The competition took place in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana a tropical paradise turned in to the ultimate battle ground with the participation of, some of the most beautiful, outstanding and well rounded women on the planet, each representing their countries. Diana Kubasova representing Latvia won the competition.

How did Diana Kubasova accomplish this? and is it really that difficult?

In nowadays pop culture we normally see our favorite models and actresses depicted in music videos and promotional campaigns, performing Power Woman activities that inspire us; but Miss Multiverse is the real deal, its not a promotional stunt, these contestants are the stuff that legends are made of. The challenges are claimed to be the hardest ever seen in beauty competitions.

Diana Kubasova Miss Multiverse 2018, known for Dancing with the stars, has already participated in many pageants and modeling shows. Kubasova comes across in her social media as the sophisticated and stylish woman. Not as a muscular Olympic medalist. Considering this we ask even more…

How did she win? and again… is the Miss Multiverse competition really that difficult?

Lets begin by understanding the origin and history of Miss Multiverse. The first traces of this competition dates back to the official coverage by Missosology in 2013 making it the first elimination style reality TV format in pageantry.

The success of this program, gave rise to a new trend in beauty pageants around the world. Attempting to create a similar reality show, pageants began filming their activities documentary style, depicting what happens behind the scenes.


This inside look in to many pageant documentaries, revealed that no other competition in the world has reached the level and complexity of Miss Multiverse. The challenges faced by Diana Kubasova to win the crown remain unrivaled in the beauty industry until this day.

As reported by the New York Post – PageSix : In 2015 The Miss Multiverse VS Miss Universe litigation initiated by Donald Trump, forced the organizers of the show to think outside of the box. The key strategy of Miss Multiverse CEO Linda Grandia to win the trademark court battle, was to redesign Miss Multiverse, and make it a complete different format, to counter the claims, that Miss Multiverse was very similar to the Miss Universe format.

The scoring system of the competition was one of the first noteworthy changes in the format, unique to Miss Multiverse. The organizers consulted the creators of the award winning TV show Judge Judy to find unique and fair ways to judge the contestants. As result, producers created a new scoring system with elements of the American action-adventure movie Divergent, making it the most transparent scoring system in pageantry.

Divergent Score Board

The point based system unlocks the next achievements leading contestants to the next adventurous challenges. This new format required no expert judges opinion, and removed all potential biases from the competition. As seen in the movie Divergent, participants with low performance scores don’t make the cut and risk being eliminated.

Elimination is not guaranteed during the program. If all contestants scores remain above the line, then all contestants continue the journey towards the next adventures.

Miss Multiverse Ranking System

Contestants bellow the line are in constant risk of elimination, the ones above the line are in the safe zone. The primary goal of the contestants, is to remain above the line, during the initial phase of the contest. Their first objective is to reach top 10 status in order to have a real shot at winning the crown.

Miss Latvia reaches Top 10 Status

Reaching top 10 status is the equivalence of a PHD level title in pageantry. Contestants most be industry veterans already holding several previous titles under their belt, in addition to university level education, proven high IQ and professional track record. To reach Top 10 they have to achieve high scores in tests that will challenge those capabilities. They literally have to walk the talk. The ones who don’t make it return home.

This filtering process was designed to find the best of the best: and there is a reason behind this process; mostly because a novice would not withstand the Top 10 level challenges and the degree of strategic thinking, experience and leadership of rival contestants.

The challenges and adventures are re-designed each year making it difficult for contestants to track or prepare a strategy before arrival. Producers seek assistance from doctors in fields of; behavioral science, military professionals and fitness experts among others, to design the psychological mind games and challenges that continuously evolve in complexity and intensity trough the years.

In episodes of the programs, it may appear at first sight, as if physical challenges are the tests with high importance. Previous seasons of Miss Multiverse had Olympic medal winners join the competition and they did not win. This proves that this is not an athletic oriented competition. These physical activities do however, make an exiting show for viewers compared to IQ tests that are not as entertaining to sit and watch.

Beauty does play a part in the competition, the contestants are picture perfect gorgeous even more so with no make up during the challenges. We however see contestants of previous season with flawless beauty that have not won and some did not reach top 10. This demonstrates that physical appearance does not get you the crown.

In all reality this is more of a social and mental game where the overall balanced contestant who demonstrates to be the most multifaceted woman becomes the winner.

This brings us back to Diana Kubasova.

One of the chief producers commented that Kubasovas intellect and intuition resembles that of a high level diplomat combined with the strategic thinking of an FBI or CIA agent. He also stated that Kubasova is one of the most clever minds he has ever encountered.

Diana Kubasova was able to successfully solve the mind-bending puzzles and cracked the philosophy behind the code.

This still does not explain her success in the physical challenges.
The Last Woman Standing

This endurance challenge literally does NOT end until the last woman is standing. This intensive exercise lasts six hours, full beat, under the blistering sun. Contestants are able to quit and tap out at any time until… the last woman remains standing. Diana Kubasova was that woman.

Challenges that reveal Intellect, self control, balance and substance provide the highest scores in the competition. The IQ test, business challenges and political debates to name a few are by far not so simple. Traditional pageant themes usually revolve around a specific topic, this can be global worming, politics, speaking against war and so on. Contestants in traditional pageants have months to prepare, and rehearse their speech for a public. But this approach does not always resemble the real world.

The reality of the competitive landscape in business and politics; means that, Entrepreneurs are in constant pressure and time constraints. And real Politicians are in constant fire and scrutiny.

This is why Miss Multiverse contestants have no clue of the topics beforehand, they are placed in a debate with just hours to prepare, this is the organizations means to test the contestants world knowledge and ability to perform complex research, find realistic, efficient solutions and work as a team with limited time and under pressure.
