It's the first time ever that Ecuador won the Miss Earth title and already it's second "grand slam pageant title" this 2011.

Last November 6 (in only less than a month ago), Ecuadorian Maria Fernanda Cornejo won the Miss International 2011 title, also a first for Ecuador.

Here's the official results of the Miss Earth 2011 pageant:

(From L-R): Philippines (Miss Water), Ecuador (Miss Earth), Brazil (Miss Air), Venezuela (Miss Water)

Chinese Taipei, Cherry Liu
Japan, Tomoko Maeda
Paraguay, Nicole Huber
