Miss Earth 2022 Mina Sue Choi clarifies 'crown in paper bag' situation


After arriving back in Korea, the newly crowned Miss Earth 2022 Mina Sue Choi was bashed online for one reason — she came home with her international crown placed in a paper bag.

Pageant fans paid attention to her arrival video posted on social media and were quick to criticize her including the Miss Earth organization for not placing the precious crown in an appropriate box.

Not new to many, the original Miss Earth crown which is made of precious gems signifying the Earth's resources stays with the organization — the winner travels with a replica.

While many defended the Korean beauty queen, the "crown in a paper bag" situation did not escape the rabid online bashers from noticing.

Mina went to online to publicly address the most talked about issue in a comment. She clarified the crown was only a replica that she just received before leaving the Philippines. Worried she might drop it while hand carrying, she decided to place it in a paper bag along with fabric to protect it.

The new Miss Earth also assured the fans she will search for a box where she can put the crown and will take better care of it at home.

Anyone who would like to sponsor a crown box for Miss Earth, let us know!
