MISS UNITED CONTINENTS 2017 FINALISTS
Guayaquil. 33 lovely delegates from various continents of the world are vying for the crown of Miss United Continents 2017, now being held in beautiful Ecuador. Jesslyn Santos of the Philippines will turn over her crown during a spectacular final gala to be held on September 23rd.
Colombia’s Yenniffer Hernández is currently the heavy favorite to win the crown, based on the official Missosology forum. She is being followed by the delegates from Mexico (Roxana Reyes), India (Sana Dua), as well as the Dominican Republic (Jeisy Rodríguez).
Missosology got the chance to interview Yuika Tsutsumi of Japan, who is the third delegate in a row to compete from her country.
“I only had less than a month to prepare for this, but Ecuador is a dream destination of mine! As a bank employee, competitive swimmer and an amateur athlete, I would like to be a bridge between my country and Ecuador,” she said during a phone interview.
Judging from the previous years, the result of Miss United Continents had been surprising and at times shocking. Needless to mention, the delegates’ respective personality, intelligence and time management would eventually play a major role in selecting the winners, aside of course from their respective physical attributes.
Also known as Miss Continentes Unidos, the annual pageant is owned by Maria del Carmen of the Miss Ecuador organization.
