Miss Earth Water 2013 Loses Crown After Breaching Contract

MANILA – Punika Kulsoontornrut of Thailand loses crown after breaching her contract.

Carousel Productions, Inc. informed Kulsoontornrut of her dethronement last October 10 through a letter, a copy of which was furnished to ABS-CBN News by executive vice president Lorraine Schuck on Monday.

The letter indicates violation of her existing contract as Miss Earth Water after joining another pageant which is the Miss International.

Venezuela’s Alyz Henrich was named Miss Earth 2013 in the finals night held in Las Piñas in December last year. Austria’s Katia Wagner was named Miss Air, while Korea’s Catharina Choi placed as Miss Fire.

If Kulsoontornrut pushes through with Miss International pageant next month, she will battle against the Philippines’ Bianca Guidotti, in the hope of succeeding another Filipina, reigning Miss International Bea Rose Santiago.

Miss Earth 2014 will hold its grand coronation night on November 29 at the UP Theater in Quezon City.
