Miss Earth 2017: TGPC’s Official Hotpicks

Tonight is the night when Miss Earth 2017 will be crowned at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Metro Manila, Philippines. Katherine Espín of Ecuador will crown her successor at the end of the event. This year Miss Earth had 86 beautiful ladies from around the globe competing for the titles of Miss Earth, Miss Earth Fire, Miss Earth Air and Miss Earth Water. The whole month has been the adventurous for all girls; they participated in different events related to environmental work and of course the preliminary competition. Here are the final predictions of our experts.

MISS EARTH 2017 – THAILAND (Paweensuda Drouin)

Miss Earth Thailand 2017

This 23 years old beautiful lady from Bangkok Thailand has been the top choice of many pageant portals to win the coveted title of ME and the moment she landed in the Philippines, she didn’t disappointed her fans. She has not won many medals but she did win the tittle of Miss Hannah. In past the girls who win this title later won the main title too.

Miss Earth – Air 2017 – USA (Andreia Gibau)

Miss Earth USA 2017

This beautiful black beauty from Brockton is the biggest threat to Miss Thailand; she has the best catwalk skills; when it it comes to stage presence, she literally burns the stage with her aura. She is an excellent speaker too! It’s going to be a nail biting fight between Thailand and USA in the finals.

Miss Earth – Water 2017 – Philippines (Karen Ibasco)

Miss Earth Philippines 2017

The home-ground girl has been absolute treat to watch; she might not win the main crown, but yes she deserves to be in Top 4. She is definitely upgrade from the last year delegate and not to mention, she proved her worth in each and every round. She has won the most number of medal too. 

Miss Earth Fire 2017 – Netherlands (Faith Landman)

Miss Earth Netherlands 2017

Her beauty itself is so captivating! This girl wasn’t even a pageant portal favorite but after her arrival, she slayed throughout the competition and her win will not be a surprise.

Top 8 Finalists

Venezuela (Ninoska Vásquez)
Venezuela never send their delegates unprepared and you can certainly see it in every performance of Ninoska. There are better girls, but never ever underestimate the power of Venezuela! 

Panama (Erika Parker)
One of the best Miss Panama winners ever! She is strong and can give pretty good fight in the finals. Winner material? No. But a Top 8 placement is probable.

Puerto Rico (Karla Aponte)
Karla won the title of Best Eco beauty video. She spoke about the recent tycoon and it’s damage to the country. It touched the hearts of everyone.

Nigeria (Eucharia Akani) 
The 19 yrs old Eucharia is not popular but she is definitely an underdog in our eyes. She stands out in many of the pictures from the pageant and can be the face of Africa in finals.


Top 16 Finalists

Australia – Not the strongest from Australia, but yes she is good enough to place.
Colombia – Good stage presence!
Russia – Stands out in the weak European contingent.
Ukraine – Good enough to place!
Switzerland – Good speaker and ah, what a nice hairstyle! 
Ecuador – Back to back win? No way! Placement? Very much possible.
Indonesia – Great speaking skills but weak in catwalk.
India – Fab profile plus excellent speaking skills.

Peru, Vietnam, Mexico, Angola will complete our Top 20. Within few hours, we will know the winners! It’s pretty clear that the organization puts a lot of efforts behind the pageant and they deserve appreciation for the same.
