Melissa Gurgel: In The Hunt For Brazil's Top 5, 4th Consecutive Winning Streak


                                               Miss Universe Brazil 2014 Melissa Gurgel

While the Philippines is fiercely poise in achieving its successive 5-Year Top 5 honors in the world's most prestigious beauty contest,Brazil is also gunning its 4th uninterrupted Top 5 win.

Twenty-years old Brazilian model and the reigning Miss Brazil 2014 Melissa Gurgel is gunning for a four-year consecutive Top 5 placement in Miss Universe. Would she able to achieve what her predecessors have attained in the last three years? Priscila Machado (Miss Universe 2011 SecondRunner-Up), Gabriela Markus (Miss Universe 2012 Fourth Runner-Up), and Jakelyne Oliveira (Miss Universe 2013 Fourth Runner-Up) have been victorious in continuing their country's winning streak in the magic circle.

Just like the Philippines, Brazil is yet to win its third Miss Universe crown. Their last triump to date was still four decades ago when Martha Maria Vasconcellos won the most coveted title in 1968. Iêda Maria Britto Vargas was their very first titleholder who clinched the top plum in 1963!

Will the 5'6" gorgeous Melissa be capable of rising up for the challenge? What do you think are her chances? Here is Brazil's contender captured through the masterful lenses of brilliant photographer Cassiano Grandi.
