After four days of enjoying themselves touring the various venues arranged in their honour, the finale of Miss International Queen 2010 went off in glittering spendour and not a little disappointment for those who failed to make the grade.
After touring the various tourism activities arranged for them from Nov16, the big occasion for the host of beautiful lady-boy contestants had finally come to present their collective talents and beauty on the final stage. In the first round, the committee selected 10 contestants, which was rapidly whittled down to the three semi-finalists from America, Japan and Korea.
Of those final three, two had to share their disappointment as the title Miss International Queen 2010 went to Number 9, Mini from Korea, who won the crown, honour sash, and US$10,000, along with other gifts from sponsors. The other two did get the reward of fine compensation prizes, however. The 1st runner up was Number 20, Ami Takeuchi from Japan, who received US$2,000, while the 2nd runner up prize went to Number 7, Stasha Sanchez from America, who received US$1,500.
In addition, various other awards were announced, including:
-The Best National Dress for Mini from Korea
-The Best Evening dress for Nong Mix (Nonlada Thamthanakorn)
-The Best Talent for Melania from Columbia
-Miss Friendship for Stella Rocha from France
-The Photographer’s Favourite for Ami Takeuchi from Japan
-Miss Perfect Skin for Number 17, Alexandra from Sweden
-Miss Ripley’s Popular Vote for Number 2, Barbie Gauthier from Belgium
