Call me stupid, but I just found out there is yet another international beauty pageant besides Miss Universe and Miss World: Miss Earth.

Miss Earth is an annual international beauty pageant founded in the year 2001 by Carousel Productions Inc. of the Philippines. Its organizer created the pageant after losing the rights to continue producing for the Miss Asia-Pacific pageant. In its five-year run, Miss Earth has become the third largest beauty pageant in the planet, after the Miss World and Miss Universe contests.The delegates and winners give meaning and relevance to this beauty competition by promoting worthwhile environmental causes and getting actively involved in caring for and the preservation of Mother Earth. In addition to its environmental objectives, the winner of Miss Earth is involved with international environmental projects. During pageant month (2005), Carousel brings the Miss Earth delegates to selected tourism destinations, like Fort Ilocandia, Intramuros, Bohol, and Boracay in the Philippines to showcase and promote the same to the pageant’s international viewers. The delegates also take part in treeplanting ceremonies, environmental and cultural immersion programs, sponsor visits and tours, and even a Survivor-like competition.

  1. I think miss china, miss philippines and miss canada, who is a philipina by the way are all pretty nice. Oh yeah, and miss korea too.

  2. Dear darklighter1, thanirz

    At first, I’m sorry to reply too late.
    I just looked your comments.
    It is true that sung-hi was popular in korea in the mid nineteens.

    But nowdays, she never appears to
    korean. And her movie doesn’t release in
    korea too. That’s the reason that many
    korean have forgot about her.

    And.. You asked me that which model
    is popular in korea.

    Firstly, Leah dizon is quite popular. I
    think she is the most popular foreigne sexy model in korea.
    Actually, there is no sexy model in korea
    I mean, korea doesn’t have sexy model or porno star. Only fashion model or racing model. Japan has so many gravia models or AV(Adult movie) models, but korea doesn’t have.

    I already have told you that I’m not good at english.
    I don’t know that my comment is correct in english grammar.

  3. He wait so the means the person was basically kicked out of one pagent, started another that has become more popular than the one they were kicked out of! Super, way to stick it to them!
