Pageants are like sports: in order to succeed the contestants have to train, both physically and mentally. Hence, it’s only natural that betting on pageants is slowly but surely becoming a thing. At the same time, it’s relatively hard to find odds for these events, since pageant betting is still categorized as a novelty. If you appreciate Scandinavian beauty and you follow pageants, this is your lucky month. Unibet Sportsbook has released the best Miss Finland 2017 odds and your only job is to choose your winner.
One of the strongest contenders for the title is Adriana Gerxhalija (9/2), a 21 year-old model, who truly understands the “importance of being the true you.” Michaela Söderholm (3/1) is also among the bookie’s favorites, but Essi Unkuri (9/4) is the ultimate frontrunner at the moment. A bit lower on the list you’ll find Erika Maenpaa, a typical Scandinavian beauty, with blond hair and blue eyes.

At pageants, everything is possible. In 2017, pageants in Finland were highly publicized for all the wrong reasons. After the crowning of Miss Helsinki – Sephora Iklaba who was born in Nigeria – racist comments flooded Facebook. “Political correctness won. She’s damn ugly and not even from Finland,” complained a commenter. “It’s not that she’s black, it’s that she’s the least beautiful of all the entrants,” put another comment. As the saying goes, beauty is subjective. Take a look at Sephora on the picture below, and decide for yourself.
