Finally it’s here: the Top 20 beauties of 2012!  They have been judged based not only on beauty, but mostly on their overall performances during their participation on the 4 Grand Slam pageants: Miss International, Miss Supranational, Miss Universe and Miss World.

It seems like the judges did an overall great job on the 4 pageants: all top 5 finalists from Supranational, Universe and World are in the Top 20. Miss International’s only entry in the Top 20, Miss Sri Lanka, was also a finalist in Miss Int’l (3rd place). All winners, except Miss International, who placed 72nd on the complete list and didn’t advance to the Top 50, are still contenders.

The American continent and Asia have 6 quarter-finalists in the Top 20 each. They are followed by Europe, with 4. Africa and Oceania have 2 each. The Caribbean has none, which means that Deanna Robins, Miss Jamaica World and 32nd place, is Miss Grand Slam Caribbean 2012.

Miss World has 8 beauties still competing, Miss Universe has 6, Miss Supranational comes next with 5, and Miss International has one hopeful still running.

Who will make the next cut?? We will announce it soon.
