Meet the women tipped to become Miss World Australia – and their odds of winning the crown

The annual final of Miss World Australia will take place tonight and Sportsbet is tipping the crown will be heavily contested.

The Instagram accounts of the finalists are littered with similar advertisements and promotional posts, as well as a plethora of photos posing in the competition’s official sash.

In a bid to determine which beauty will emerge victorious, Sportsbet have released the odds for the top five, which include a Mauritius born globe trotter and a stereotype-smashing stunner from Western Sydney.

New South Wales native Emily Said is the $4 favourite to take the title, but Indigenous model Jenayah Elliott from northern Western Australia is close behind at $4.50.

FEMAIL delved into their backgrounds and social media accounts to find out what each girl has to offer.

Hailing from Wagga Wagga in New South Wales, $4 favourite Emily Isabel Said is a 22-year-old actress.

While the hot favourite has dabbled in the world of modelling, her twin sisters chose a very different career path and both work as veterinarians. 

The beautiful brunette likes to show her philanthropic side on social media, regularly posting about fundraising for Variety Children’s Charity.

ELICE CRAIG

Bringing true individuality to the contest is stunning finalist Elice Craig, self-titled as ‘the girl with two different eyes’.

Bullied throughout school and blind in her left eye, the remarkable 20-year-old from Western Sydney is on a mission to reshape social stereotypes.

Tipped for third place at $6, Ms Craig was born with a cyst which led to numerous surgeries as a child in attempts to fix it. 

‘Going blind in my left eye at the age of seven made me who I am today,’ she told the Daily Telegraph.

‘It became my purpose in life – I want to inspire other young women to be comfortable in their own skin.’

Ms Craig refuses to get a prosthetic eye because she believes flaws are what makes people beautiful.

A triple threat, she undertook dancing, singing and piano lessons from an early age.

Beautiful inside and out, Ms Craig works full time to support her ailing father and mother who acts as his carer.
