Miss Universe 2010 predictions: Venus Raj vs Fonthip Watcharatrakul?

The 59th edition of Miss Universe will take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States on August 23, 2010. A total of 83 women are vying for the title as the successor of Miss Universe 2009 Stefania Fernandez, 19, of Venezuela.

Based on the available videos, photos and information online, I and my colleague Erica Diaz Mendoza Lao scored the candidates separately then we combined our scores. Here are our predictions:
