Beauty resides in the 'New World' according to Sportsbook.com


NEW YORK, NY, May 24 /PRNewswire/ - Sportsbook.com has released odds on who will win the Miss Universe competition, which will be televised live by NBC on May 30 from Bangkok, Thailand. Eight of the top ten favorites according to odds makers come from the Caribbean and the Americas, led by Renata Sone from the Dominican Republic and Cynthia Olavarria from Puerto Rico, both listed at 12-1. The US delegate, Chelsea Cooley from Charlotte, North Carolina, is a 25-1 favorite.
"The Miss Universe contest has been around for more than 50 years and continues to be one of the most watched television programs around the world. With Donald Trump getting on board the interest in the United States is going to be even greater this year," says Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director, Sportsbook.com. "This is the perfect event for Sportsbook.com fans to wager on - it's exciting, unpredictable and it sure is a lot of fun to watch."

Other favorites for the crown include the representatives from Canada - Toronto's Natalie Glebova - South Africa and Venezuela all listed at 18-1, Colombia, Peru and Norway at 20-1 and Mexico at 25-1. Australia's delegate, home to reigning Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins, is at 60-1 while the hometown favorite from Thailand is listed at 40-1. The least likely winner, according to odds makers is Miss Angola with odds at 250-1.

Aside from offering odds on the eventual winner, Sportsbook.com has another interest in this year's competition. Miss Costa Rica, Johanna Fernandez, is a former employee of the online sportsbook and casino.

"We currently have her at 50-1 to win the crown, but in our hearts of course she's our favorite," added Czajkowski.

There are 81 contestants battling for the Miss Universe 2005 crown. There have been winners from 31 different countries since the event was first held in 1952. Only four nations have produced more than two Miss Universe winners - the United States (7), Puerto Rico (4), Venezuela (4) and Sweden (3). The last Miss Universe from the United States was Brooke Antoinette Mahealani Lee in 1997.


Below are odds on all 81 contestants. For more information, please visit

just gimme ur money - I'll handle it for ya

parlay it into something outta nothing or nothing from something I forget which but trust me..it'll be OK

(and no actually it's not a parlay, it's a straight bet, unless you want to pick the 1,2,3 exploited places wink as one combo bet, then that would be a parlay of sorts.)
