สิรีธร ลีห์อร่ามวัฒน์ (Bint Sireethorn Leearamwat) of Thailand 🇹🇭 wins Miss International 2019. She is a pharmacist by profession.
1st Runner Up is Andrea Toscano of Mexico
2nd Runner-Up is Evelyn Namatovu of Uganda
3rd Runner-Up is Maria Alejandra Vengoechea of Colombia
4th Runner-Up is Harriotte Lane of the United Kingdom
Miss Philippines Patch Magtanong finished in the Top 8.
I believe the results just prove how unpredictable the organization can be in selecting their winners. Miss Thailand captured the heart and attention of the judges and no amount of good speech could dismantle the halo effect that has been showered on her.
This edition also shows how strong the ASEAN delegates have become, with four of them making the Top 8.

Last year, the Philippines claimed its first-ever 1st Runner-Up finish in Miss International when Ma. Ahtisa Manalo placed second to eventual winner Mariem Claret Velazco of Venezuela. It was a placement that could have gone either way for the two fiercely-competing countries which have so far collected the most number of wins in the Japan-based competition.
This year, will it be a duplicate for the Philippines with Atty. Bea Patricia Magtanong? There’s always a good chance of that happening, just as making it simply to the Top 5 or the Top 10 is the best that she can deliver in the finals.
Personally, I am rooting for Patch. So I really hope that she becomes our 7th.
Anyways, below are some rehearsal photos for the Final Gala of Miss International Beauty Pageant 2019 with her.
The coronation will be streamed live on the pageant’s Facebook page, Youtube channel and Hikari TV starting at 2pm (Japan time) tomorrow afternoon (around 1pm in the Philippines).

Will our 7th Miss International be crowned soon? Will Atty. Bea Patricia Magtanong be the one to bring us that honor and follow the glorious trail started by the six women above?
We will all know during Tuesday night’s finals of Miss International 2019 LIVE from Tokyo Dome City Hall in Bunkyo district, Tokyo, Japan.
