In our predictions, we were correct on three of the top five.
Miss India Harnaaz Sandhu and Miss Colombia Valeria Maria Ayos Bossa were the ones we missed out on, despite the fact that Miss Colombia was in our Top 10. Miss Namibia Chelsi Shikongo and Miss Puerto Rico Michelle Marie Colandoacute;n Ramandiacute;rez were the two we predicted would make the Top 5 but did not.
Miss South Africa Lalela Lali Mswane is the woman we think will win the competition.

Lori Harvey, along with Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere, actresses Urvashi Rautela, Marian Rivera, Adamari Landoacute;pez, and Rena Sofer, and supermodel Adriana Lima, served on the judging panel.
