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 Sportsbet

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.
