette Szmakska)







11th Place: Puerto Rico (Josmarie Soto)
Now for the girl from home I have to say I find myself very conflicted with Miss Soto, which is not a good thing. I remember this girl from the years she participated in the MUPR and MWPR, I saw those pageants and they gave me the same feeling. She is a good performer but there’s something missing, something that doesn’t let me call her a winner. Now for me she is not exactly the strongest face, mostly given to her mouth… something in it doesn’t sit well with me. And as we could see in her crowning interviews she is pretty well spoken, so I think she should focus on performing and styling. Puerto Rico is very strong in this particular pageant, even getting a crown last year with the stunning Heylimar (I actually hated her styling last year, but she is beautiful). But I just don’t see her as strong of a candidate to bring back that back to back. She is a sure Top 15 based solely on preliminary performance but I don’t think she should go further. NOW, I actually wouldn’t be surprised if she snatches the North American crown because of the organization she is with. They are good at training these girls and getting results, this year both Brenda and Larissa got Top 5 places at MGI and MS while not being the prettiest or best bodies in the competition. Then why did they place? Because of Communication, Performance and Personality; so, I would focus on that if I were Josmarie.











10th Place: USA (Karen Basco)
Now Karen has been up and down in my list and its mainly because I wish I saw much more from her. Do not get me wrong, her face and modeling skills are more than proven on her social media. Also, the communication americans bring to the table is not one to dismiss. BUT I wish I saw more of her like walking, on photoshoots ect; it would probably help my assessment. But for me this girl is one of the placements I am surer about and definitely a sure North American placer.











9th Place: Malaysia (Sanja Kishope)
Malaysia is a nice addition to my list and I have to say what impressed me the most besides her face was her interviews. She seems to be in complete control when being answered question and you can’t tell if she is nervous or not. That will do wonders for her in Egypt, hopefully her styling will go accordingly too. That black straight does WONDERS for her look so I hope she has brought amazing looks to go perfectly with it. If she performs well in the preliminary on the 10th she could be another contender for that Asian sash. I am keeping an eye on this girl in order to see much more from her, but as of now I feel she is a semifinalist.













8th Place: Czech Republic (Sarah Karolyiov)
Now this is the only one of the three replacement girls that I have on my list as of today and it’s because this a very beautiful girl who seems can penetrate that top 15. Now she also has to prove to me that they made a good choice because I was a huge fan of Alice and Francesca Mifsud (Miss Malta until the replacement). I even had them both on my top 5 in the last hotpicks, and mourned both of their departures, although I understand. And I am not saying Sarah is not capable but I think I would be lying if I said that my expectations were not affected when Alice left. BUT BUT I still think perhaps she could pull a Jessica Shell specially with her catwalk skills. I found them a bit stompy in her national but with the right whisper of a dial down, she could be a subtle entry. I would stick with the light brown straight hair like in her picture, it’s for me her best look and should keep using it.











7th Place: India (Priyanka Kumari)
This one is also the last girl for her national pageant to participate and actually this is a pageant in which the other winners actually placed (one winning) their pageants. So this is one girl who is probably under huge pressure but I actually would not worry about her at all. The Femina pageant has crowned very good representatives this year and this one is no exception. She has a natural fresh beauty that will make her a huge hit in Egypt. I do think that her best looks have been with beautiful voluminous or braided hair so I definitely think it would be wise to keep that line of styling. I really want to see how this girl performs and goes head to head against heavy favorite Katarina. She has for me everything to place in this competition.














6th Place: Venezuela (Maritza Contreras)
OH how my heart hurts and bleeds for only one queen from South America because Maritza could be an incredible queen. She has a beautiful face that translate perfectly into her professional and her candid pictures. In motion she looks very beautiful, specially with natural makeup just like in her pictures. Her body is Venezuela so it’s obviously a strong point just like her communication skills. Also, a woman with personality and flavor on the catwalk is not one to be underestimated. The only thing I am worried about is that sometimes Venezuelan queens tend to be a bit over processed in pageants, which most of the time hurts their chances. But if this girl can avoid that and sticks with the super light styling she is using now… there is going to be a bloodbath for that South America sash. Sigh, I love this girl.
















Queen of Africa: Algeria (Tahri Ibtissen)
I have to be as honest as usual: I am not the biggest fan of team Africa this year against the other groups. I feel like its filled with rather cute girls but none of them as like a 100% queen. YET I found this girl who is Algeria with this little tiny face taking beautiful pictures and candids. I see a girl with a bubbly personality that could quite discreetly take away the continental sash. I kind of find her to have a refreshing look after so many months of pageantry. She has this subtle beauty that made her the only girl in Africa I truly remember. NOW ignoring the rest her continent would be a HUGE mistake because they may no be as pretty yet they can turn a performance. But for now, this would be my number one pick for the African title, now could she get past 5th place? That is still yet to be decided.












Queen of Europe: Russia (Natalya Naydenko)
Now Russia is a beautiful girl with an incredible body whose could take that European crown if she has prepared herself well. The candids amongst other areas seem to be very strong and perhaps she can create the same impact as Polina and Ksenia. This is probably my favorite euro girl, and the one who I think has the strongest chances to that Top 5. A very good asset this girl has is that she is an amazing model, her face photographs excellently in both candids and professional pictures. If you go to her social medias you will see, she looks great in many different types of hairstyles and makeup styles. Which will prove to her versatility which is extremely important, also her walk. I actually have to say she is quite stunning in her walk, although a bit strong for my taste but then again that is easily fixable. So to keep it short, this girl is very strong and should be taken very seriously because Russia is having a VERY good year all across the board. They placed in MW, ME, MGI and in Miss Universe Ksenia was painfully excluded for reasons I will never understand as she was a vision. BUT I am going to focus on the now and unless she bombs her chances with a bad performance there is no way this one won’t be in that top 15. Could even give my top 2 a run for their money easily.













Queen of North America: Canada (Mattea Henderson)
Okay now Canada is a very interesting candidate for me because in the beginning I didn’t see her getting as far as right now. I did not find her strong enough to take on candidates like Venezuela or Brazil, but she has actually come into her own element. I feel she has gotten stronger, specially her communication skills in which she looks approachable and friendly. She is also speaks two languages (one in conversational level) and works with different organizations focusing on head injury awareness amongst other related causes. A very interesting part of her advocacies is her passion to promote her country and promote growth in it. Her personality is one of a very nice educated woman who could make the judges feel like she is again approachable. For me, she should combine that great personality make with some amazing styling and some strong catwalk (which unfortunally I haven’t found). If she does these things she would be a strong contender of the North America title, her toughest competition in there could be USA and even PR depending on how strong they come.















Queen of South America: Brazil (Amanda Cardoso)
I have to say that if there is one candidate that has shown growth in this year since her crowning is Cardoso. I always saw potential in this girl but in the first one two pictures I found on my google search I didn’t see a winner. Later I saw her on social media and little by little she grew on me with incredible force. What I have noticed about her is that she is extremely versatile in her look, which will definitely help her in her journey. She can take pictures that are bubbly just like she can go sultry without exaggerating or looking porn-ish. Her candids are actually one of her strongest points which means she could look her best in front of judges and on television. She is also a bilingual educated woman who works against the violence against women, cancer and child poverty; all very current and important causes. This could and will work in her favor along with beautiful Brazilian flavor, that incredible body and that ever stunning smile (her strongest point). She actually even photographs longer than she is, her proportions are excellent. I actually want a girl like this to win a pageant and after Heylimar I think this one would an excellent successor. I feel that if she gets to that question round the only thing to stop her from winning would be a bad answer. Do not underestimate this girl, I have a feeling with her that could take her very far if she performs well. For me she should vary her hairstyles and makeup during the length of the pageant so she can show that versatility. That versatility could be what gets her that crown, of course along with that personality. This is officially my sentimental favorite.












Queen of Asia: Philippines (Katarina Rodriguez)
Well I think it’s obvious that this would be the one girl who shouldn’t be worried about her performance unless she really bombs it. This is the last Pinoy girl to participate in the 2017 batch of Binibining Pilipinas and after Mariel, there is huge pressure on Katarina. Since 2014 there hasn’t been a placement of their crowned girls, so for me I hope the pressure doesn’t get to her. For me she has the best face of her national pageant and also photographs extremely well. We also know that her communication skills and catwalk has most probably been polished by her organization. It would be extremely interesting to see how far she has come when she arrives on Egypt. She is bilingual too and I find her candids are extremely good which gives hope that she won’t miss that Top 15 spots. Another great thing is her HIV/AIDS awareness, another very important one that still haunts us. Unfortunally her weaknesses during her national pageant were her catwalk a bit and her body. Now I have been seeing some pictures of her body but honestly until I see it in motion or you know somewhere else than a professional picture to make a better assessment. I actually think she actually improved in the body department and I do think she has high chances to win. So, I guess we will have to wait and find out how this girl does in Egypt, could she bring the first binibining crown of 2017 or will clap? The important thing to remember for her is to perform because that for me was the cause of De Leon’s unplacement. She was a bit big, sure but for me her biggest issue was that she performed a bit lackluster. So, Katarina needs to push it forward so she has a chance of catching that crown. For me it’s between her and Brazil.

We all know how political this pageant is. Tracy Ann is beautiful, but she did not deserve to be the first runner. Other girls are far more beautiful than her. Also, this pageant is one of the oldest pageant in the world but still it is regarded as a Minor Pageant. I wonder why? :%))
