Philippines' Maureen Montagne wins Miss Globe 2021


Miss Philippines Maureen Montagne bested over 40 other beauties to be crowned Miss Globe 2021 on Friday, November 5 in Tirana, Albania.

The 28-year-old Filipino-American events host and model was born and raised in Arizona, USA. She succeeds Miss Globe 2020 Lorinda Kolgeci of Kosovo.

Nigeria's Esther Ogechi Gabriel settled for a first runner-up finish while Turkey's Melike Bali was named the second runner-up. The representatives of Venezuela, Jhosskaren Smiller Carrizo, and Canada, Hailey Hamelin-Wilson were the third and fourth runners-up, respectively.

Brazil, Dominican Republic, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Guyana, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Romania, and the USA completed the Top 15 semi-finalists.

The new Miss Globe is no stranger to pageantry as she has previously joined several national competitions both in the US and the Philippines before winning her Binibining Pilipinas Globe title in July. She is the second Filipina to win the Miss Globe pageant after Ann Lorraine Colis who won in 2015.

"I think that true beauty comes from within. To be a Miss Globe is to be a beauty that inspires. What makes us beautiful is our smiles, it's what we do for our community, it's how we give back to others, and it's how we carry ourselves through life," Maureen said in her answer to the final question round.

"I believe that everyone has beauty inside of them and I believe it's our duty to share it to the world and to give back and to truly inspire others," she added.
