Trailing, Chappell is delegate number five, 18-year-old Ayana Whitehead who is sponsored by Rainbow Fashions. From the inception, Whitehead was optimistic and confident that she will be crowned Miss Guyana Universe 2013.
However, delegate number two Kenwah Cho Quan Yi, a graduate from the University of Guyana with a degree in Economic and a diploma in Public Communications is close behind.
Katherina Roshana who is sponsored under the Limacol brand of the NEW GPC INC is also a top contender in the quest and topping off the top five prediction is delegate number four Shyon Hoppie, who is sponsored by Shalinsky and Company.
However, with the intelligence segment out of the way, the delegates will be concentrating on pageant night.
