BANGKOK: Anntonia Porsild has been crowned Miss Supranational 2019 on December 6, beating contestants from 77 countries and becoming the first Thai to be awarded the honour.

Yana Haenisch from Namibia, Jesica Fitriana from Indonesia, Janick Maceta del Castillo from Peru and Gabriela De La Cruz from Venezuela were named the first, second, third and fourth runners-
up respectively. Porsild, who is half-Danish and half-Thai, was a contestant on the first season of the television show The Face Thailand in 2014/15.


She is currently studying advertising and public relations at Stamford International University.
 

Miss Supranational is one of five international beauty contests at the grand slam level.

The first competition was held in 2009 in the Polish city of Plock.

Other Thai contestants who have done well in the contest are Nanthawan Wannachutha and Parapadsorn Vorrasirinda, named the first runners-up in 2012 and 2014.

Porsild’s victory was the second for Thailand this year after Sireethorn Leearamwat took home the Miss International 2019 crown late last month.

Thais expect Paweensuda Drouin to win the Miss Universe 2019 contest, which is being held on Monday. — The Nation/ANN
