Miss Universe 2015: Prediction Game
It is that time of the year again when filipinos go guns blazing versus the whole world: Welcome to the MISS UNIVERSE 2015 PAGEANT! Take out your nationalistic hats and flags, because on December 20th the world will see a new beautiful woman crowned (but we all know you only care about winning this achievement @meh)
It is time to test your skills!
It is very simple, the goal of the game is to obtain as many points possible by guessing which of the 80 countries will take the crown. Here is how the points will be distributed:
TOP 15/20 SEMIFINALIST : 50 POINTS x each semifinalist predicted
TOP 10 SEMIFINALIST : 100 POINTS X each semifinalist predicted
TOP 5 : 300 POINTS X each finalist predicted + 100 BONUS POINTS if placed in the correct position (1st Runner up, 2nd Runner up...)
MISS UNIVERSE 2014-2015: 600 POINTS.
MISS CONGENIALITY: 200 POINTS (among the 88 contestants)
MISS PHOTOGENIC: 200 POINTS (among the 88 contestants)
♠ SPECIFICATIONS ♠
If you correctly predict the winner among the top 5, but is not your #1 pick, you will only obtain 300 POINTS (for correctly placing her as a finalist)
If the winner of Miss UNIVERSE is not among your top 15, your total score will be divided in half.
In case of a top 15-10 and not 20-10, your 16-20 predictions will be discarded and only those from 15 onward will count. Thus, numerical placement is crucial.
♠ PREDICTING ♠
If you thought predicting MISS USA was hard, try predicting an international pageant! Like Miss USA, Miss Universe placements takes into account: body, facial harmony, smile, hairstyle,evening gown. On the other side, since it is international, it also includes Sash factor (how successful has your country been in the past), rabid fandoms, newcomers, first time placers, long-time-no-see placers and WTF surprises!
Predictions must be made by 7pm ET. Sunday Dec. 20th 2015
