This week’s Hot Picks is based on the arrival of candidates and during the sashing and registration. While this does not cover the recent developments and activities, our beauty experts can clearly see the star of Miss Mexico Melissa Flores shining. This could be the strongest indication yet that the fourth Miss Universe crown of Mexico is in the offing. Meanwhile, Miss France Diane Leyre continues to solidify her position as one of the frontrunners. Thanks to her approachable attitude and undeniable beauty, she is now one of the favorites of beauty experts.

Miss India Shweta Sharda came out from nowhere to occupy the third place in this Hot Picks. She’s obviously well trained. Everyone saw her elegance and eloquence the moment she arrived in El Salvador. Miss Poland Angelika Jurkowianiec mesmerized everyone with her captivating and alluring beauty. She’s a total package capable of capturing Poland’s first ever Miss Universe crown.

Rounding the Top 5 is last week’s leader, Miss Venezuela Diana Silva. She may have slid 4 places but that doesn’t mean she is out of contention for the crown. She is still strong and this Hot Picks will definitely change! Over the weekend, we will see a huge shakeup of the list as our beauty experts will analyze the candidates as they participate in various activities. So, if your candidate didn’t make it, don’t lose hope. No hate, just love!
