A look at the 2015 winner

This year’s Miss World beauty pageant is following in the steps of last year’s updated format. The competition that was original created in 1951 under the name Festival Bikini, will not feature a bikini round for a second consecutive year.

The attempt to move the emphasis from external beauty to talents is believed to play a key role in determining the nationality of Miss World.

In 2015, Miss Russia was the most hotly tipped entrant to win the crown. With an opening price of 3.08 that moved further down to 2.89 nearing the competition, the Russian representative finished second after Miss Spain, Mireia Lalaguna Rozo, a 23-year-old model with a degree in Pharmacology, gave what many believe was a competition winning speech.

“Just because I am beautiful on the outside does not mean I am not beautiful on the inside”, she stated. 

Was it the speech what earned her the crown? Judging by last year, it is fair to argue that the “Beauty with A Purpose” presentation is a major aspect for bettors to look at when placing their bets. So, how do things look this year?

Meet the favourites

Currently at 2.84*, Miss Philippines is leading the Pinnacle odds in the Miss World 2016 betting markets so far with a considerable difference from the rest of the candidates.

Judging by last year, it is fair to argue that the “Beauty with A Purpose” presentation is a major aspect for bettors to look at when placing their bets.

Catriona Gray, born to an Australian father and a Filipino mother, is one of the most sought-after models in Philippines. Her country has a strong record in the competition with the previous crowing of a Filipino Miss World having taken place only three years ago. Will her exotic beauty make her the second Miss World from the Philippines?

Miss Mexico, Ana Girault , who was crowned Miss World Mexico in October, is second favourite in the betting markets. Priced at 6.70*, the international model might not represent the typical Mexican look but she is definitely one of the most hotly tipped competitors, closely followed by Miss Australia.

Apart from working as a model, Madeline Cowe is also a TV host and the first runner-up at Miss Universe Australia 2015. With plans to host a workshop for aspiring models and pageant entrants in Mission Beach, it looks like the Australian beauty is well equipped to score high at the “Beauty with a purpose” presentation. Currently at 7.18*, it will not be a surprise to see her odds shortening as we approach the main event, making her odds a good hedging opportunity.

Completing the top six, are the candidates of India (9.22*), Russia (11.98*) and Nepal (11.98*). India has won the Miss World competition five times, Russia twice, whereas the highest placement Nepal has achieved in the competition was in 2013, with the Nepalese entrant finishing within the top ten.

Who will be crowned the most beautiful woman of the world this Sunday? Join the action with Pinnacle’s unbeatable Miss World 2016 betting odds.
