GB Awards 2018: Miss Universe wins "Best Contestants´ Introduction" Award
Miss Universe´s classy, modern and well executed contestants´ introduction, showcasing some of Thailand´s beautiful and emblematic locantions as background, was our judges´ number 1 choice in this category. Its downfall was the fact that for the first time in history, Miss Universe candidates did not have an individual moment on stage, even if pre-recorded.
Miss Grand International kept the formula it´s been using since 2015, and placed 2nd, followed by Miss World´s pre-recorded introductions, which had Sanya´s host resort as background.
Miss Supranational was a very close 4th place, 1 point behind Miss World, and Miss International was 5th, way behind the other four,
WINNER: MISS UNIVERSE - 77 points
2nd - Miss Grand International - 60 points
3rd - Miss World - 56 points
4th - Miss Supranational - 55 points
5th - Miss International - 12 points
See how the judges voted (from number 1 to 5. 1st receives 12 points, 2nd - 7 points, 3rd - 4 points, 4th - 2 points, 5th - 1 point):
