Philippines consolidates its position as the planet´s number 1 beauty pageants´powerhouse

In overall terms, a perfect combination of results helped the Philippines to finish on top of the Grand Slam Ranking for the 2nd consecutive year, now with a considerable distance to Venezuela (2nd). Taking into account that in 2018 Venezuela must defend its winning points from Miss U 2008, things look even more promising for the Philippines in the year ahead.

It was also a fantastic year for Colombia, previously 7th and now 3rd. The Top 10 remains unchanged, but notice that Thailand keeps on growing (now 8th) and Indonesia (currently 11th, up 2) is very close to make it to this select group for the first time in history. The USA, on the other hand, suffered a huge drop, going down from 3rd to 9th place. Will the US manage to stay in the Top 10 in the future??

Although Europe is the continent with most nations scoring and ranking (40), its current main powerhouse, Spain, is only 12th in GB´s ranking. England/UK (19th) had an above average year and has entered the Top 20 for the first time in a long time! 

Japan and China have been dropping in the ranking in the last few years. Japan for instance, placed 13th in 2015, 17th in 2016 and is now in 20th place. China went down from 16th to 18th and is now 21st, being out of the Top 20 for the first time in many years. South Korea, on the other hand, has won its first Grand Slam title (Miss Supranational) and raised from 26th to 24th place, manacing to surpass China and Japan in the near future. Another Asian mid-power, Vietnam, went up 4 notches leaving the 31st position in 2016 to be now 27th.

Africa, with no surprise, is led by South Africa, which after winning its 2nd Miss Universe crown, went up 4 notches and is now 13th. Kenya keeps on the rise in the region, going from 38th in 2015, to 33rd in 2016 and now to the 31st position. Angola switched places with Kenya in Africa: 30th in 2016, it was gone down 10 position, currently placing 40th. Kenya is now 2nd in its continent.

Peru (32nd), Italy (40th) and Costa Rica (42nd), had a fantastic 2017. Peru and Costa Rica went up 8 notches each, Italy, 7. Sweden also made a significant move, going from 60th to 48th place (up 12 positions). Mongolia (49th) has finally made it to the Top 50. Another African emerging power is South Sudan, now 56th (up 14). In Europe it was also Portugal that made a considerable move, going from 67th to the 58th place (up 9).

The biggest movers of the year, after fantastic showings in Miss Supranational (3rd place) and Miss International (2nd place) were Romania (up 24 notches, it went from 87th to 63rd place) and Curaçao (up 27, from 93rd to 67th place). Curaçao made the most impressive move of 2017.

Macau has good reasons to celebrate: 114th in 2015 and 100th in 2016, it now enjoys the 87th position. Ethiopia (93rd) is back in the ranking, and Laos (also 93rd) debuted quite well in the Grand Slam Ranking. 

After a long drought, Bolivia, up 11, is back to the Top 100, in the 100th position (tied with Chile, which dropped 15 positions, and Israel).

Liberia and Malta scored again after some time, and Bangladesh debuted in the GS ranking, all three tied in 110th place.

Greece, 76th (-23), is the biggest dropper of the year.
