The 2013 Miss Universe beauty pageant is nearing its end and with that the competition to win the coveted crown is getting intense.

After the preliminary competition, which was held on 5 November, some of the leading contestants faded out, while there were quite a few who managed to impress the judges and bookies are now betting high on them.

Among them is Miss India Manasi Moghe who has emerged as one of the hot favourites, after the swimming and evening gown rounds.

Miss India has been grabbing attention at the 62nd edition of the Miss Universe pageant. Global Beauties, an international pageant portal, has predicted that Manasi will enter the top 15, according to The Times of India.

The international pageant portal has also named her as the Best Face of Asia and Best Personality of Asia.

Missosology, a beauty pageant site, has named Manasi in their 'Miss Universe 2013 18th Hot Picks' list.

The other favourite contestants, according to Missosology, include Miss Philippines, Miss Great Britain, Miss Ukraine, Miss USA, Miss France, Miss Venezula, Miss Poland, Miss Brazil, Miss Spain, Miss Costa Rica, Miss Australia, Miss Italy, Miss Ecuador and Miss Czech Republic.

From the 86 contestants, a top five will be selected as finalists. Meanwhile, the contestants who receive the highest votes will get the chance to directly enter the semi-final round, along with other five contestants.
