Web voters, the wait is finally over! For all of you who voted on for your favourite Miss World participant the results are out. While officially there is still a day left for the Miss World pageant where the winner of the dazzling crown will be decided, we reveal the results of the web voting created by

The online voting, conducted on the website from November 26 till December 8, drew a total of 8560 votes. Out of these votes, we have picked the top five contestants who emerged frontrunners with the highest number of votes from all of you.

The clear favourite - Miss India Sindhura Gadde, from Andhra Pradesh is leading with 6236 votes. Miss Philippines is second in the race with 646 votes. Surfers have given 165 votes to Miss Albania, 120 to Miss Australia and 108 votes for Miss Iceland. The least number of votes have been given to representatives of Romania, Mauritius, Ghana, Chinese Taipei and Finland, who received one vote each.

Why Sindhura?
Sindhura's combination of good looks and intelligence seems to have clicked with web voters. "It is Sindhura's beauty, charming personality, attitude and intelligence that will make her a winner (at the pageant)," said 18-year-old Kaushik Wagh. Madhukar, 24, was bowled over by her attitude. He enthused, "She has the attitude of a go getter in life, ...a perfect mix of beauty and brains."

But these votes give just a partial picture of who could be the winner at the pageant on Saturday. Tomorrow is the D-day. Tomorrow is the day when many will exult with joy that their choice has won while many will be disappointed. All of you, who have voted enthusiastically for Sindhura, keep your fingers crossed and keep those prayers and good wishes going.

* PS: Please note that these results are not the official voting results. We will be sending our share of votes to the official body - Miss World Organisation - so that it forms part of the final set of votes.
