Miss Universe 2015, the 64th edition of the prestigious beauty pageant, is scheduled to happen on Monday, December 21 (Manila time), at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Eighty two of the most beautiful women in the world, including our very own Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, will vie for the Miss Universe crown.
While we don't have the slightest idea on how to score the evening gown competition, or how these women keep those oversized headdresses on their head, we still love watching this pageant. For one, you get to see the hottest females in the world—and of course, the swimsuit portion.
To give us a glimpse of just how fantastic these women look like in bikinis, the Miss Universe organization generously shared all the contestants' swimsuit photos on their website. You probably know what we did next: We checked it out—for journalistic purposes of course!
Below are our 15 favorite candidates!
Amina Dagi, Austria
The 20-year-old beauty queen is multilingual. She can speak German, Russian, English, and French. She also won a state championship in judo back in 2006. Your perfect combination of beauty and brawn!
Alysha Boekhoudt, Aruba
Alysha's homeland is an island country located in the southern Caribbean. She loves dancing and spicy food.
Radostina Todorova, Bulgaria
Her nickname is "Radost," which basically means joy in Bulgarian. Just look at that wonderful smile!
Yun Xue, China
This 21-year-old is a Broadcasting major graduate. She hopes to host her own TV show one day. Also, that's a loooooong torso. #DumaDaraAbs
Fatima Rivas, El Salvador
Face, curves, appeal: Fatima has it all. Well, there's actually one thing she lacks—according to her official bio, she doesn't know how to sing. Uhm, we'd still love to go karaoke-ing with you, girl!
Joanna Cooper, Ireland
Avigail Alfatov, Israel
Avaigail is a natural-born badass. She's currently enlisted in the Israeli Air Force, and is a seven-time Israeli fencing champion.
Giada Pezzaioli, Italy
This 22-year-old's dream job is to run a luxurious bed-and-breakfast in Salento, Italy.
Samantha McClung, New Zealand
Aside from collecting pageant titles, Samantha is also a professional makeup artist. We'd hire her.
Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Philippines
Of course, she's in this list! We're all-in in supporting this Filipina-German beauty come Monday! Good luck, Pia!
Weronika Szmajdzinska, Poland
If you can say her surname in one try then we salute you, bro! Also, is it just us, or does she have a striking resemblance to Max Collins?
Vladislava Evtushenko, Russia
Her name's fiery but look at that angelic face! Just like any other girl though, she loves selfies and karaokes.
Paulina Brodd, Sweden
Paulina has been a vegetarian since she was six. Her mom also won the Ms. Universe-Sweden title back in 1992.
Melisa Uzun, Turkey
Meliza's other passion is dancing. Fusing ballet and modern dance, she has toured all over Turkey, Mexico, Bosnia, among others.
Olivia Jordan, USA
Olivia is the heavy favorite to win it all. A big F.R.I.E.N.D.S. fanatic, she can quote every episode of the sitcom.
