She will be eyeing to be the second Miss Universe from Greece. The first Miss Universe from Greece was Kyriaki “Corinna” Tsopei who won Miss Universe 1964. In the early years, Greece enjoyed many placements in Miss Universe. In 2000s, Miss Greece Evelina Papantoniou finished first runner-up to Miss Puerto Rico Denise Quinones in Miss Universe 2001 that was held in Puerto Rico. Many believe that Evenlina had this in her bag and she would have won if the pageant was not held in Puerto Rico. She looked downright stunning in swimsuit and evening gown competitions. The last placement of Greece in Miss Universe was achieved by Evagelia Aravani in Miss Universe 2005 that was held in Thailand and was won by Miss Canada Natalie Glebova.
Mikaela Fotiadis has a strong competition to face in Miss Universe 2015. She is having almost no time to prepare now! She will be facing pageant stalwarts like Miss USA Olivia Jordan, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach and Miss India Urvashi Rautela. Let us hope she brings a placement to Greece this year! It’s been a really long time.
