Was Denise Quinones already the ND that year of PR?

[> [> [> Subject: She appeared to be a little bored during the finals. Her prelims performance was much better (although I don't like her hair in the prelims EG). Canada was radiant in the finals.

And yes Curacao would be a good top 5 alternate.

[> [> Subject: It was shocking to me Canada didn't advance. The grandeur of her gown on stage was impossible to ignore, her 1950's Hollywood styling was impeccable, and she performed the 'wai' greeting midway on the runway to salute the Thai people. There was nothing more Marta could do.

[> [> Subject: I'm glad you mentioned Curacao because I thought she looked flawless. She was in my personal Top 5 that year after EG. And I agree with you that the level of beauty and performances in the last 2 editions of MU (especially Top 10) was quite strong. While I had a good feeling Cat and Zozi were going to win during EG, it was still a nail-biter for me to see who else would advance since the competition was stiff.

[> [> [> [> Subject: Albania has a such a HUGE fan base in Thailand. It was extraordinary that a country, which usually doesn't gain too much support was extremely well received and liked by fans. I also found it strange she didn't place.

[> [> Subject: LOL! Indeed they did pay a pretty penny. I actually loved Thailand's gown. My only criticism is that it was a tad short in the front. But it was a refreshing addition to all the illusion gowns we saw and like Cat's lava dress, the red color popped on stage so nicely.

[> Subject: Curaçao, Canada, Puerto Rico, Philippines, Vietnam. I love Tamryn but I much preferred her prelim look. Curaçao 2018 is so under-hyper, that gown performance was flawless.

If she had like the Colombia or USA sash, she might be Miss Universe.

[> [> Subject: Tamryn's prelim look was so ethereal and somewhat reminiscent of Oxana's winning look from 2002. I wish Tamryn had kept that look (at the very least her prelim hairdo) for finals. Even though I thought she was the most physically beautiful, I would have probably cut her from the Top 5 after EG based on that raggedy ponytail and being unable to walk properly in her column dress. But then I would have instantly regretted it.

[> Subject: When it came to the evening gown competition, I really thought Curacao could've been the spoiler and take the whole thing. Her gown performance was indeed flawless and elegant and would've put her over Puerto Rico. I was good with the remaining top 5.

[> [> Subject: Lu Sierra was lactating over Curacao as well. It makes you wonder what a small non-sash factor country has to do to actually advance all the way. Haiti managed it somehow in 2016. I thought Curacao should have at least made Top 5 here.

[> Subject: I would have replaced South Africa and Venezuela with Canada and Curacao, the latter two had exquisite flawless gown performances. SA gown issues were distracting and VZ hair was too simple for a gown like that.
