The election of GB’s most beautiful girl on the planet, who will be chosen among contestants who competed in the 4 Grand Slam pageants held in 2012, has started. The field of 81 elegible beauties (all winners, finalists, semi and quarter-finalists from Miss International, Miss Supranational, Miss Universe and Miss World) has already been narrowed to 50.

In Miss Grand Slam, competition starts from scratch. It does not matter who won, or who ranked where. GB analyses their performance in the Grand Slam pageants and picks its own favorites. For instance, Miss International 2012, Japan’s  Ikumi Yoshimatsu, the biggest shock in pageantry since 2008, when Karla Henry won Miss Earth (a former Grand Slam pageant), did not make the list.

Miss Grand Slam’s Top 50 list brings 11 candidates from Miss International, 12 from Miss Supranational, 12 from Miss Universe and 15 from Miss World.

16 Top 50 candidates are from the Americas; 13 from Europe; 10 come from Asia; 5 from the Caribbean; Africa and Oceania have 2 each.
