Before the Miss International finals, it was a close fight between Venezuela and the Philippines for the honor, with the former already has 2 major titles this year: Miss Universe and Miss Earth.
Philippines on one hand has Miss Supranational, Miss World and now, the tie-breaker, Miss International.
5 big pageants in the world were won this year by just 2 countries, Philippines and Venezuela.

While it still looks like a tie between Venezuela and the Philippines if male pageants included (because the former also won Mister International this year), the Philippines' achievements in other pageants could clearly tell that it's the top-performing country when it comes to beauty pageants this 2013, whether major or minor pageants, topping its 2012 achievements, when it won Manhunt International, Miss International Queen and Miss Tourism International.
The year 2013, no longer 2012, is the Philippines' best year ever in pageants. That despite there's still one more competition left this 2013, the year-end pageant Miss Tourism International 2013/2014.
Here's a long list of beauty pageant achievers from the Philippines for the Year 2013. Be amazed, and if you're a Filipino, you'd be super proud.
