Angelia Gabrena Ong & Tereza Fajksova: The Best Miss Earth Winners

If I am asked who is/are the best Miss Earth winner/s in its 16 year history, I would not hesitate to name Angelia Gabrena Ong and Tereza Fajksova.

I have always respected and admired Angelia Gabrena Ong from the start of her competing in Miss Philippines Earth to her international competition in Vienna, she has handled the pressures of the crown with grace and sensibility. She has always been very diplomatic and professional in her public statements towards issues whether it be about her chances of a back-to-back win, her thoughts on the Hitler-Duterte comment of her successor, or even issues that could make or break a beauty pageant winner’s career. There is class and elan in the way she carries herself that is rare among pageant girls which could be found in most winners.
Tereza on the other hand has been the most visible and well traveled among its titleholders. She has traveled to 12 countries during her reign: Mauritius, Cote d’Ivoire, Reunion Island, Finland, Ghana, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, South Sudan, Austria, Egypt, Philippines and Kosovo. Her self-admission that she did not understand the question during the final Q&A and gave a reply with the most sincere of responses showed how truly amazing this woman is.

Both of these girls were epitomes of what a Miss Earth winner should be: gracious, classy, smart/intelligent, sincere and down-to-earth. I am just hoping that future winners would look up to these ladies as a perfect role-model for the title.
