Miss Earth 2017, the third biggest international beauty competition on the planet will be held in Manila, Philippines.
This was announced by the Miss Earth Organization and Carousel Productions via their official social media accounts. The environmental-themed beauty Pageant will be back in the Philippines after staging what could be its most successful edition last year.
Miss Earth 2017 finals will be staged at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Philippines. The pageant will welcome approximately 90 candidates all vying to succeed Katherine Espin, Miss Earth 2016. The reigning Miss Earth was crowned in the very same venue last year.
The delegates for Miss Earth 2017 will start arriving on October 8. The finals night is scheduled on November 4, after almost a month of preliminary activities, sub-contests, environmental forums, and fun bonding activities.
In the entire 16 years of Miss Earth’s existence, the pageant was only held outside of the Philippines twice. In 2010, the pageant went to Vietnam, where Nicole Faria won the crown. In 2015, the pageant went to Europe for the first time. Angelia Ong of the Philippines won the title in the imperial city of Vienna in Austria.
Miss Earth has grown into the third biggest competition in the planet of its kind. For 16 years, the pageant has weathered several controversies and accusations. But the organization has remained steadfast to its commitment to using the beauty pageant platform to a greater good.
Many Miss Earth queens have gone into successful endeavors after their reign. And many more candidates have committed themselves to the causes of Miss Earth after their respective reigns as well.
