Comments: Johannesburg was a great host at Miss World this year. The performers were great and the pageant had many excitement. Miss Russia World deserved it. She has wisdom and a great facial appearance. The Miss World Organization will have a great year with this next titleholder.
 
In PB's predictions, for the first time ever, PB predicted the winner correctly. Four semifinalists were earlier announced but PB managed to put eight more semifinalists on the predictions' list. Two alternates also made the cut. PB only excluded Miss Puerto Rico World in the top 15, other than that PB did a good job. Miss Vietnam World did win Miss People's Choice although Miss Ukraine World did not win the World Designer Award, Miss United States World did and she looks excellent in her gown. Congratulations to all winners and PB will have coverage again in Johannesburg, South Africa for Miss World 2009.

Miss Venezuela World continues to lead poll
Miss Venezuela World continues to lead the Viewers' Choice poll. She has been the leader for weeks and seems to be a huge favorite. Misses Mexico and Puerto Rico trail behind second and third. Voting will end tomorrow.
 
Miss World Beauty With A Purpose Top 4 finalists:
  • Miss Hungary World, Szilvia Freire: For working with the NEM ADOM FEL Foundation, dedicated to the awareness that handicapped and disabled people are of value to our society, and to make these individuals feel accepted.
  • Miss Kenya World, Ruth Kinuthia: For working with a school in the slums of Nairobi mainly for students who have been orphaned by HIV AIDS, helping raise funds for the sustenance of the school, as well as being a role model for students.
  • Miss Mexico World, Anagabriela Espinoza: For assisting the Casa Hogar of Jilotepec, "Ayuda y Solidaridad con las Niñas de la Calle", which means help and solidarity with little girls from the streets. Anagaby created a dynamic game called "Pass the Crown" where she would ask the children about their best personal quality, and then award them a tiara.
  • Miss Trinidad & Tobago World, Gabrielle Walcott: For working with the Just Because Foundation, which works to give hope and health alternatives to children living with cancer. While working with them, she decided to create hospitable conditions for these children since the present ones were not adequate. Gabrielle helped raise about $100,000 in Charity for the creation of a new children's ward.
Congratulations to the four finalists. Please note that Miss Mexico World already won Miss World Beach Beauty 2008. This means that one of the three finalists will win the award. Congratulations and good luck to all three!
 
The last fast track event, Miss People's Choice will be announced tomorrow. The delegate with the most votes will automatically make the top 15.
 
Since 2006 judges took part in preliminary interviews and chose some of the top 15. In 2006 there were top 17 semifinalists and seven of them were chosen by the judges. Last year the judges chose ten of the top 16 and six of the delegates made it through fast track events. This year nine of the15 semifinalists will be chosen by the judges. Earlier the judges made their picks and selected their favorites. The nine selected semifinalists will be announced tomorrow like last year.
 
Predictions
The time has come again. One year has past and the reigning Miss World 2007, Zhang Zilin will relinquish her crown. This year there are many favorites from Americas and Europe and PB thinks that the winner will come from those regions. This year PB will select regional Miss Worlds and here are the results. First is PB's Miss Africa World:
 
 
Congratulations Miss South Africa World 2008, Tansey Coetzee. The South African delegate has also placed 13th at Miss Universe 2008. Misses South Africa have always done well at Miss World and Miss Coetzee seems prepared. Last year Miss PRC, Zhang Zilin also won in her home country so the host delegate has a chance of repeating her victory. Angola looks stunning and Uganda seems very strong. Darkhorses in this region are Nigeria and Botswana.
 
Next up is PB's Miss Europe World 2008. The winner is...
 
 
It's her, Miss Russia World! Miss Russia World 2008, Kseniya Sukhinova looks beautiful and seems to be the strongest Miss Russia World since 1992 (when the nation won courtesy of Julia Kourochkina). She is on the top of many pageant fans' list and bookmakers' list. She has already won Miss World Top Model (like last year's winner, Zhang Zilin). Except Miss Kourochkina to do well. Miss Ukraine has also continued to stay fit and stunning since her win. Very likely both women will vie for the Queen of Europe title. Third in Europe is Miss Czech Republic World who is another favorite. Iceland's Alexandra Ívarsdóttir has already won Miss World Sports 2008 and has made the top 15. Can she manage to go all the way and become Iceland's 4th Miss World since Unnur Birna won in 2005? Croatia, Spain, Poland, and Belgium are good alternates too. Europe is indeed a competitive group this year.

Next is PB's Miss Asia Pacific World 2008. She is

India has produced five Miss World winners and Parvathy Omanakuttan seems prepared. Miss Indias does very well in interviews and PB is pretty safe to say Miss Omanakuttan will impress the judges. Miss Philippines World goes behind in second with a strong delegate. Miss Turkey looks facially beautiful, so as Miss Thailand World, and Miss Kazakhstan. Darkhorses in this region are Misses Australia, Japan, and Korea. However Miss Malaysia World seems to be gaining favoritism and may pull a surprise. Miss Hong Kong China World is also a flight attendant and her communication skills are excellent. Can she win the judge's interview and make it?

Miss People's Choice is also likely to come from this region since pageant fans from countries of Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand vote and support their delegate to the fullest.

PB's Miss Caribbean World 2008 is

Miss Trinidad & Tobago World, Gabrielle Walcott. Miss Walcott may follow her predecessor's path and may take Queen of Caribbean. Miss Puerto Rico, Barbados, and Martinique follow in this distinct group. Miss Barbados World already made the top 15 after winning Miss World Talent and she can pull a surprise too. Miss Jamaica World has also fared well in the pageant and she not be looked down.

Lastly is PB's Miss Americas World 2008. The winner after much consideration is:

 
The winner is Miss Mexico World,  Espinoza Marroquin Anagabriel! Miss Anagarbriel already made the top 15 after winning Miss World Beach Beauty and she is one of the best Miss Mexico Worlds ever. Miss Mexico World has never won a Miss World crown before and Miss Anagabriel has the potential to take it all. Brazil is trailing right behind Mexico with the stunning Tamara Almeida. It is likely to be a fight between both for the Queen of Americas title. However Misses United States, Venezuela, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Chile, and Uruguay are all possiblities too! Worthy to note in this region, Miss Honduras World was a top 8 finalist in Miss Earth 2004 and so as Miss Chile World in Miss Earth 2005. Both are experienced and are darkhorses.
 
Other delegates that have international pageant experience are Miss Martinique World who was a top 16 semifinalist in last year's Miss Earth and Miss Brazil World was second runner up in Miss Tourism Queen International 2007. PB will reveal PB's Miss World 2008 and Viewers' Choice winner tomorrow. Stay tuned!
