MANILA, Philippines – The Miss Earth 2023 coronation happens tonight at Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center in Vietnam.
This year, the Philippines will be represented by pageant veteran and medical laboratory scientist Yllana Marie Aduana in the competition. She will attempt to sustain the country’s status as the most successful nation in the contest by being the fifth Filipina to capture the title, following Karla Henry, Jamie Herrell, Angelia Ong, and Karen Ibasco.
Miss Philippines Earth 2007 Jeanne Harn introduced this year’s judges namely: Mika Vanhanen, Jesson Capuchino, Jay Barbo, Arvin Cabachete, Lisa Song Sutton and Mel Caparas.
The delegates from different countries also participated in various environmental seminars, tree-planting activities, and community service projects, to showcase their commitment to Miss Earth’s advocacy.
This year’s Miss Bikini award was bagged by the Philippines and was hoping to get the most coveted title, the Miss Earth 2023 crown.
It happened this month, where Vietnamese organizers revealed that the coronation date would be on December 16. The decision to change the date and venue was motivated by the desire to accommodate a larger audience. Vietnam, which last hosted the annual beauty competition 13 years ago in 2010, is set to be the venue for the event.
Miss Earth is recognized as one of the prominent international beauty pageants globally. It is owned and managed by Carousel Productions, a Manila-based organization, with Lorraine Schuck, a former beauty queen, serving as the executive vice president.
The coronation will be streamed via Miss Earth’s official page.
