Experts say that Karina did well and assure us she will make the cut, and compete in Sunday’s final.

One of those to say give our Miss a good score is Osmel Sousa, director of Miss Venezuela. “He sat very quietly, showed us his book where he makes his annotations, and Costa Rica is ‘going to the dance’ as they say in Venezuelan slang,” writes La Nacion reporter, Alan Andino.

Osmel also revealed his list of the ‘Miss” he dislikes: Colombia, France, New Zealand, Slovakia, Spain, Russia, Argentina, Brazil, Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine and Venezuela.

About Costa Rica, Osmel said, “I don’t know. She’s not bad. I have to see her again to decide. So many!”

“She’s beautiful, has many attributes in her favour, she can do very well, but I have to tell you that there is much competition in the lineup,” said Magaly Febeles, director of the Miss Dominican Republic, who added that she sees it difficult for the Tica to take the crown.
