With a final score of 4.242, our Missosology Timeless Beauty 2019 1st runner-up is Paweensuda Drouin of Thailand.
Paweensuda first competed in Miss Earth in 2017. Back then, she was predicted to win and was even named as Missosology’s people’s choice winner. However, she faltered in the all-important “hashtag” and finished in the Top 8. On that same year, she finished 6th in Missosology Timeless Beauty. “This is not the end of my journey, in fact it has only just begun,” Paweensuda posted on Instagram weeks after the Miss Earth finals.
Beauty and timeless appeal: 4.182
Overall performance: 3.864
Global impact: 4.682
FINAL SCORE: 4.242
True enough, Paweensuda came back stronger than ever, en route to bagging the Miss Universe Thailand 2019 title. The win cemented her front-runner status in the Miss Universe 2019 competition. After the respective victory of Thailand in Miss International and Miss Supranational last year, Paweensuda was poised to further cement their dominance in pageantry with a Miss Universe win.
She breezed through the early rounds of the competition, but the Q&A woes continued to haunt her. Despite not making it to the Top 3, Paweensuda has left an indelible mark in the pageant scene. She will always be one of the most loved beauty queens in history. Missosology.Org
