But while the world is reaching for its mobile phone to SMS in a final chance for the local beauty queen, the bookies have their own line-up. Online betting on who Miss World 2005 has reached the usual frenzied pace, it's an every year thing.
With a new regional voting system in place, the field is wide open. But there always will be favourites.
Miss American Virgin Island
On the betting charts, Miss Philippines is hot and Miss Russia is not doing badly either. The latter has already made a place in the final 15 by winning the Beach Beauty sub-contest.
Odds are changing every minute and, happily, Miss India, Sindhura, is slowly inching her way up. On oddschecker.com on Thursday morning, Miss Philippines was favoured to win at 4/1, her closest competitors are Miss Italy and Miss Canada Islands at 14/1 each.
Miss American Virgin Islands has also ensured her place in the final line-up, winning the talent show sub-contest. She vowed judges with her powerful singing voice.
Bookmakers have lined up six beauties across continents next â€“ Miss Italy, Miss Namibia, Miss Iceland, Miss England, Ms Costa Rica and Miss Canada. They are all given a 16/1 chance at winning the crown.
Miss Puerto Rico
Bringing the top 10 to a round figure of top 15 are beauties from six other countries, including India's Sindhura. They are quoted at a 20/1 chance of winning the coveted crown.
Of the front runners, Miss Philippines, Carlene has been a model and even played, hold your breath, a pig fairy on TV.
Miss Russia, the stunning Yulia, was clearly not born a beach babe, though she has won the Beach Beauty title. Yulia is a Siberian. She teaches style and aspires to be a television presenter.
Kmisha-Victoria, Miss American Virgin Islands, was born in the USA and moved to Virgin Islands thereafter. She had everyone stunned with her rendition of I will always love you to win the talent contest. Kmisha is studying music and hopes to be biggie in music someday.
