Miss Intercontinental 2022 is Le Nguyen Bao Ngoc of Vietnam


Le Nguyen Bao Ngoc of Vietnam beat 70 other contestants to win the Miss Intercontinental 2022 pageant on Friday, October 14 at the Meraki Resort in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

The 21-year-old model succeeds last year's winner Cinderella Faye Obeñita of the Philippines and made history by becoming the first-ever representative from Vietnam to win the title in the pageant's 50-year history.

Puerto Rico's Mariela Pepin was named first runner-up while Brazil's Maria Cecília Almeida de Sousa finished as the second runner-up. Joy Raimi Mojisola of Nigeria, Tatjana Genrich of Germany, and Emmy Marianne Carrero Mora of Venezuela were announced as the third, fourth, and fifth runners-up, respectively.

Completing the Top 20 were the contestants from Zimbabwe, Mauritius, Japan, Thailand, Australia, Philippines, Netherlands, Russia, Hungary, Slovak Republic, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Cuba, and Colombia.

The new Miss Intercontinental was born in Can Tho, a city known for its canal network and nearby floating markets at the heart of southern Vietnam’s Mekong Delta region. Prior to being appointed as Miss Intercontinental Vietnam, she participated in Miss World Vietnam 2022 where she placed first runner-up.

Joining the international competition in Egypt was her first-ever travel experience outside of her beloved country. Apart from winning the coveted title, she also bagged the continental title of Miss Intercontinental Asia and Oceania during the Top 6 announcement.

"To be the most beautiful woman of all continents means to be a woman who possesses all qualities of a modern-day queen and who is committed to being an ambassador for her community," she said in her bio on the Miss Intercontinental website.

"I am determined to bring the brightest values and most authentic version of a modern Vietnamese woman, of myself. It is my goal to represent my roots and to connect across cultures, and to make new friends with all other contestants," she added.
