Subject: I'm going with1999. While I cannot say that all 5 were on my favorites list, I could easily have seen each of them with the crown. Leading up to competition night, I was all about Venezuela and Botswana. During the competition, I begin to think that the crown was going to Spain or Philippines. South Africa, though not a favorite of mine, was also strong. 1999 was a very solid Top 5.

[> [> [> Subject: Indeed. Plus, that entire production in Trinadad remains one of my favorites (....only one way, to do the limbo!!!). And, the annoucement of the Top 10...bone chilling!!! I'm laughing right now thinking about how many times I said "Ohhh Sh*t" as it became more and more apparent that at least one sash factor country was not going to make the cut. That's pageant night excitement right there. Finally I know that she wasn't a traditional semi-finalist, but I LOVE that Ghana made the Top 10.

[> [> [> [> Subject: I remember being so excited that Mpule won. All through the pageant I kept thinking "Wouldn't it be something if Botswana won?" but I just assumed that it couldn't possibly play out that way, mainly because my favorite almost never seems to win, and Botswana was about as non-sash factor as you can get, LOL.

[> [> Subject: 1999 had me sitting at the edge of my seat. Loved the production but was nervous India would make the Top 5 and steamroll over everyone thus clinching the crown, which I'm sure she would have, as she placed 1st in Top 10 interview. Luckily, her SS score kept her out of the Top 5. lol

[> [> [> Subject: India 1999 ended up 6th after the semifinals; there was 0.11 difference between India and Philippines who was 5th after the semifinals. Had the cuts been Top 10/Top 6/Top 3 that year, MU 1999 would've had an entirely different result. I believe India 1999 is the reason interviews were eliminated from the semifinals as of MU 2000.
