Vietnam names representative to Miss Earth 2022

VOV.VN - Thach Thu Thao, the second runner-up at Miss Ethnic Vietnam 2022, has been chosen as the Vietnamese representative to the upcoming Miss Earth 2022 contest which is set to take place in October 2022 in the Philippines.

The ethnic Khmer girl shared that she felt happy to represent Vietnam at the global contest and she would make every effort to introduce Vietnamese culture to new foreign friends.

The 21-year-old girl hailing from Tra Vinh province stands at 1.78 metres tall, weighs 50kg and has body measurement of 74-61-88. She first rose to prominence during the grand finale of Miss Ethnic Vietnam 2022 when she won the second runner-up title. 

Nong Thuy Hang, a girl of the Tay ethnic group, beat 30 contestants on the final night of Miss Ethnic Vietnam on July 16, to win top prize of the contest.

However, she was not chosen to represent Vietnam at Miss Earth 2022. Explaining the reason, Truong Ngoc Anh, chairwoman of the board of Nova Entertainment which organises Miss Earth 2023 in Vietnam, told media workers on July 18 that Thu Thao has met criteria for the global contest.

Anh also announced that Vietnam will officially play host to Miss Earth 2023. The fourth world’s largest beauty contest is scheduled to get underway in the central coastal city of Nha Trang, with the participation of nearly 100 contestants from across the globe. It aims to seek ambassadors who can call for greater environmental protection throughout the globe.

Miss Earth was originally launched by the Philippines Carousel Production Company in 2001 in order to promote environmentally-friendly activities. Vietnam played host to this contest in 2010.
