The Final Hot-Picks of TGPC for Femina Miss India 2014, along with fan commentaries, is as follows.

Rank # 10 Varsha Gopal



  •         “Varsha Gopal is an exotic beauty. She is simple yet sophisticated in her own way. She is a good model. She is charming and beautiful, but I think she definitely needs to step up her game. A little more spark and she can do wonders!!!!” – Saloni
  •         “I think she is a standout when it comes to international style & make up, so she exactly knows how to put her best step forward.” – Pravin

Rank # 9 Amarjyot Kaur



  •         “An absolutely stunning girl who has lost herself between the 23 others. She has a top favourite earlier but I hope she can pull herself up for the finale” – Urvashi
  •         “Pretty Face, Decent body competing in the wrong year… She can place if she wins Multimedia…” – Adney

Rank # 8 Deepti Sati



  •         “The Surprise package. I love this girl, she has pulled a huge surprise, she is beautiful, the dusky skin tone suits her so well making her exotic and hopefully she can win one of the 3 crowns.” – Urvashi
  •         “Well DEEPTI is honest at heart…and when I saw her video I started liking her…when all the girls were saying they wants to be MISS WORLD that’s why they want to win MISS INDIA,,, Deepti said She is worthy of MISS INDIA crown which I really liked……” – Iftekar
  •         “She is a classical Indian beauty. Deepti is multi-talented. A good dancer she also designed her NC.” – Chetan

Rank # 7 Mansi Grewal



  •         “Mansi Grewal is diamond in the rough, I see the other Manasi (Universe’13) in her, and if she puts enough efforts then she will be on the same journey as Manasi Moghe. If it was any other batch, she would have won the crown but she is competing in the strongest batch since 2006.” – Adney
  •         “Mansi Grewal has a really pretty face, which it has properly styling, can launch a thousand ships… However I feel she is overshadowed by other strong co-delegates.” – Lisbern


Rank # 6 T J Bhanu



  •         “Perfect example of natural beauty which India is known for, hardworking (and) that shows… Despite less experienced in the world of modelling, she has such a huge fan following already!” – Pravin
  •         “T.J. though beautiful, I feel, is not properly groomed. Her hair and skin are a mess and so is her dress sense.” – Chetan

Rank # 5 Aradhana Nayar



  •         “Aradhana stands out for having a unique face. Along with that there are other notable factors which make her stand out like her toned curvy body and speaking skills also her ability to stand out in every photo shoot.” – Adney
  •         “Aradhana has the same Shristi Rana vibe going on in her but it is her competitive edge that sets her apart from the rest. She is one of the best spoken girls and that body is killer!” – Lisbern

Rank # 4 Yoshiki Sindhar



  •         “Yoshiki: she is a diva… she is so sultry and enigmatic… d only hitch is her skin tone and her body…but she can work upon it coz if she wins she has a lot of time to get sorted.” – Kartik
  •         “She has natural elegance, class and poise written all over her which she occasionally jams up by a lil pout n eye squint to transform into a fun yet sexy vixen. Her beauty most importantly is saleable to both men n women. Her SS shot is very women friendly while her charm can be enticing to men. All that combined with her singing talent, tall frame, modelling experience, intelligence, beauty and growing popularity makes her a force to reckon with.” – Theo


Rank # 3 Koyal Rana



  •         Koyal has a glowing face, a strong presence on stage, aura of a miss world queen and she is very confident. She is beautiful inside and out, she has been doing so much for the welfare of underprivileged children. Above all, she is a pageant veteran, so she has a strong edge over other contestants. She has good communication skills and is always calm and composed. All these qualities make her a top contender for the crown.” Saloni
  •         “It’s been more than a month since we came to know Koyal well and she is growing in our hearts with each passing day. Her beautiful face, charming personality, modelling skills, well-shaped body, good communication, and a true Beauty with a Purpose… She has a golden heart to help the needy. She is pageant veteran and won a national teen pageant over the likes of Urvashi Rautela and Vanya Mishra prove her metal. Overall she is ready to fit in the shoes of Navneet. However she needs to fill up her body which I find a bit skinny for Miss World.” – Smit

Rank # 2 Jhataleka Malhotra



  •         “Jhataleka is a photogenic girl! Coming all the way since Miss Diva has given her enough pageant experience. She nailed all the photo shoots in FMI and won National Costume award over the front runners like Gail & Jantee with Angelique presentation of her elegant tricoloured peacock gown. Julia must be impressed! Though her body is still not transformed since Miss Diva, she can be good choice for Supranational, if not sent to Miss World. Supra loves such faces. All she needs to do is transforming the body into a stunner and learn to present it.” – Smit
  •         “Jhataleka is really a wonderful girl, carrier lots of grace with herself. She can be fierce and decent, photogenic and an embodiment to look at. It won’t be a surprise if she wins this year.” – Sonia

Rank # 1 Nikhila Nandgopal



  •         “She is a confident, beautiful girl, who has it in her to win the top title. She is talented, strong in her walk. She needs to work more on her body and she might just win the International title.” – Urvashi
  •         “She is peppy and seems to be very fun loving… she is doing great at just 18… I hope she works on her styling and her hair… Her eye bags need to be taken care off.” – Kartik
