|Subject: I would say the main favs to win were; 1999: Carolina Idriago, 2000: Lara Dutta, 2001: Eva Ekvall, 2002: Vanessa Mendiza, 2003 Ghislaine Ferreira, 2004: Shandi Finnessey, 2005: Natalie Glebova, 2006: Kurara Chibana, 2007: Honey Lee, 2008 Ingrid Rivera, 2009: Ada Aimee De la Cruz, 2010: Maria Venus Raj, 2011: Luo Zilin, 2012: Melinda Bam, 2013: Patrucia Rodriguez, 2014; Desiree Cordero, 2015: Pia Wurtzbach, 2016: Raissa Santana, 2017: Demi Lee Nel Peters, 2018: Catriona Gray, 2019: Paweesunda Drouin. Some of the years are very difficult determine, as example 2002 Vanessa cs. Ruth. France has been among the favs many times too: Iris and Mareva Galanter. Some girls were facs but I knew they were in the wrong place at the wrong time to win, Paweesunda and to a lesser extent Denise Cordero come to mind.
