 Thailand in Miss World

Best Thai MW result: 4th place in 1989.

Thailand, a country known for its unique beauty and culture, has managed to win the Miss Universe title twice (1965, 1988), and Miss Tourism Queen once (2011). However, in Miss World, its beauties have never reached a Top 3 position.

The best Miss World historical result for Thailand was a 4th place with Pathumrat “Helen” Woramali, in 1989. Eight years later, in 1997, Tanya Tiana “Thaen” Suesuntisook placed 5th in the Seychelles.

In the last two years Thai beauties placed well in Miss World, with a semi-finalist in 2010, and a quarter-finalist in 2011.

How do you think Vanessa “Na-Chatra” Muangkod will fair in Miss World 2012?

  4. SO Beautifulll!

  5. She is really beautiful. I think she has potential as she won two fast tracks in Miss World Thailand this year, Top Model and Beauty with a purpose. So as I said she has high potential to be placed this year on MW. And I hope she could make it through Top 7 or even Top 3!

  6. Beautful!

  7. She is beautiful, a very good chance in Miss World. Congrats.

  8. She is beautiful in Thailand but if she were to compete in Binibing Pilipinas, she would just be an average contestant

    • beautiful in Thailand but an average contestant in the Philippines??? What a ridiculous statement to make, considering that for all their obsession with beauty pageants, Miss Philippines’ record in either Miss World or Miss Universe has not been all that great and if not for internet voting, I doubt Miss Philippines would have had such strong performances in Miss World in recent years. I don’t know why Filipinos always gave to comment on other countries having average contestants yet still claim Philippines have the most beautiful candidate- perhaps this is an example of nationalism going overboard

      • HA-HA Soraya. I like that a lot. Wonder if Rosalia took her time to read this properly. Calling someone average beauty. Are you beautiful?

  9. Both the runners up were wayyyyyy better!
