Our experts decided and have chosen Philippines' Rachel Peters to lead the pack. Undoubtedly, she is one of the strongest Philippine delegate to date. She is surely winning and killing it. She has all what it takes to be the next Miss Universe queen. Rachel loves coffee, the beach, surfing and interior design. Rachel found a way to combine all the things she loves by opening a small cafe on the small island of Siargao. She is an advocate for celebrating one's individuality despite all the noise and pressures of social media.

Coming next to Philippines is, Mexico's Denisse Franco. 18-year-old Denise pulled off a comanding stage performance. She showed everyone that she is indeed a sure bullet for the crown. Denisse recently graduated from high school and now pursuing a degree in medicine with a future plan of becoming a gynecologist. She works closely with Smile Train that provides free cleft and lip palatte surgery to children globally. She also works closely with a charity where she is able to visit abused children in their foster homes. She is grateful to be able to provide the children information and assistance about their health and self-esteem. Denisse is really in it to win it.

It's always a dream of every country to win a back-to-back crown. Placing third in our list is Alicia Aylies of France. She looks like a barbie during the preliminary competition. She has a likeable stage aura. Alicia is on her first year studying law before embarking on her reign as Miss Universe France. She has spent over half of her life dedicated to the sport of Fencing, leading her to win numerous French Caribbean Championships. Alicia considered herself a tomboy growing up, only learning how to walk in a pair of heels when preparing for her first fashion show. She plans to continue raising funds for different volunteer programs on a larger scale, and mentoring aspiring young athletes interested in Fencing. Does she have what it takes to win a back-to-back crown?

In fourth place is the 22-year-old Sofia del Prado of Spain. Her exceptional performance during the preliminaries will secure her a sure spot. She grew up in Villarrobledo, Albacete, but has been living in Madrid for four years. When she graduated high school, she moved to Madrid to go to college to pursue a degree in International Relations. After graduation, she carried out her internship at an international winery in the Department of International Commerce. Now, Sofía plans to pursue a Master's degree in International Business and Commerce. If she takes home the crown, Sofía would like to work closely with Red Cross to help in any way she can with the refugee crisis.

They've been long dreaming for it and might win the crown this year. Coming in fifth place is, Thailand's Maria Poonlertlarp. She's for sure feeling the pressure as they placed in the top six last edition but she has done her job well. She has a strong performance during the preliminaries and that supported the hype about her. Maria earned her Bachelor's Degree in International Business Management and a Master's Degree in Marketing. Maria enjoys trying new things, especially foods from different cultures. She is passionate about sharing the importance of sex education for the safety and health of teens. She is also concerned about her countries environment as Thailand is one of the leading SEA countries contributing to trash in the seas. She believes that it will affect the global and national environment, as well as the tourism. If she takes home the crown, Maria hopes to continue to educate and help prevent the two causes that she is most passionate about.

In sixth place is Laura Gonzales of Colombia. She might be a downgrade compare to the past three representatives from her country but we're not counting her out just yet. Laura has been preparing herself to be an actress since the age of 16. After she graduated from a performing arts school where she studied acting, she moved to Bogotá to kick start her career. Since taking the risk to pursue acting, Laura has worked to develop herself in theater, short films and TV. Aside from acting, Laura enjoys relaxing activities such as Yoga and Pilates. Laura hopes with her experience in front of an audience, she will be confidently crowned the next Miss Universe.

Coming next and in seventh spot is Brazil's Monalysa Alcantara. She displayed an amazing aura and gave a strong performance during the preliminaries. Her personality is impressive that' why she made a name for herself in Brazil for pioneering a beauty self-awareness organization. She dreams of being a world-known influencer for women rights, race and gender equality. If she takes home the crown, Monalysa hopes to advocate for beauty self-awareness throughout the world.

Placing eight in our list is Lauriela Martins of Angola. Her vibrant and youthful look gained attention, adding to that is her solid performance during the preliminary competition. She is currently a first year Architecture major who is working on a project where she brings orphans on trips to visit historical landmarks and sites. She enjoys swimming and other active sports, especially if she can combine them with her love of going to the beach. In 5 years, Lauriela hopes to have finished her studies, and have built a name for herself in the architect industry. This will be Lauriela's 3rd pageant, and she hopes it will be the one that will bring her the Miss Universe crown after Leila Lopez in 2011.

