Jamie Herrell becomes the 2nd from the country to win the Miss Earth title, the first was Karla Paula Henry in 2008. Just like Henry, Herrell is also from Cebu City.
In 14 editions of Miss Earth, three (3) countries have won the title twice already: Brazil (2004, 2009), Venezuela (2005, 2013) and now the Philippines (2008, 2014).
