The swimsuit segment and Miss Friendship selection for 2019’s Miss Chinese International Pageant was held on March 1, 2019, with #1 Tavee Meeasang (鄭子怡) from Bangkok, Thailand taking home the Miss Friendship honor.
The 24-year-old told reporters that he was born in 1994, which was also the year Saesim Pornapa Sui (沈玉翎) became the first Bangkok representative to win the Miss Chinese International title. She was the inspiration that drove Tavee to audition for the pageant.
Tavee is an experienced news anchor, having covered a variety of different subjects for various television stations in the past eight years. Fit, friendly, and kind, the happy-go-lucky Tavee is the ideal winner for Miss Friendship. There has been some talk that Tavee had underwent plastic surgery, in particular her nose. When drilled with the question, the Thai news anchor merely said, “Secret! Hahaha!”
It’s a competitive race for Miss Chinese International this year. Although #5 Hera Chan (陳曉華) from Hong Kong—also 2018’s Miss Hong Kong winner—remains to be a hot favorite, #4 Stephanie Wang (王慧緩) from Hawaii, USA is a shining star. The Miss Vitality winner stood out during the swimsuit segment with her athletic built. #6 Javane Phang (彭嘉伊) from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is also a hot favorite to win.
The 2019 Miss Chinese International Pageant finals will be held on Saturday, March 2nd.
