[> Subject: Looking at this group of semi finalists, I felt many placed because of politics. Especially 2011, 2014, and 2018. Last year’s placement was a pleasant surprise. The girls in the other years performed well and deserved their placement. I have to say though, I was expecting Brazil to clap this year.

[> Subject: The only one out of this whole bunch that I really liked was 2013, Jakelyn Oliveira (in red dress). The others didn't do much for me and some finished a lot higher than I thought they should have (2011, 2010). I think the trend actually started in 2007, when Natalia Guimaraes finished as first runner-up, a total head-scratcher for me.

[> [> Subject: Actually I wasn't surprised by Natalia Guimaraes 1st RU finish. It was rumored in 2007 that Trump was planning to build a hotel in Rio de Janeiro. 2007 was Brazil first top 5 finish since 1981 and first top 3 finish since 1972.
