Miss Universe 2017 preliminary competition was recently concluded. Although the show is yet to be aired, video of the swimsuit competition is available on the internet. Our experts went through the video and picked up around 20-25 contestants who they feel did particularly well and can be considered as potential candidates for the position of Miss Universe. From these, the experts then undertook the herculean task of picking the Top 10 and then ranking them.
