Miss Earth 2014 – Jamie Herrel
via Miss Earth Pageant FB Page
Congratulations are in order for the newly crowned Miss Earth 2014! The host delegate and the ultimate earth warrior Jamie Herrel of the Philippines was adjudged the fairest last night at the UP Diliman Theather in Quezon City amongst 85 earth warriors across the globe vying for the crown won last year by Alyz Henrich of Venezuela.

Completing the elemental queens are: Miss USA Andrea Neu as Miss Air, Miss Venezuela Maira Alexandra Rodriguez as Miss Water and Miss Russia Anastasia Krysova as Miss Fire.
I won’t even give much thought about the grousing calls from other netizens about home court advantage and such because things like winning in your home turf happens all the time and since Jamie clearly made an impressive show last night, I won’t take the credit from the girl!
Congratulations Jamie Herrell! Mabuhay Ka!

Falcon native Alyz Henrich was crowned the new Miss Earth at the Versailles Palace in the Philippines last December 7. Henrich was touted to be the one to beat from the onset of the competition while Katia Wagner of Austria, Punika Kulsoontornrut, Catharina Choi of Korea were hailed as her elemental queens (Air, Water and Fire repectively.)
Meanwhile, local bet Angelee delos Reyes may have been deprived of a crown but she fought gracefully and I really thought that she’s the biggest threat to Alyz. She was amazing nonetheless and making it into the top 8 is a great feat already with over 88 girls competing.
The win of Venezuela signify a double victory for the pageant powerhouse as Gabriela Isler also won the Miss Universe title this year.
Gold – Alyz Henrich of Venezuela
Deemed as one of the frontrunners this edition, Alyz could very well give Venezuela a back to back Big Four crowning this year after Gabriela Isler clinched the Miss Universe title last month and we’re not even through with Miss International.
Sliver – Shahi Thakuri of Nepal
After Nepal’s strong showing during the Miss World in September this year, they are now fielding this beautiful girl with just the right curves and charisma to clinch a title for her country.
Bronze – Angelee Delos Reyes of the Philippines
Created by Hanz Coquilla, Angelee carried this gown like a queen! It’s very similar to what she wore during the national pageant and I’m hoping that she’d wear a different one come finals night.

The Miss Earth Finals Night will be telecast live on December 7 at 8:00 PM (MNL) time on StarWorld.
