She is one of the most gorgeous faces in this year's competition of the universe. Karolina works as a makeup artist too. She was supposed to represent Slovakia at the 70th edition of Miss Universe but the coronation night was called off by the organisers, which is why Slovakia could not send any representative in the last edition.

She has managed to gather massive support from the Pinoy fans of Miss Universe as she has had a history of residing in the Philippines. Both her modelling and her acting career has been based in the island nation of the Philippines and that is why she knows how to speak their language too. She revealed on her Miss-U-Updates takeover however that her fluency in the language has dropped drastically and she blames this decline on the lack of practice and usage. She rated her Filipino to be somewhere between 5-6 on a scale of one to ten, ten being the best.

76. Swadika - THAILAND!
Anna Sueangam or the reigning Miss Universe Thailand is without a doubt the queen of inspiration as she spent the majority of her life living in a literal garbage dump. Both of her parents worked as garbage collectors in the main city of Bangkok in Thailand. Anna’s parents worked very hard and rarely had time to dedicate to taking care of her and so Anna had to stay with her Great Grandmother up until she graduated from college. Her great grandma was a buddhist nun. Her story is literally a barbie movie, from dump to royalty. Anna completed her bachelor’s degree in the field of liberal arts and science with a gold medal, or as called in her language - a first class honour, from the Kasetsart University. This proves that she always gives her one hundred percent to everything and therefore she is a very strong contender for the crown this year. Not new to the land of pageants, she was last seen at Miss Thailand 2020 pageant, vying to be Sireethorn Leearamwat’s national successor, with the dream to represent her nation at the next edition of Miss International. She had managed to bag a top 16 placement at the said pageant but could not advance further because when it’s universe or nothing, it’s universe or nothing. Wishing this queen nothing but the best from our side.
77. Please Give It Up For - THE BAHAMAS
Angel Cartwright completed her graduation in the field of business administration from the university of Bahamas and has completed her masters from the florida international university. Also not a new face in pageantry, Angel first tried to represent the Bahamas at the Miss World pageant in 2018 when she had participated in the Miss World Bahamas pageant. However, she finished in the top 6 of the pageant that was won by Brinique Gibson at the end of the finale. In the last edition of Miss Universe, the Bahamas earned their first ever placement with the representation of Chantel O’Brian, and with Angela they are hoping to take it a step further and maybe even take home their first Miss Universe crown.
