A few hours before the Miss Universe 2014 / 2015 Finals, Mykiru reveals its predictions of the results, of who will be crowned Miss Universe 2014 winner.
After evaluating their performances during the preliminary competition and considering your inputs in the survey I've conducted on this blog, we now have below the final list of hot favorites for Miss Universe 2014, which will already serve as our final predictions.
And the candidate who emerged as the final top favorite for the crown is Miss Colombia Paulina Vega. This 22-year-old model and student who sleeps with eyes open is perfection! She actually was
already the #1 pre-prelims favorite on this blog and she stayed on that spot. (Read: Miss Universe 2014 Pre-Prelims Favorites: Colombia's Paulina Vega, top favorite)
If ever Paulina Vega wins Miss Universe 2014, she will only be the 2nd Colombian to win the title, after Luz Marina Zuluaga who won more than 50 years ago (1958).
