Will Marta Stepien be crowned Miss Universe 2018?

Plenty of big news abound in the sports world. But on December 16, the 2018 Miss Universe Beauty Pageant will be the biggest competition of that evening. Canada's own Marta Stepien is the co-favourite to win it all alonside Colombian counterpart Valeria Morales. It's hosted at the Impact,  Muang Thong Tani in Bangkok, Thailand by Ashley Graham and the returning Steve Harvey. Let's take a closer look at the Canadian.

Stepien (Canada) (+1000) is the favourite with Morales (Colombia) (+1000). Both Canada and Colombia have won the pageant twice each with their latest coming in 2005 and 2014, respectively. With 94 women competing for the title, there are no “sure bets” to win. Even if Stepien looks hard to beat.

Stepien is stunning and that is her biggest asset. Right when she’ll walk out in the opening, she’ll catch people’s attention with her flair. She is confident and carries herself well. Whatever outfit she comes in, she’ll be memorable and should be a shoe-in for the second round.

The swimsuit and gown rounds are where she’ll dominate. Stepien was a class by herself during the Miss Canada Pageant. She is tall and chiseled out of a superhero story making her irresistible in a swimsuit. And she will match that with elegance in her dress.

Stepien should breeze into the final round, which is the biggest question for her. She displays sympathy and panders to the audience’s heart, which should bode well. But she has yet to prove if she has the poise to answer a more technical or controversial issue.

It’s a safe bet that Stepien will make it to the final round, but it’s a tossup from here. Questions make or break the contestants, and it’s all luck of the draw. Stepien is confident and intelligent and should handle her question well. If it all adds up, she’ll finish in the top-three at least.
