The 69th Miss Universe has begun and all the contestants have arrived at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hollywood, USA, beginning their journey to the big night of coronation on 16th May 2021 where the stunning queens from all over the world will represent their countries and compete for the coveted crown. Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi from South Africa will crown her successor at the end of the grand coronation event.

With just a week away from the big night, the divas have started with the pageant activities including the photoshoots and interviews. Among these photoshoots happened the makeup sponsor shoot for which five queens were chosen similarly like last year’s shoot. In 2019, the five chosen queens were Croatia, Indonesia, Kenya, France and Colombia.

For this year’s shoot,  the chosen queens for the makeup sponsor shoot were, Iceland’s Elisabet Hulda, Puerto Rico’s Estefania Soto, South Africa’s Natasha Joubert, Philippine’s Rabiya Mateo and Uruguay’s Lola Santos Bicco. With pageant followers and fans anticipating their favorites for the Top 20 finalists, it is interesting to note that out of the last year’s five chosen queens, four made it to the Top 20, Croatia’s Mia Rkman, Indonesia’s Frederika Alexis Cull, France’s Maëva Coucke and Colombia’s Gabriela Tafur Náder.

Now with this year’s batch boasting of amazing talent and strong queens, it is hard to predict the finalists as all of the queens stand out exceptionally, but will the history repeat on the finale night, will this year’s sponsor shoot’s chosen queens make it to the Top 20 too ? Let us have a look at these five queens and their journeys so far –

Miss Universe Iceland 2020 Elísabet Hulda Snorradottir

Hailing from Reykjavik, Elisabet’s sincerity and dedication are her winning quotients at the pageant. She is fluent in languages such as English, Icelandic, Korean, and Japanese and is also learning Mandarin and Thai. Elisabet is advocates for learning from each other as global citizens. She is enthusiatic about learning about different cultures. She works with “Tolum Saman”, a program which teaches and aids in the learning of Icelandic language to immigrants. Iceland is yet to pioneer its win at Miss Universe, but with a strong delegate like Elisabet the country’s chances seem to have hiked.
