The last Miss Universe winner from Thailand was still in 1988 when an American educated Thai beauty Porntip Nakhirunkanok won the prestigious crown 29 years ago. Last year, Chalita Suansane placed high in the finals when she landed in the Top 6 among the sea of 86 accomplished women in the universe. This year, Thailand hopes to win another title with a gorgeous representative at par with the beautiful and brainy Porntip and Maria Ehren is one of the leading contenders who is pegged to achieve such gargantuan task and replicate Porntip's Miss Universe victory.
The Miss Universe Thailand 2017 will be crowned on Saturday night, July 29th during the glittering grand coronation finale inside the Royal Paragon Hall in Bangkok, Thailand.
