  1. ano toh? di naman masyadong prominent tong pageant na to unlike miss universe and miss world which are really well-established beauty pageant organizations!

  2. I don’t know why they won’t allow Cuba and Pakistan to join just because the representative were selected in different country. Miss Earth organization should have known that beauty pageant that will held in Pakistan for example could cause riots because of their culture and religion.

    Ok lang un no.6 mas unique ung korona ng Miss Earth., kc its made of difference gems of any participation nation in the Miss Earth pageant.,diba talagang kakaiba., at para sakin mas maganda ang design ng kororna ng Miss Earth kaysa sa MU.,

  7. Miss universe 2008 was held in vietnam and the show was fantastic. Good luck sa lahat ng contestants. Mas maraming delegates ang miss earth ngaun compare to Miss U.
    Sayang nga lang at recycled lang ung corona nila (i mean recycled gems) unlike Miss U na diamonds talaga. Anyways, Go green!!!!!!!
