Miss Grand International 2013 Winner, Official Results

The 1st ever Miss Grand International 2013 pageant took place Thursday night, November 19, 2013, at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

There were 71 candidates, who were trimmed down to just 20. The Top 20 competed in swimsuit, then only 10 stayed for the evening gown round. Out of the Top 10 semi-finalists, 5 were called for the Question and Answer (Q&A) portion, which had one final question for all 5 finalists: "What would you do to prevent war and global conflict?"

After a very loooooong deliberation by the judges, the final and official results were revealed with Miss Puerto Rico Janelee Chaparro as the Miss Grand International 2013 winner.

Miss Puerto Rico already competed during the Miss World 2012 pageant and finished in the Top 30.
