The Miss Earth 2016 will be crowned tonight. More than 80 stunning beauties from around the world are ready to battle out for the crown and be an earth warrior. While most of the pageant observers are waiting for the finals coronation night, we have ranked 16 lucky ladies who we think have what it takes to make it as a semi finalists. For the past weeks we observed and noticed every girls in the competition, those who remained sophisticated and elegance despite their super busy schedules and activities.

Read Here: Miss Earth Week 2 Power Rankings

So here's our list on who are the girls who shine all throughout the competition.



Venezuela's Stephanie De Zorzi has been a huge favorite since 2014. Had she competed that year, she could have easily pulled a back-to-back Miss Earth crown for Venezuela but it wasn't her fate to compete that year. When the news broke this year that she will be Venezuela's representative her charm still there and didn't fade. Well, she's making sure everything will be in her favor. But wait, Ecuador's Katherine Espin could be her threat. Since the arrival of the candidates, Katherine had given all her best to be noticed and recognized, her effort paved way and that made her an instant front-runner who could easily give Ecuador's second Miss Earth crown.

Placing 3rd is a pageant veteran. Corrin Stellakis of USA has previously competed in the Miss Teen USA 2014 pageant and Miss World America 2015 pageant, with her experience she could easily slay other candidates and be the Miss Earth 2016, however in the past days she seems to lack-off and started to fade yet we still believe that she will make it.

Itzel Paola Astudillo of Mexico. Itzel battled out with 30 other candidates during her national pageant. She is a student of Veterinary Medicine. She is an entrepreneur and professional in the networking industry and marketing.

Daughter of Filipino actor, Cloie Skarne representing Sweden started to shine after the press presentation. She bagged several medals and is making way to winning the crown for her country. Do you think she'll be triumphant?

Completing our magic circle of 8 are, Korea's Chae-Yeung Lee, Denmark's Klaudia Parsberg and England's Luissa Burton. These 3 ladies could easily snatch an elemental crown or even the Miss Earth 2016 crown.

Leading our list is Philippines' Kylie Verzosa, a professional model and pre-school teacher from the Philippines who graduated from college with a bachelor's degree in Business Management is doing all her best to win the sixth Miss International crown for the Philippines. Her performance and presence in the competition is undeniable and with that she might walk away with the crown, if luck will be on her side.

Coming next to Philippines is, Emilia Seppänen, the angelic blonde girl from Finland has a very huge chance of winning the crown. It can be noticed that Finland has really been successful in the Miss International pageant. That's why there's no doubt that she won't make it, but should she win, it's because of her own merits.

In third place is, Venezuela's Jessica Duarte who is a top favorite to win the crown, Jessica is aiming for a back-to-back win for her country. Her beauty is striking with so much sophistication. Will she make a history in the Miss International pageant?

Placing fourth is Indonesia's Felicia Hwang. This beautiful lady is really determined in giving Indonesia the Miss International crown. No one can just ignore Felicia's charm. After Ariska's who was crowned Miss Grand International 2016, do you think it's Felicia's time to shine?

The beauty of this Nuestra Belleza Mexico finalist is admirable and that's why we put her on our top 5. She's one of the huge favorite to win the Miss International crown tonight. Geraldine Ponce could be the next Miss International from Mexico.

Miss Grand International 2016 winners

The controversial final question and answer question was the main highlight of the pageant. "If given the chance to choose between the two to stop the war, will it be Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton". Puerto Rico, Thailand, and Indonesia chose Hilary Clinton to stop the war around the world by representing the power of women. While, the United States and the Philippines chose Donald Trump because they believe that using Trump's influence could bring hope to stop the war.

Pertiwi believes that Hilary Clinton and her could make a big impact to fight against war. With Hilary as the future commander-in-chief of the United States if she wins and Ariska as the ambassadress, they could significantly make a big difference to stop the war.

Philippines' Nicole Cordoves won the 1st runner-up, Thailand was the 2nd runner-up, Puerto Rico was the 3rd runner-up and USA was the4th runner-up.
