Former winner Ximena Navarrete reveals her favorites for 69th Miss Universe

Former Miss Universe Ximena Navarrete of Mexico has revealed her favorites for the 69th Miss Universe competition.

In a post on social media, she shared her bikini photo taken by Albanian-born photographer Fadil Berisha her Top 21 favorites in the caption.

The beauty queen-turned-actress and model, who was crowned Miss Universe 2010 in Las Vegas, reminded everyone to never take her list of favorites personally because it's just her opinion and that "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder."

"The Miss Universe organization always looks for a complete woman in every way and although it is a beauty contest, the most beautiful is always carried in the soul and that is something that the jury is also in charge of looking for in all the candidates, if you are as observant as I am, you will notice that the beauty of the soul in some cases also penetrates the photos and videos" she added.

On top of her list is her fellow Mexican Andrea Meza whom she wished well and described as someone "who undoubtedly prepared herself to achieve everything she sets out to do."

South Africa, Peru, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Thailand, Romania, Curacao, Philippines, USA, Brazil, Chile, Australia, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Czech Republic, India, France, Russia, Bolivia, and Argentina were the rest of her favorites.

"I honestly believe that this year is a year with a lot of competition and a lot of beauty in every way. Success to all! The crown always finds the place where it needs to be," she said.

The 69th Miss Universe pageant will air live from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida on Sunday, May 16 at 8 p.m. ET.