Securing a spot is Chile's Natividad Leiva. She can be the face of the competition but her styling doesn't fit her well. She is a professional model and Muay Thai boxer, who is finishing her last semester in the Accounting School at the University of Santiago. She works as a spokesperson for the fight against HIV, by speaking out on prevention and creating awareness in order to decrease the number of people in Chile living with HIV. Natividad won the title of Miss Universe Chile on her third try, achieving the first runner up title in 2014 and 2016. Natividad is looking forward to representing her country on an international stage and achieved her dream now as she competes for the Miss Universe crown.

In tenth place is Sophia Koch of Germany. She has a pretty face but pretty face alone won't secure a spot in the semis. Good thing, Sophia does not only count on her face as she is one of those who gave a strong performance during the prelimimaries. It's a no wonder that she is seen in the lists of other pageant sites and experts. She enjoys keeping herself busy with school and she is studying social studies, language and literature. When she isn’t hitting the books, you can catch her spending her time with photography, making YouTube videos, or working on her modeling. She is passionate about giving children equal opportunity to a happy life and full education, and she actively participates with a couple of groups that have this same goal. Sophia looks forward to using her time with the crown to make an impact on children all over the world.

Completing our sixtenth finalists are; Great Britain's Anna Burdzy, Bunga Jelitha of Indonesia, South Africas Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters,  USAs Kara McCullough, Kseniya Alexandrova of Russia and Venezuela's Keysi Sayago.

Miss Universe 2017: Final Picks

It's that time of the year again where 92 beautiful women will battle it all out for the crown; the Miss Universe crown.

With only a day and few hours left before the 66th edition of the grandest pageant in the universe which will crown its new queen, the stakes are really getting higher. Preliminary competition, close-door interview, and national costume show are over. Now is the time to pick your bets.

Mexico's Denise Franco is my top pick for the crown. This 19 year-old high school graduate who is pursuing a degree in medicine will surely rock the Miss Universe stage. She works closely with Smile Train that provides free cleft and lip palatte surgery to children globally. She also works closely with a charity where she is able to visit abused children in their foster homes. Denise is really in it to win it.

In second place is Maria Poonlertlarp of Thailand. She has Bachelor's Degree in International Business Management and a Master's Degree in Marketing. She works and is passionate about sharing the importance of sex education for the safety and health of teens. Maria may not be the bet in Asia but surely she is doing her best to be her country's third Miss Universe winner.

Coming next is Philippines' Rachel Peters. This lass loves coffee, surfing, the beach and interior design. She graduated with a degree in business. She is an advocate for celebrating one's individuality despite all the noise and pressures of social media. What more interesting about her is, she's always up for the challenge. And the greatest challenge she's about to conquer is winning the Miss Universe crown.

Dreaming for a back-to-back after winning the crown during the 65th Miss Universe pageant and placing fourth in my list is France's Alicia Aylies. This law student has spent over half of her life dedicated to the sport of Fencing, leading her to win numerous French Caribbean Championships. She considered herself a tomboy growing up, only learning how to walk in a pair of heels when preparing for her first fashion show. She plans to continue raising funds for different volunteer programs on a larger scale, and mentoring aspiring young athletes interested in Fencing. Will she make it this far?

Completing my circle of five is the super favorite to win the crown, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa. She made history during her high school studies for holding two leadership positions. She is passionate about a program she helped develop to train women in self-defense in various situations. She plans to share these workshops and help as many women as she can. She might have lost her sparks during the preliminaries but I still believe in her.

Making it to my top 16 are; Venezuela, Spain, Indonesia, USA, Russia, Brazil, Angola, Canada, Chile, Dominican Republic, Germany. Aruba is my alternate.

It has to come from the heart. It has to be natural. I believe that kindness is a universal language that if you treat people with tolerance, patience and love, you will understand each other. The Hispanic culture is not about language only. It’s about love for God, love for country, love for history and culture and love for family. As a Filipina with a unique heritage, I have instilled that. I am ready to promote the Hispanic culture not just in Asia but in the whole world. It is time to celebrate the Hispanic culture.
