  1. Pero quedamos en lo inicial, esta joven de padres alemanes provenientes de Argentina, no es el prototipo del pais.

  2. Yo tambien naci y creci en Panama. El censo del 2010 efectuado en Panama dice que el 70% de la poblacion es mestiza (mezcla de Aborigenes y blanco), 14% mezcla de Aborigenes y gente del Caribe (negro), 10% es blanco, y 6% Aborigen. 10% no representa la mayoria en ningun sentido.

    • Estas en lo correcto, pero segun tu respuesta original decias que la mayoria de la poblacion panameña tenía algo de negro, cuando los mestizos son claramente la mayoría.

  3. Rocco: Si buscas en el propio censo del pais veras que la mayoria son mulatos, una mezcla de negro con otra raza. Como dicen “No hay mas ciego que el que no quiere ver.”

    • @A Fleming: Yo nací y crecí en Panamá, y te garantizo que tu informacion esta erronea. Te recomiendo que te informes mejor.

    te equivocas en Panamà la mayoria no somos negros, es una minoria al igual que los indios, la mayoria es latina y blanca. busca negros en en lugares o barrios pobres como colon,darien,puerto armuelles, chepo, pacora e incluso chorillo, rio abajo, calidonia, curundu , samaria y sectores bien pobres. no generalize

  5. Es triste que Panama con una mayoria de la poblacion con raza negra, siempre escoje a personas que no representan a su poblacion. Cualquiera que conoce el pais sabe que esta joven no representa la realidad.

  6. Miss Universe Panama is very classy, look at her posture, she’s well educated nice personality, I think it was,the perfect choice,to represent the country further.

  7. the black woman for miss earth!

    • They already selected a representative for Miss Earth

  8. congrats to miss panana org. you hold the franchise of big 4 pageants!
    the lady in white gown or the black girl should have been chosen for miss earth they are beautiful!
    whats wrong with the judges???

  9. Give me a break. The black female is much prettier than all of them.

    MISS PANAMA UNIVERSE LOOK GORGUEOS, IS VERY SMART, SPEAK ENGLIGH, WAS MODEL AND TV PRESENTER. SHE IS BEST THAT MEXICO,PUERTO RICO,COLOMBIA,PERU UNTIL MOMENT.

  11. please take a look of the real pics in google…mMW is the youngest and lovely nice face, very smart..the best siluet, and Mu looks like the typical foreign woman , needs some botox around the eyes, shows wrinkles and some wierd nose and no lips… Me is more beautiful than her…

  12. I wonder why I find Miss Earth delegates to be prettier than the ones going to Miss Universe?!

  13. I think this is one of te best sets of winners this year! Panama Universe is gorgeous, just needs to change her hair color maybe to a darker shade and get a nice white gown! Panama World is an angel, so Miss World like! She just needs to turn her hair blond maybe!

    Panama Earth is pretty, and there is something really interesting about Panama International! Great choices, and I love the crowns!!!

  14. The Earth and International crowns look good, but the design of the Universe crown is too over-the-top and the World crown looks like a hat.

  15. Miss Panama World is beautiful! she deserve go to MW, This pic is not good for her, also i think she change hair color and is not working. but you can google MARICELY GONZALES and you gonna give me the reason :)

  16. Love the evening gowns…and the crowns!!!!

  17. lucen muy fuertes sobre todo la ganadora , felicito al organizador. muy buen grupo este 2012.

  18. Por dios pero si la que va a MISS MUNDO es la mejor. Ustedes sólo se fijan en esa foto?? Es su peor foto. Ella es extremadamente bella en vídeo y otras fotos.

    I think only Miss International Panama is ok… Miss Panama Universe 2012 is ok, but I do not to see her at top 16… sorry…

    Ad: I think like you, MIss Panama World 2012 don not have the look for Miss World…

    I am Panamanian…

  25. Ibanez looks like Mary Tyler Moore

  26. I think only Miss Panama International has a chance of making the cut.

  27. Panama Universe, Earth & International are all 3 beautiful & strong contenders. Panama World looks too old & weird & doesnt look to be a good MW contender.

  28. i think Ms Panama-Universe is a good contender for the pageant. good luck! :-)

  29. Hmmm. They all look beautiful.
