Ximena Vargas, who represented Bolivia in Miss International 2010, was the first international beauty queen crowned in 2012: she was chosen as the new International Queen of Coffee, in an event held in the city of Manizales, Colombia. Vargas also won the Most Beautiful Face award.
Top 5: Indonesia (3rd), Colombia (2nd), Brazil (5th), Bolivia (1st), Venezuela (4th)
The 1st runner-up was Miss Colombia, Yoselín Rincón, the 2nd runner-up was Miss Indonesia, Laskary Andaly, the 3rd runner-up was Miss Venezuela, Gabriella Ferrari, and the 4th runner-up was Miss Brazil, Aline Reis.
Indonesia participated in the pageant for the first time ever. Miss Venezuela, Gabriella Ferrari, will compete in Miss World 2012, in Ordos, China, on August 18.
One of the surprises of the night was the early elimination of Miss Costa Rica, Fabiana Granados Herrera, who had been chosen as “Police Queen”, and was considered one of the favorites for the crown.
With Ximena Vargas, Bolivia won its second Coffee crown in Manizales. The first one came in 2008, with Jessica Jordan.
