Miss Thailand 2020 is Natthapat Pongpraphan

Natthapat Pongpraphan bested 29 other contestants to win Miss Thailand 2020 on Saturday, December 13 at the Chiang Mai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The 27-year-old beauty who hails from Nakhon Pathom province was crowned by last year’s winner and reigning Miss International, Sireethorn Leearamwat. She is a graduate of geosciences degree at Mahidol University in Kanchanaburi.

Nithakan Aksornwan was named first runner-up while Supannikar Nopparat bagged the second runner-up position. Kamonporn Thongphol and Patitta Santiwitch were the third and fourth runners-up, respectively.

This year’s winner received a new diamond-encrusted crown valued at 1.5 million baht. Sponsored by Siri Thai Gem, the crown inspired by the Chao Phraya River was crafted by Chawalit Chommuang.

It is yet to be confirmed if the new Miss Thailand will represent her country at the next Miss International pageant.

The longest-running Thai beauty pageant was first held in 1934 as Miss Siam until it became Miss Thailand in 1939.

Traditionally, the winner used to be sent to the Miss Universe pageant but that is no longer the case since 2000 when the national organizers lost the franchise from the Miss Universe Organization.
