clipped from

MANILA, Philippines—Brazil thwarted the Philippines’ attempt to win a back-to-back victory in the Miss Earth beauty pageant held at Boracay Ecovillage Convention Center on the island of Boracay Sunday night.

Brazil’s Larissa Ramos bested 78 other contestants, including hometown bet Sandra Inez Seifert. She took home the $20,000 prize and the distinction of being the first woman to receive the newly designed crown valued at $100,000. Last year’s winner, the Philippines’ Karla Paula Henry, gave her a tight embrace before relinquishing the title.

Ramos is the second Brazilian to be proclaimed Miss Earth, the first one being Priscilla Meirelles, who chaired the pageant’s panel of judges.
