Miss Brasil Terra 2022 is Jessica Pedroso of São Paulo

Miss São Paulo, Jessica Pedroso, bested 26 other contestants to be crowned Miss Brasil Terra 2022 (Miss Brazil Earth) on Wednesday, October 12 at the Sheraton São Paulo WTC Hotel.

The 23-year-old fashion model and bilingual teacher succeeds last year's titleholder Cássia Adriane Araújo and will now represent Brazil at the Miss Earth 2022 pageant in the Philippines come November.

Rounding out the Top 5 finalists were Eduarda Van de Sand (Paraná), Larissa Han (Espírito Santo), and Juliana Rosa (Santa Catarina), who were respectively named Miss Brazil Air, Water and Fire, while Alana Santos (Ceará) placed fifth.

This year's competition was the first edition of the Miss Brasil Terra pageant under the leadership of businessman Marcelo Riformato as executive director.

Former queens Deise Nunes (Miss Brasil 1986), Patrícia Godoi (Miss Brasil 1991), Júlia Gama (Miss Brasil 2020 and Miss Universe first runner-up), and Teresa Santos (Miss Universo Brasil 2021) were part of the judging panel.

Amazonians Priscilla Meirelles (Miss Earth 2004) and Larissa Ramos (Miss Earth 2009) remotely gave a special message during the show.

The new Miss Brasil Terra holds a degree in education, a master's in modern language, and is from a family of educators. Her social project "seeds of good" aims to educate children from municipal, public, rural, and suburban schools, in a playful way, about their importance and how we can change the world if we are united for a greater cause, thus becoming the guardians of good for our future.
