AUSTRALIA TEGAN MARTIN

She's extremely photogenic, and her body is tight. Her interview has us feeling like she's Malibu Barbie with a Jane Next Door kind of finish. The gown, while beautiful, does not really do her tight body justice, it's safe but, she has what it takes to get a top 15 call out.

AUSTRIA JULIA FURDEA

A top contender from the moment she was crowned in Austria, this brunette has such presence. She's a head to toe model, I mean she made Golf look sexy in the swimsuit photos! Her video showed her darling style and she's got a smile that is infectious. Not only is she a top 15 candidate, but we can see her easily in the Top 5.

COLOMBIA PAULINA VEGA

Pageant experts have touted her as a winner, after her official photos we can see why. Her interview shows a beautiful personality, she's witty and bubbles and we love her official gown selection, she rocks it. Not the strongest body of the bunch in swimwear but she has a face that makes up for it.

COSTA RICA KARINA RAMOS

She's one classy lady, sophistication and poise for days. Her interview was ok, but her edge is that physique and her poise in her photography. That dress is also quite a brave choice, but it's one I can see her working on the runway.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC KIMBERLY CASTILLO

Stunning, she is easily one of the most photogenic of the bunch, but her interview left us wanting more. Can she make the top 15 - for sure, can she get the crown? This week will tell, she has to have a strong presentation in order to stay in the running, but she's going to be on that final stage.

INDIA NOYONITA LODH

This is where we hope there is a gown change, up until now, Miss India was leading the pack, one of the strongest reps they have sent since I would say Lara Dutta, however the taste level of her styling is a big issue. Her interview, however, is one of the best. She's very articulate and lovable, and she can engage you and keep your attention. Dress withstanding, she's going to be in the top 5

IRELAND LISA MADDEN

She's got an etherial beauty that still has me intrigued. The gown isn't the strongest and we wish she had more to say in the interview, but hey, she's got top 15 Potential. This week she has to push hard if she wants to make that top 15 cut.

JAMAICA KACI FENNELL

A top contender, Jamaica has been catching the attention of experts and fans of the franchise alike. An edgy girl, who has that swag that is rocking both the swimwear and the spectacular gown. She's also quite fun in her interview and can woo anyone she speaks too. Top 5 for sure!

PUERTO RICO GABRIELA BERRIOS

She's a stunner alright, and she's a vivacious model. Rocking a very unconventional gown this year, she is one of the top models in the contest. Her interview was just - ok, so she has to bring the heat level up in the prelim judging this week.

Where has she been hiding this entire competition? I'm in love with this girl, her body is beyond stunning and her confidence in the evening gown is amazing. Her interview is possibly one of the best ones we've seen in a while! Careful girls she can steal the crown right under your noses. Top 5 contender alert!

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO JEVON KING

This island girl started very strong in the first week of the competition, her beach body and striking evening gown photos have had people going crazy online for her. Her interview was Ok - and we think it's enough to get her into the Top 15 but Miss TT really needs to push in this next week if she wants to make Top 5, and she has the potential to do it!
