I LOVE UNDERDOGS! they are SILENT KILLERS!! people should understand that NOT ALL the judges have idea who are "frontrunners" on forums! most of them don't have time reading pageant forums, they are very busy people! i'm sure they are also thinking why would they spend time visiting misso if they can judge all the girls "UP CLOSE" and on "CLOSE DOORS" compared to most forumers who are only judging through photos and videos.. yes only on photos and videos!! NOT IN PERSON... it is still different when you see a thing/ person IN REAL.. close to you, cos you will see them in details and from there it will be easier for them to do a final decision! and judges has their own mind too, even theres a hot picks they don't give a damn about that it's just for fun.. what they're goin to do is to judge what they see in "REAL" and not because people said she's like this and like that!
and about Janine, i don't think she's an underdog.. she is very consistent in hotpicks, and i don't think its a surprise for everyone when Janine enters Top 15, if u will review the Prediction list from most forumers before the MU '12 coronation night, most people put Philippines in their Top15 list.. so somehow thats expected! the real underdog in the pageant is Brazil, Australia, Turkey, Peru, India.... those girls are not on a radar! and one last thing, it doesn't always mean that when a girl received heavy bash from people means she has no chance of penetrating, it's everybodys ballgame!
