Miss Universe - Australia

It’s my favourite time of the year, summers on the way, the Footy Finals fast approaching, we’re starting to prepare for spring racing, and how could I forget Miss Universe! What a time to be alive!

As if it wasn’t already good enough, we’ve also got Miss Earth Australia, which is essentially Miss Universe but has a side-kicker of promoting environmental awareness, which is important but will be slightly overshadowed in today’s preview…

If you’re a long –time fan of Oddschecker, you’ll know we go crazy for any beauty pageant, and this year is no different. Sportsbet supply the odds and we spend days studying the field. Last year Oddschecker tipped the Aussie representative Monika Radulovic, and hopefully we’ll repeat the fate in our preview below.

Firstly, we’ll analyse the contenders and pick out a few fancies to represent Australia at Miss Universe before we go on to study the Miss Earth market.

Before we look at the market there is a couple of things you need to know. Entrants can’t be married (we’ve still got a chance…), and the contestants are judged in three separate categories; evening gown, swimsuit and personality interview (some categories might take preference over others when making our picks). Also if you fancy a punt on the markets, you'll need a Sportsbetaccount! Join today and get $100 to bet with when you deposit $25 (T&C's apply. Excl NSW, VIC, SA, WA)

We can’t start a preview without looking at the favourite. Caris Tiivel took out the Miss West Coast award and now sits at $4 to be Miss Australia. The 23 year old stated recently she was looking forward the Bali trip with the girls, which we imagine will be very different to our last trip to Bali, even so it suggests she’ll tick the personality box. Also, if you do happen do accidentally click on her Instagram, you’ll become aware she’ll also do very well in the swimsuit contest.

Second favourite Marijana Radmanovic is currently $5 in the market. Marijana recently completed a degree in Psychology & Marketing, the definition of brains and beauty. And after being educated in Psychology she’ll know how to work the judges.

If you’re chasing a roughie, then Marz Hill is your girl. Marz will shine in the bikini contest as she’s a personal trainer, and will be winning brownie points with the judges as she wants to promote healthy modelling and inspire youths, something we expect she’s already accomplished… At $41 it would be criminal not to have a cheeky punt on her.

Our tip to take the award is third favourite Georgie Mitchell at $6. We went very faint when we came across Georgie’s profile, it’s certainly one that gets the blood pumping. Georgia completed her Master of Business Admin / Master of Entrepreneurship & Innovation before moving to sunny Sydney. After hours of studying her Instagram, we’ve decided the $6 is massive overs. See for yourself.

Miss Earth - Australia

Onto the Miss Earth representative, which remember is all about promoting environmental awareness. Once again Sportsbet provide the odds on this market, and they’ve priced Charlotte Mellis as favourite for the crown at $3.5.

Charlottle is from Queensland and in her own words isn’t your usual pageant girl. However she sees the competition a good way to make a difference and become an advocate for change and conservation. She recently travelled to Indonesia to participate in marine conservation and is an ambassador for Sea Shepard here in Australia, quite the catch hey.

Even though they’ve all done a lot of admirable things, there’s nobody who can really compete with Charlotte’s achievements. Second favourite Lyndl Kean is a vegetarian who’s using Miss Earth to raise awareness of environmental effects caused by animal agriculture. She’s trying to influence people to eat less meat, enough said….

Our pick is Lavinia White, the blonde bombshell originating from NSW is priced at a ridiculous $9! Lavinia aims to promote an environment in which food is sourced and produced locally, reducing the waste! More Aussie farming! How can’t we back her, Aussie Aussie Aussie.

We love our job sometimes! Time to delete the history before the missus logs on. See the full Miss Universe and Miss Earth markets here.
