The stage is set for the coronation night of the annual Miss Earth pageant on Tuesday, which will be held in a physical setting for the first time since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
While the Manila-based global tilt mounted online pageants in the last two years because of the pandemic, this year’s event will be held at the Cove Manila Pool Club of Okada Manila, where one of the 86 delegates from different countries will be crowned queen in a pageant that advocates “environment awareness, conservation, and social responsibility.”
This will be the 22nd edition of the annual international competition, dubbed “Beauties for a Cause,” and is organized by Carousel Productions.

The program will be beamed live to international audiences served by Globovision in Latin America and the Caribbean, and will be seen online worldwide through the pageant’s official Kumu account, and official Facebook page and YouTube channel.
The Philippines’ candidate for this pageant is Jenny Ramp, who hails from Tarlac and who was an early favorite, according to several global pageant observers.
The new queen will inherit the title from Destiny Wagner, the first woman from Belize to capture a major international crown, who won in a virtual competition conducted in 2021.
Several other “elemental queens” will also be crowned at the culmination of the competition, Miss Earth Air, Miss Earth Water, and Miss Earth Fire.
To date, four Filipino women have received the title—Karla Henry in 2008, Jamie Herrell in 2014, Angelia Ong in 2015, and Karen Ibasco in 2017.
This makes the Philippines the most successful country in the Miss Earth pageant. The country also has an impressive roster of elemental queens aside from the four top winners. EDV
