Proof positive that their respective countries took Miss Earth 2013 seriously are the newspaper clippings above that rejoiced in print the Top 4 placements of the Venezuelan, Austrian and Thai representatives. In particular, the news reports on Alyz Henrich were big and bold while that of Katia Wagner’s merited a much-heralded front page spot.
I’m quite happy with these ladies becoming our Elemental Queens for 2013. You might ask where those of Catharina Choi’s are. Well, it could be one of two things: either I missed it or the Korean Press opted not to play it up because – if memory serves me right – the Korean-Brazilian was only the 3rd choice (being just one of the ‘lowly’ runners-up in the national pageant) to wear the sash of Korea after the two higher placers begged off to take the duties for personal reasons.
Anyways, kudos again to these Earth beauties! 🙂
