At the conclusion of the glitzy finals night, the Miss Bolivia 2017 pageant crowned the country’s representative to four of the Big 5 pageants. The crowning of the winners took place last July 1 in a televised show aired live to the entire Bolivia.
Gleisy Noguer, the representative of Pando, was crowned Miss Bolivia Universo 2017 (Miss Universe Bolivia 2017). She will be the Bolivian delegate to the Miss Universe 2017 pageant in a yet to be announced date and venue.
Senorita Litoral Carla Maldonado was crowned Miss Bolivia Internacional 2017 (Miss International Bolivia 2017) while Senorita Sta. Cruz Giancarla Fernandez was declared Miss Bolivia Tierra 2017 (Miss Earth Bolivia 2017).
The Bolivian delegate to Miss International will travel to Tokyo, Japan to compete at Miss International 2017. On the other hand, the Miss Earth delegate will compete in Manila, the Philippines for the 16th edition of the environmental-themed Miss pageant.
Prior to the finals of Miss Bolivia 2017, Yasmin Pinto of Sta. Cruz was hailed Miss Bolivia Mundo 2017 (Miss World Bolivia 2017) and will compete in China for the Miss World 2017 finals. After the crowning of the Miss World delegate, the remaining 23 contestants competed at the Miss Bolivia 2017 finals for the remaining crowns.
Also crowned in the finals night is the fifth winner, Nimeyra Flores as Miss Continentes Unidos 2017 (Miss United Continents 2017).
Gabriela Espíndola (Miss Tarija) finished first runner-up, while Marilin Zugel (Miss Andalucia) was second runner-up. Mariem Suárez (Miss Litoral) and Andrea Ustariz (Miss Residentes Bolivia) were third and fourth runners-up, respectively.
This year’s edition of Miss Bolivia pageant has been an exciting one. After the candidates competed in the usual swimsuit, evening gown, and interview rounds, there has been a three-way tie between Senorita Litoral, Pando, and Sta. Cruz. The judges were then asked to judge the three ladies once again and this time, Senorita Pando got the highest score, thus winning the Miss Universe Bolivia crown. Senorita Litoral and Senorita Sta. Cruz were then voted Miss Bolivia International and Miss Bolivia Earth respectively.
