The largest of the Big5 pageants in terms of number of contestants continues to attract beautiful and competent delegates this year. And with three months left before Mireia Lalaguna crowns her succesor in Washington, DC in the USA, it’s about time to reveal our FIRST HOT PICKS.

Leading our first list is the gorgeous Yaritza Reyes from the Dominican Republic. Prior to winning the Miss Mundo Dominicana 2016 title, Yaritza was Virreina Hispanoamericana 2013 and Top 10 finalist in Miss Universe 2013. While her catwalk skills and gorgeous body made her standout in Miss Universe, it couldn’t be denied that she could easily charm her way toward the Miss World crown with her experience and determination. She holds a degree in communications and is a model and singer.

The lovely Beatrice Fontoura from Brazil comes second. She started her modeling career at age 13 and has walked for numerous fashion shows around the word. She could easily win the Top Model event in Miss World with her experience and sophisticated bearing.

One of the best faces so far is Russia’s Yana Dobrovolskaya. She is a European champion and World Championship silver medalist in sport dancing and also an accomplished ballroom dancer. Expect her to showcase her dancing prowess in the Miss World Talent round.

Israel’s Karin Alia is in fourth place. This 18-year-old beauty is a senior Arts major, taking up dance and communication.

Ntandoyenkosi Kunene of South Africa completes our Top 5 for now. This 23-year-old beauty is an education honours student from Mpumalanga. She’s one of the most active so far in social media and has been doing a lot of charity works.
