MANILA, Philippines — Sophia Ng, a psychological therapist from Hong Kong, bested 40 other international delegates for the Miss Global 2018 crown in the pageant’s sixth edition.

The pageant staged its coronation ceremonies at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila in Pasay City on Monday night. The program ended past midnight on Tuesday.

This is the third edition of the global tilt to be held in the Philippines. It was previously hosted here in 2015 and 2016.

Pauline Sofia Laping, chief executive officer of the Miss Global Philippines organization, has just recently signed an agreement with the global team, which officially welcomed her to the international organizing committee.

While she said that her new role would make her even busier, “my commitment to the Miss Global Philippines family will stay the same. I will continue to make it better even if I have a bigger responsibility now,” she told the Inquirer.

She also revealed that the 2018 edition was moved to February 2019 because of internal issues regarding the ownership of the global pageant that needed to be resolved.

A person she declined to identify hacked the international organization’s online portals and claimed ownership of the global tilt.

After the issue was settled, the international organizers reached out to their global partners and were able to bring over 40 contestants to the 2018 competition.

Barbara Vitorelli, the 2017 winner from Brazil, relinquished her title to Ng.

Joining Ng in the winners’ circle were first runner-up Amber Bernachi of Canada, second runner-up Tamila Khodjaeva of Uzbekistan, third runner-up Seydina Allen of Haiti, and fourth runner-up Pamela Lee Urbina of the United States.

End Of The Year Review - Pageantry In 2021

  And the winner is... Miss Quasi-Normal. Runners-up include Miss Apartheid Universe and Miss Covid World.         2021 pageantry was characterized by a gradual return to normalcy as pageant competitions – which had been cancelled or postponed in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic – succeeded in staging physical productions while paying close attention to universal safety guidelines. Even major events like the Tokyo Summer Olympics, which was cancelled in 2020, successfully took place in 2021. Miss Universe and Miss Grand International held two editions (one each for 2020 and 2021), The Miss World finals was postponed for March 2022 after several contestants had tested positive for COVID-19 in Puerto Rico which hosts the pageant. The year was also a milestone for Miss Universe and Miss World’s 70th anniversary and Miss America’s 100th anniversary.
