Miss Grand Slam 2017: Meet the Top 16
We started with 128 beautiful young women representing countries and territories in every corner of the world. After 3 tough rounds, only 16 young women are left in running for Global Beauties' Miss Grand Slam 2017. One of them will be named our 20th Miss Grand Slam. In the third round of competition, the public vote counted 50% of final scores and our panel of judges votes tallied up the remaining 50%. It's time to meet our top 16:
