Catharina Choi Nunes is the new Miss Mundo Brasil 2015
Catharina Choi Nunes is one fortunate beauty queen. After placing 1st Runner-Up during the finals of Miss Mundo Brasil 2015, she thought that was it, end of story. But when the organizers discovered that the proclaimed winner Ana Luisa Castro was married with one child, she was immediately stripped of the title. And the crown was transferred to the Brazilian-Korean’s head (left photo
) without any fuss.
So now, Catharina will be Sanya-bound for Miss World 2015 come December. After conquering Miss Earth last 2013 and clinching Miss Fire, she will now go for the bigger prize in global pageantry. Boa sorte! 😀

Korea's Earth Warrior: Catharina Choi Nunes
A Korean-Brazilian for ME2013
Remember my first feature on the beautiful Catharina Choi (Songee) Nunes who vied for Miss Korea 2013 but snatched a mere runner-up position? Well, she is considerably slimmer now. And as Miss Earth Korea 2013, she will take part in Miss Earth 2013 here in Manila.
The Korean-Brazilian beauty was looking at representing the Land of the Morning Calm in an international beauty pageant, preferably Miss Universe. But since she was outlasted by the pure locals for that honor, she was still given the opportunity to wear the country’s sash abroad. With her interesting mix, I’m hoping that there will at least be a decent placement for Korea in the environmental beauty competition. 😉
Catharina Choi Nunes (aka Choi Song-e) is the first Korean-Brazilian delegate of Miss Korea.
Beautiful, isn't she?
There is something special about the finals of Miss Korea 2013 that sets it apart from previous editions. This year, they allowed two contestants from overseas Korean communities to participate – one each from the US (Hannah Hwang) and Brazil (Catharina Choi Nunes).
Miss Korea 2013 is Yoo Ye-Bin.
Let’s focus on the Korean-Brazilian – whose traditional name is Choi Song-e – because she is the one who came close to the top of the finals last week. Had this 23 year-old charmer been luckier enough (instead of being clustered as one of four 2nd Runners-Up), she would have gone down the country’s pageant history as the first mixed-race winner. Her looks, while of a stronger and more defined mold from the perenially similar-looking candidates in the batch, easily stands out with a relatively more global appeal. Unfortunately, there is still clear preference for a pure-bred (Yoo Ye-Bin) who can still be transformed by the organizers into a far more competitive representative. How about you, dear readers? What do you think of her? Isn’t Catharina a more fetching option? 😉
