The search for the next Earth Warrior is officially on as Carousel Productions announced that the 2016 Miss Earth finals is returning to the Philippines after a much talked about edition in Austria, which ended with a back-to-back win for the Philippines.

As reigning queen Angelia Ong crosses out one country after another in her Miss Earth travel list, it’s alos high time for Missosology to reveal its first hot picks.

At this stage in the competition, we are seeing a three-way battle for the title between England, Australia and the USA.

Leading our first list is Luissa Burton of England who won her national title on her third attempt. This professional model has international beauty pageants (Miss Globe 2012, Miss Model of the World 2012) experience to bring with her as she competed in Miss Earth.

Not far behind is Australia’s Lyndl Kean, a Sydney-based model who has graced many fashion week runways. She was a runner-up in Miss Earth Australia last year.

In third place is another pageant veteran: USA’s Corrin Stellakis. She previously competed in Miss Teen USA 2014 and Miss World America 2015.

These three girls are equally well-spoken and aware of Miss Earth’s advocacies and anyone could be a great spokesperson for the organization and the Beauties for a cause campaign.

Check out the complete list below:

1 ENGLAND Luissa Burton
2 AUSTRALIA Lyndl Kean
3 USA Corrin Stellakis
4 GUATEMALA Stephanie Judith Sical
5 RUSSIA Alexandra Cherepanova
