In less than three weeks, a new Miss World will be crowned. The competition is underway in the United States as preliminaries are being held. And, as expected, everyone has their own favorites. Beauty pageant websites also have their own predictions on who the Miss World 20166 will be.

According to Missosology, the top favorite at present is Miss Puerto Rico, Stephanie del Valle Diaz, who is a stunner. Not surprising considering Puerto Rico’s pedigree in international beauty pageants. They have been pretty quiet in recent years but this year, Puerto Rico already has one crown under its belt – the 2016 Miss Intercontinental. Will Miss World 2016 be next?

Another heavy favorite is Miss World Mexico, Anna Girault. She was the top favorite a couple of weeks back but has now seemingly lost some ground to Stephanie Diaz. An international model, expect Miss Mexico to battle it out to the very end.

Miss World Philippines 2016, Catriona Gray, is the third favorite. Tall, beautiful and articulate, Catriona is a real standout. But more than physical beauty, her personality and talent are what sets her apart. Hopefully, Catriona will bring home the Philippines’ second Miss World crown.

The rest of the Miss World 2016 favorites, according to Missosology, are as follows:
