The talent competition is the first event in the list of Miss Earth preliminary activities for this year. It was held last night, November 10, at the Diamond Place in HCM, Vietnam.
18 short-listed contestants competed in the said event and bagging the prize is no other than Miss India, Nicole Faria.
Making it to the Top 5 were Miss Crimea, Anastasiya Sienina; Miss Vietnam, Luu Thi Diem Huong; Miss Japan, Marina Kishira; and Miss Singapore, Maricelle Wong.
The Top 18 candidates who competed in the event were Misses Japan, Jamaica, Italy, Guatemala, Singapore, Brazil, England, Ireland, Guyana, India, Thailand, Botswana, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Guam, South Africa, Tonga, Crimea and the host Vietnam.
Winning the talent competition has no bearing in the selection of semifinalists in Miss Earth but it will surely give the winner the attention she needs to be recognized. Apparently, Miss India is one of the early favorites in Miss Earth.
