Miss World 2016 predictions: Will PH's Catriona Gray win the crown?

A photo grid of my Miss World 2016 Top 5

My Top 5 is a hearty mix of everything that Miss World is all about – substance being the topmost consideration with beauty of face as the next benchmark. Catriona, Timea, Yaritza, Yana and Priyadarshini are all that and more.

I would have loved to squeeze in Diana Croce of Venezuela into the final fold. But for now, she is the one I choose as the likeliest to spoil one of the spots above in the ultimate run. She is a very close 6th on my list.

So that wraps up my forecast for the results of Miss World 2016. Do not forget the GMA-7 telecast of the finals on Monday, December 19 at 8am (promo teaser below).
