Martha’s Chance at Miss Universe 2016
Martha has a pretty face but that alone can’t save her at the most competitive beauty pageant in the world. She needs to work on her body and styling to compensate for her height. Considering the way the new Miss Universe Organisation works and Martha will be the first delegate from Malta in 15 years there is a rare possibility that she might place (just a crazy fan theory). So far we don’t see Malta being called into the top 16 of this year’s Miss Universe edition.
