You will get to understand the clamor why our Malaysian neighbors are rooting for Samantha Katie James, Malaysia's bet for Miss Universe 2017. The 22 year-old actress and model has the beauty and the potentials to nab a spot in the Miss Universe finals and finally put an end to the drought of Malaysia's seemingly endless decades of non-placement in the world's most celebrated beauty derby. 

Samantha is 5'7'' tall and is of mixed ethnicity. She is of Chinese-Brazilian descent and can speak English and Malay fluently with a bit of Mandarin and Tamil. Based from her interviews, Samantha is pretty articulate and well-spoken, which could be her edge in cementing her status as a formidable contender for the Miss Universe crown. 

It's been 47 years since the last Malaysian delegate placed in the finals, courtesy of Josephine Lena Wong Jaw Leng who managed to crack through the Top 15 in 1970. Deborah Priya Henry came strong during the 2011 edition but her journey for the crown ended when she failed to clinch a semi-final placement.

Your blogger wishes Samantha the best of luck in her Miss Universe journey.
