Tashi Choden Chombal was crowned Miss Universe Bhutan 2022 in a national competition held on Saturday, June 4 in Thimphu.

The glittering event that aired on Bhutan Broadcasting Service (BBS) coincided with the birth anniversary of the queen of Bhutan, Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen Jetsun Pema Wangchuck.

Sonam Pelden and Eden Zangmo were the first and second runners-up, respectively.

The first-ever Miss Universe Bhutan is a 23-year-old fashion model from Wangdue. She bested 24 other contestants to win her title and is expected to represent her country at the Miss Universe 2022 pageant, whose date and venue are yet to be announced.
