Out of the 94 women vying for the Miss Universe 2018 crown, 30 are representing countries from the European continent excluding the Caribbean countries. Here is the list:

  1. Trejsi Sejdini (Albania)
  2. Eliza Muradyan (Armenia)
  3. Zoé Brunet (Belgium)
  4. Gabriela Topalova (Bulgaria)
  5. Mia Pojatina (Croatia)
  6. Lea Steflickova (Czech Republic)
  7. Helena Heuser (Denmark)
  8. Alina Voronkova (Finland)
  9. Eva Colas (France)
  10. Lara Yan (Georgia)
  11. Celine Willers (Germany)
  12. Dee-Ann Kentish-Rogers (Great Britain)
  13. Ioanna Bella (Greece)
  14. Enikő Kecskés (Hungary)
  15. Katrin Lea Elenudottir (Iceland)
  16. Grainne Gallanagh (Ireland)
  17. Erica De Matteis (Italy)
  18. Zana Berisha (Kosovo)
  19. Francesca Mifsud (Malta)
  20. Rahima Ayla Dirkse (Netherlands)
  21. Susanne Guttorm (Norway)
  22. Magdalena Swat (Poland)
  23. Filipa Barroso (Portugal)
  24. Yulia Polyachikhina (Russia)
  25. Barbora Hanova (Slovakia)
  26. Angela Ponce (Spain)
  27. Emma Strandberg (Sweden)
  28. Jastina Doreen Riederer (Switzerland)
  29. Tara De Vries (Turkey)
  30. Karina Zhosan (Ukraine)

Among the strongest Miss Universe 2018 candidates from Europe are Sejdini, Muradyan and Ponce. I predict that the respective representatives of Albania, Armenia and Spain will make it to the Top 20.

But if Sejdini wins, she will become the first Miss Universe from Albania. All  previous representatives of the country did not place in the beauty pageant expect Hasna Xhukici and Angela Martini, who made it to the Top 15 in 2009 and to the Top 10 in 2010, respectively.

On the other hand, Muradyan is the first ever Miss Universe Armenia. This makes her the very first candidate to represent Armenia in Miss Universe.

Ponce is also making history as the first ever trans woman to compete in Miss Universe in the international level. If she wins, she will become the second Miss Universe from Spain following Amparo Munoz, who was crowned in 1974.

Miss Universe started in 1952 with Armi Kuusela of Finland as the inaugural winner. Currently, the United States is the country with the most wins in the beauty pageant with eight crowns followed by Venezuela and Puerto Rico with seven and five crowns, respectively.

On December 17, 2018, Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa will crown her successor at Impact, Muang Thong Thani in Bangkok, Thailand. Meanwhile, check how the African beauties represented their respective countries in the Miss Universe 2018 national costume show here:
