Just as I predicted to take the Miss Earth 2016 all the way, Katherine Espin of Ecuador held on to the crown as it was already hers to lose in my opinion. This is her country’s second international pageant victory for 2016 after Miss Global 2016 also here in Manila last month.
It was an all-Latina elemental court. Michelle Gomez of Colombia was named Miss Air with Stephanie de Zorzi of Venezuela. Bruna Zanardo of Brazil completed the court as Miss Fire.
The four other girls in the Top 8 are Cloie Syquia Skarne of Sweden, Corrin Stellakis of USA, Aleksandra Cherepanova of Russiq and Nguyen Thi Le Nam Em of Vietnam.
Congratulations to all the winners!
