Thai-American beauty, Manita Farmer, wins Miss Thailand 2022 pageant

Manita Duangkham Farmer was crowned Miss Thailand 2022 in a glittering competition held on Sunday, February 6 at Central World in Bangkok.

The 25-year-old Thai-American beauty who was born and raised in Phuket bested 24 other finalists to win her national title. She succeeds Natthapat Pongpraphan.

Anphat Pitiprajakwat of Nakhon Pathom was named first runner-up while Wanida Rose of Bangkok, Athicha Rennie of Kanchanaburi, and Sornson Wittayaruengsuk of Bangkok, were the second, third, and fourth runners-up, respectively.

The new Miss Thailand is a communication arts graduate of Bangkok University International College, a sales manager, and a volunteer teacher. It is still unknown if she will be sent to an international pageant but as the reigning titleholder, she will represent modern Thai women with a voice in society, participate in many public philanthropic missions, promote education especially to the disadvantaged children, and become an ambassador for culture and tourism.

This year's competition, themed "Revival of the Original," was the 53rd edition of the national pageant which was originally called Miss Siam when it was first held in 1934.

The pageant used to send its winner to Miss Universe pageant until 1999 and was able to produce two Miss Universe winners with Apasra Hongsakula in 1965 and Porntip Nakhirunkanok 1988, two Miss Asia Pacific with Preeyanuch Panpradub in 1988 and Worarat Suwannarat in 1997, and lately one Miss International with Sireethorn Leearamwat in 2019.
