Germany has placed around 20 times in Miss Universe pageant till now. The country was very strong in the initial years of the pageant. In fact Germany placed continuously for a decade since the year of inception of Miss Universe. The highest placement of Germany was achieved by Marlene Schmidt, who won Miss Universe 1961. However, Germany fizzled out in the past few decades. In the past 20 years, the only placement of Germany in Miss Universe was achieved by Natascha Börger, Miss Universe Germany 2002 who was Top 10 at Miss Universe 2002. Will Johanna Acs bring Germany back on track in Miss Universe?
Johanna Acs: Chances in Miss Universe 2016
Germany has been weak in Miss Universe pageant since long time, but there are many reasons to believe that Johanna may do well this year. She is a pageant veteran, having participated in 4 major international pageants already. She is tall, lean and pretty. Her modelling experience and international exposure will also help her. She is definitely in the list of girls who we think have a good shot at Top 15 placement.
