USA Wins First Miss Earth Crown

 



MANILA (UPDATE) - Lindsey Coffey from the USA was in tears after being named Miss Earth 2020 in a virtual coronation ceremony held Sunday morning, Manila time.

Roxanne Baeyens from the Philippines was named Miss Earth Water 2020, while Michala Rubinstein from Denmark was named Miss Earth Fire 2020, and Stephany Zreik from Venezuela as Miss Earth Air.

Coffey, 28, was in initial disbelief after learning about the results.

“That is one of the best surprises I have ever received in my life. I am so shocked right now,” she said.

“Honestly, I did not even think that I had enough to really do this because I am so brand new to all of this. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But from the very beginning, the stars seemed to have aligned. Even though I had some doubts, all my supporters, my team knew I was on the right track. To actually have this come true, it’s pretty remarkable."

Baeyens of the Philippines said she is grateful for the entire experience and to the Miss Earth Organization for letting them speak up about their environmental advocacies.

“I can’t wait for me and my ecosisters to have an amazing journey. Thank you for the love, and always spread love for Mother Earth,” she said.

Saying the Miss Earth 2020 win means so much to her, Coffey assured everyone she will pour her heart and soul into the new journey she’s about to embark on.

Based on her profile on the Miss Earth website, Coffey’s main advocacy is turning to ecological restoration, contour farming, rainwater harvesting, and desalination in order to combat the water pollution crisis on Earth.

Coffey succeeded Nellys Pimentel, the first-ever Puerto Rican winner of the Miss Earth pageant.

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.
