Subject: Excellent batch for Colombia. My faves are META and SAN ANDRES (both I believe were runners-up at Miss Earth), with ANTIOQUIA as a spoiler.

[> Subject: For what it's worth, There are 26 contestants, and 10 are black. Afro-Colombians make up 6.8% of the Colombian population. I believe these regionals were all castings, rather than actual pageants. So, one could say this is over-representation, but being as black women are doing extremely well in pageants across the globe recently, it's not surprising to see this level of representation. After all, representation matters. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see a larger number of black entrants at Miss Universe than in any year prior.
