Philippines is Now the No. 1 Beauty Pageant Country in the World, Venezuela Drops to 2nd Place


Global Beauties–the website that ranks every country annually based on their performances in 5 major international beauty pageants like Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International, Miss Supranational, and Miss Grand International–announced that Philippines finally ends Venezuela’s reign as the world’s beauty powerhouse.

This is despite the fact that PH bet Catriona Gray, believed by many as the deserving winner of Miss World 2016, did not even place in the Top 3 of the said pageant.

In 2016, Philippines won in Miss International and placed very well in the other 4 pageants: 1st runner-up in Miss Grand International, Top 6 in Miss Universe, Top 5 in Miss World, and semi-finalist in Miss Supranational.

Here are the current Top 20 and their scores (sum of points from the 5 major beauty pageants worldwide):

1. Philippines – 106.02
2. Venezuela – 100.00
3. USA – 77.52
4. Mexico – 72.80
5. Puerto Rico – 70.32
6. Brazil – 67.00
7. Colombia – 64.10
8. Australia – 63.52
9. Thailand – 57.18
10. India – 53.72
11. Spain – 52.20
12. Dominican Republic – 50.80
13. Indonesia – 45.82
14. France – 44.42
15. Russia – 42.10
16. Ukraine – 40.30
17. Japan – 39.50
18. China – 38.88
19. South Africa – 38.80
20. Poland – 37.04

Miss Earth was originally part of the point system but the website removed the PH-conceptualized pageant because of issues like bias results favoring the Philippine contestant (PH by the way won back-to-back in 2014 and 2015 when Jamie Herell and Angelia Ong were crowned respectively.)
