With a final score of 4.197, our Missosology Timeless Beauty 2018 2nd runner-up is Tamaryn Green of South Africa.
There was a tall order for Tamaryn after winning the Miss South Africa crown: clinch a back-to-back victory in Miss Universe 2018. With a formidable delegate like her, the improbable was possible.

Tamaryn was on point since Day 1 in Bangkok. Her elegance was difficult to hide. Her eloquence couldn’t be denied. She was a top favorite. She owned the stage during the preliminaries. She the perfect delegate a country could ever wish for.
Tamaryn breezed through the finals night. She was styled perfectly: from her silky straight hair in the swimsuit round to her high ponytail in the evening gown competition. She could have easily won the crown if it were another year, but she was up against another phenomenal contender in the Philippines’ Catriona Gray.
She might not have won the crown, but Tamaryn will always be remembered as one of the most graceful and gorgeous faces to have graced the pageant world. Missosology.Org
