On May 19th, a new woman (or not-LOL!) will succeed Chelsae Durocher as Canada’s representative to the Miss Universe Pageant in December of this year. This year’s line up is not as strong as previous years, but there are definitely some stand outs vying to be Canada’s next ambassador of Beauty. In all honesty, I already have my personal favorites and I hope that they do very well in this year’s competition. This year’s pageant consists of former competitors, newbies, experienced ladies and of course, the controversial delegate that has made headlines internationally, even changing the criteria of the Miss Universe regulations. Am I looking forward to this show? HELL YAH! This is going to be one year, where I think we will all be surprised. All I can say is that I hope that the rightful woman is chosen to represent the beauty and the diversity that Canada has to offer. With that being said, here’s my Top 5, based on what I know, who’s deserving and pageant politics.
In all honesty, I believe that Adwoa deserves a spot in the final 5. Although, she has competed numerous times in the past, I think that this year she’s probably going to be very well prepared and looking her very best. She’s made the Top 10 (I think) two times, and this year I think she’ll definitely be in final 5. I don’t think she will win this year, but who knows what the judges are looking for.
Being a former Miss Teen World Canada, competing at Beauties of Canada 2010, and representing the country at Miss International, Katie is ready to take the Universe by storm. As regal and improved as she has become, I think she needs a couple more years to really blossom. I find that she’s channelling Elena Semikina in so many of her photos and I want to see a different type of beauty represented. As well, Katie’s personality seems a little subdued, but I’m not going to lie, she is maturing beautifully. I’m pretty sure that she’s preparing like crazy because like so many, she also wants this crown. And to be honest, it could very well be hers, considering the fact that she hails from Ontario. If we look at the past 10 years, the rep has been from the east coast. If there is anyone that’s going to win the title from that side of Canada, it’s a shoo-in for Katie Starke.
Jenna represents controversy with a capital “C”. I’m not a big fan of Jenna Talackova. If I’m being honest, I have absolutely NOTHING against a transgendered woman competing in a beauty pageant. Being a gay male, I support anyone who decides to persevere against all odds, but only if it were for the right intentions. However, when the issues of discrimination came up, I was sort of confused. Just two years ago, she had competed in some Transgendered Beauty Pageant, hoping to be the best “transgendered” delegate in the world, and now she wants to compete at Miss Universe to become the most beautiful woman in the world? If she had classified herself as a woman to begin with, she wouldn’t have even bothered vying for the transgendered beauty queen title, and would’ve immediately went straight to Miss Universe Canada, if she were wanting compete to represent WOMEN. I just don’t get why she decided to do this now. It makes me wonder, if she really wanted to compete to be the most beautiful woman, or if this is all just a publicity stunt to get her 15 minutes of fame? Nonetheless, I know that Jenna will make the Top 5 at Miss Canada so that the pageant gains some popularity. But personally, I don’t think that Jenna should win the title, regardless. She may be tall, she may be a pretty delegate, but I’m just not buying her sincerity, or lack thereof, of the whole issue.
MISS UNIVERSE CANADA CHOICES:
My winner back in 2008 (against Samantha Tajik), I’m very happy to see that Sahar is back in the pageant scene giving it another go. Today, she still embodies the ferocity, the beauty and the elegance to make an impact at Miss Universe Canada this year. She’s lean, she’s poised and seems to be a really genuine person. I had the opportunity to have dessert with Miss Biniaz, a few evenings ago, and she’s a lovely person to converse with. Aside from that, she is very prepared to bring Canada back to the semis, if she is the lucky one who gets to wear the crown. I have no doubt in my mind that we will see Sahar as one of the last ladies standing.
What can I say about Suzette? This girl is awesome! I would consider her to be a well-seasoned pageant competitor and she’s also one of the strongest choices for the title. Not only is Suzette fabulously exotic, she has such an amazing personality to back up her charm. Being a runway model, and having competed in previous pageants as well, Suzette has pretty much everything it takes to break into the semis at Miss Universe this year. Being a fan and admirer, Suzette is more than prepared to win this title, as she lives, breathes and acts like a pageant titleholder. Watch out for this girl, because she’s also ready to take it all. I have a gut feeling that Suzette and Sahar will be the last ones standing…….AND they’re both from Vancouver!
Now given Beauties of Canada’s Track record since 2007 (with the exception of 2010), the final two standing are usually from the East and the West.
2007: Inga Skaya (E), Ramona Amiri (W)
2008: Samantha Tajik (E), Sahar Biniaz (W)
2009: Mariana Valente (E), Ylenia Aurucci (W)
2011: Chelsae Durocher (E), Elishia Sahota (W)
Within the last 10 years, a winner from the East has been crowned, so it’s highly anticipated that a west-sider takes the title this year. The frontrunners in my opinion are Sahar and Suzette…..and Jenna.
Comprising my remaining Top 15 (in no particular order) are:
So there you have it. Since I will not be following the pageant thoroughly, this is my final predictions list. I’m hoping for the best and I can’t wait to see who will be representing Canada at the Miss Universe Pageant in May. I can only hope that the woman that is chosen will best reflect what Canada is all about, in terms of multiculturalism, diversity and of course, the traditional values of what Canada stands for. I wish all the girls, the best of luck and I hope that whoever garners this title, will bring Canada back to its glory years at Miss Universe that was started almost 13 years ago, by Alberta’s, Kim Yee.
