Mighty United States of America was dethroned by the Philippines to end the year with the coveted Big 4 Performer of the Year distinction, which is based on the total accumulated points earned during the year.  With a couple of wins – Miss Universe and Miss Earth – the Philippines duplicated their 2013 feat when they won both the Miss World and Miss International titles.  This year, however, they only managed to finish in the Top 10 at these two pageants, plus the Multimedia Award at Miss World, which were good enough to give them a solid 610 points.

USA, which was last year’s Performer of the Year, only settled for second place despite having a good start, with a 4th Runner-up and 2nd Runner-up finishes at Miss International and Miss Earth, respectively.  They failed to place at Miss World, but came back strongly at Miss Universe with a 2nd Runner-up finish, garnering a total of 450 points earned for 2015.

Venezuela, which won the Miss International title last November, failed to perform well at Miss World, a pageant that this powerhouse nation has been struggling to get right for four years now.  Despite the Top 8 finish at Miss Earth and Top 10 placement at Miss Universe, it was only good enough to put them in 3rd Place.  This is the fourth consecutive year that Venezuela has failed to enter the Powerhouse Hall of Fame, which last happened in 1977 to 1980.

    Hello Missosology! Janicel won Miss Best Dresser, Venezuela won Miss Perfect Body and Japan for National Costume in Miss International. Did you add these awards in the final ranking of these countries? Thanks! 🙂

    Look at the consistency of Venezuela since 1976. Truly unbelievable and probably will never be replicated again.
