Several websites and missosologists, so-called pageant experts, put in their pageant predictions prior to the Miss Universe pageant. Since they always have a word or two in the world of beauty competitions, we always looked up to them and listen to their critical evaluations of who failed it and who nailed it. Now that Miss Venezuela already captured the crown, let us go back to these “pageants experts” and check out who failed in their predictions and who nailed it by guessing the right winner.
MYKIRU.PH – one of the blogs I visited regularly online, the site predicted Miss Spain to win. The blogger was made a bulls-eye in predicting the fourth runner up finish of Miss Brazil. Miss Venezuela was 8th on her list. Score: 11 out of 16.
STARMOMETER.COM – One of the websites I regularly visited for pageant news and galleries, this site picked Miss Puerto Rico as Miss Universe 2013 winner. Miss Venezuela was on their 6th list. Miss Philippines and Miss Spain was on their top 5 list and they had it right when they predicted that Miss Spain will eventually win first runner up. Score: 10 out of 16.
MISSOSOLOGY .ORG – armed with the slogan “analyzing beauty pageants”, the site’s top 2 picks - Miss Israel and Miss Poland did not even advance in the top 16. Hmmmm, I wonder what sort of analysis did they make. But, but, interestingly, 2/3 of their list entered the finals. Score: 10 out of 16.
GLOBALBEAUTIES.COM – one of the oldest websites that I followed since college, this site boasted of having followed the delegates even before they arrived in Russia. This site predicted Miss Spain to win. Miss Venezuela was their 7th pick. Of their top 5 pick, only Miss Spain made it. Score: 9 out of 16.
MISSOSOLOGY’S CIRCLE OF PAGEANT EXPERTS: AMADEUZ, TSATSABI, JOHN KEVIN, SEPHORA CHANEL, VALLERIAM, MARIA ANDREINA, NINA CLEOPATRA, MOCHA, VALLERIAM, MARCJACOB, MALKOVICH, HARAYA, QARLO, MISS COSMOPOLITAN, KENHAN, TITAN, JERRY, SANTI MENDBER, TERESE 23 & UNO - GOD OF BEAUTY – Uno totaled all the predictions of the list and they came up with 17 girls who they felt are most likely to make it. 17 because there was a tie in the 16th spot (Miss Russia and Miss Israel). Sadly, they picked the wrong girl as they field in Miss Puerto Rico to win Miss Universe. However, Miss Venezuela was part of their top 5 and they correctly predicted that Miss Spain will land on the first-runner position. Score: 8 out of 17.
SASHFACTOR.INFO – a new website devoted to beauty pageants but slowly gaining big hits among Filipinos, this site had Miss Philippines as their bet for the Miss Universe 2013 crown in their list. Miss Venezuela was 6th on their list. Gosh, they correctly predicted the placements of Miss Spain as first runner up and Miss Brazil as fourth runner up. Score: 8 out of 16.
RAPPLER.COM – Written by beauty queen Joyce Anne Burton, the website picked Miss Puerto Rico as their ultimate pick. Miss Venezuela was nowhere to be found in their top 20 list, what a shame! A big disappointment when Miss Joyce made impressive predictions during the Miss World Pageant. She must redeem herself in picking out her choices for the Miss International and Miss Earth soon. However, the site saved itself for predicting correctly the first runner up slot of Miss Spain. At least bumawi din. Score: 6 out of 16.
