Pia still a strong bet, but slips down Miss U pre-pageant frontrunners


pia12015128The Philippines’ bet to Miss Universe 2015 PiaWurtzbach may have started the race to Miss Universe as one of the Top 10 contenders as predicted by Missosology—a leading beauty pageant observer website—but as of late this week, the credible source has downgraded the Filipina beauty’s standing to No. 12 from No. 6.

In previous Missosology predictions Wurtzbach was described as “battle ready and one of the most disciplined contestants in the history of Miss Universe.” The site further noted, “Even if she fails to win her country’s third crown, no less than a Top 5 finish will be bestowed upon her.”

Nevertheless, Wurtzbach remains to be one of the most visible and strongest contestants in pageant, whose coronation night will be held on Sunday in Las Vegas, California. She participated in the pre-pageant talent show on December 13, and even appeared in a “Stop Hunger Now event” the day before. Wurtz-bach was also spotted at National Gift Auction and the Chinese Laundry Sponsor Event at Zappos last week.
