Haiti is the best mover of 2016: up 38 notches!!

Philippines ends the year as the world´s number 1 beauty pageant powerhouse for the first time ever!

After a very frustrating 2000´s decade, in which the Philippines placed among Miss Universe´s quarter-finalists not even once, its comeback from 2010 up to now is truly extraordinary! Right now pageant-nuts Philippines is the number 1 powerhouse in beauty pageants, leaving Venezuela behind, in 2nd place. Not only that, 2016 witnessed its 2nd Country of the Year victory, with 1 Grand Slam title (International), 1 first runner-up (Grand), 2 finalists (World and Universe) and 1 quarter-finalist (Supranational).

Indonesia is also living its best ever moment in international pageantry, having placed in all 5 Grand Slam challenges, winning its first major crown (Grand) and jumping to a fantastic 13th place, being now very close to becoming one of the globe´s 10 powerhouses in the beauty pageant business.

Even after winning Miss Universe, France has not been able to join the top 10, and with Spain leaving this select group, Europe is completely out the powerhouse Top 10 list at this point. Haiti (48th) is the best mover of 2016, up 38 notches! Almost as impressive is Suriname, ending 2016 in 69th place, up 33 positions.

Watch out for Kenya, without a doubt an emerging African power, now 33rd in the GS Ranking.

The biggest droppers of 2016 were Romania (-33, 87th), Switzerland (-31, 82nd), and Bolivia (-23, 111th).

Congratulations to the movers and shakers of 2016!! May 2017 kick off!!
