1st Austrians, French people, Koreans, Somalis
2nd Chinese people, Germans, Iranians, South Africans
3rd Brits, Pakistanis
4th Indians, Israelis, Mexicans, People, Polish people
5th Americans, Brazillians, Japanese people
6th Turkish people, Vietnamese people
7th Canadians, Nigerians
10th Filipinos
not Australians, Egyptians, Ethiopians, Italians, Kenyans, Russians
