Again, all scores are averaged and the Top 3 contestants move on to the Final Look,” the MUO said.
In the Final Look stage, the judges and home viewers will rank, instead of score, the Final 3 contestants based on their overall performance on who they think should be crowned Miss Universe.
Who among the 86 contestants will be part of the Top 12, Top 9, Top 6, Top 3 and who will be named winner of Miss Universe 2016?
