The 2008 Miss Universe results were coming in. Would there be a huge payout for gamblers worldwide? When the final 15 were announced, a few of the favorites were among those still in. Some of the big favorites were not, however. Miss Puerto Rico had the second shortest odds at  SBG Global  paying around 8 to 1 odds. Likewise, Miss Panama, Miss Belgium and Miss India were other big favorites who failed to make the initial cut.

And then there were some big underdogs who slipped in. Among them: Miss Italy at 33/1 odds; Miss Vietnam at 22/1 odds; Miss South Africa at 18/1 odds; Miss Australia at 22/1 odds; Miss Russia at 33/1 odds; Miss Spain at 33/1 odds; Miss Hungary at a huge 66/1 odds; Miss Italy at 33/1 odds and Miss Japan - a huge 80/1 long shot. Miss Japan won last year as a massive dog.

The 7/1 favorite, Miss Venezuela, was selected. That nation regularly has its representative among the top selections as does The USA (9 to 1 odds) and Mexico (8 to 1 odds, but opened at 12 to 1). Both Miss USA and Miss Mexico were selected among the 15 finalists.

Kosovo at 20/1 odds; Dominican Republic (selected by Gambling911.com's Jenny Woo) was at 18 to 1 odds. Both made it into the final 15. Other favorites: Miss Colombia (11 to 1 odds) and Czech Republic (11 to 1 odds) made it in. Results were being updated at Gambling911.com throughout the rest of the evening.

Ultimately, the top 10 were announced including Kosovo; Australia; Spain; Mexico; Colombia; USA; Dominican Republic; Russia; Italy; Venezuela.
