TOP 15 PICKS
Shoo-ins: I think Asia is ready for its second Miss Earth Queen. Miss Vietnam has a hometown advantage and we have to consider that Luu Thi Diem Huong is really a strong candidate. Miss India, on the other hand, can easily rock the final question and answer portion if she makes it that far. Or perhaps the crown will stay in Latin America with Miss Ecuador and Miss Venezuela as the possible contenders.
Strong Alternates in the Top 15: Philippines, Thailand, Bolivia, Curacao, Puerto Rico, Northern Ireland, Slovenia, Guam, Nepal, Nicaragua, Poland, Crimea, USA, China, Germany, Chile, Slovenia, England and Netherlands.
