Looking at over 500 pageant winners, money.co.uk compared their birthplaces to find out if some countries appeared on our list more than others.

These famous names included winners of Miss World, Miss Universe, Mr Gay World, and many other pageants.

 

It is perhaps no surprise that the USA tops the list as the home of Hollywood and beauty pageants. However, Venezuela takes second, with 35, followed by Brazil (26), the UK (19), and the Philippines (23).

The most beautiful cities in the world

Next, money.co.uk looked at the individual cities that have produced the highest quota of winners, and while the USA may have taken the crown for nations, we did not find stateside the most beautiful city in the world.

1. Caracas, Venezuela – the birthplace of 10 pageant winners

Caracas in Venezuela is in the first place, with Venezuela known for taking beauty pageants seriously, having won more “Big Four” titles than any other nation. Some of the most famous beauties to come out of Caracas are Dayana Mendoza and Claudia Moreno.

2. Bangkok, Thailand – the birthplace of 7 pageant winners

In second place was Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, which has produced seven pageant winners. Interestingly, four of these were winners in LGBT+ pageants.

3. Sydney, Australia – the birthplace of 6 pageant winners

They tied two cities in third place, with six beauty pageant winners hailing from Sydney, Australia. Perhaps the most famous of these is Jessica Kahawaty, who has represented both her native Australia and the country of her descent, Lebanon.

3. Turku, Finland – the birthplace of 6 pageant winners

The other city to produce six pageant winners was a surprise, with the city of Turku in Finland tied for second place. The city is home to just under 200,000 people but has produced an exceptionally high number of beauty queens, given its small size.

5. Maracaibo, Venezuela – the birthplace of 5 pageant winners

Another Venezuela city is amongst those to have produced five pageant winners, again showing the country’s affinity with pageants. Maracaibo is the home of the likes of Jessica Barboza and Daniela Kosán.

5. Manila, Philippines – the birthplace of 5 pageant winners

We consider the Philippines another powerhouse of the beauty pageant world, which explains why the capital of Manila has produced the joint fifth-highest number of winners.

5. San Juan, Puerto Rico – the birthplace of 5 pageant winners

The Puerto Rican capital of San Juan is also home to give beauty pageant winners, with Stephanie Del Valle, who won Miss World in 2016, probably the best known of these.

The most beautiful states in the USA

With the USA being revealed as the most beautiful country, we also decided to take a deeper look into the specific states that have produced the most beauty queens and kings.

The result was a tie between Texas and California with nine each, although Texas had a larger share of winners, compared to runner-ups.

Beauties from the Lone Star State include Alyssa Edwards (who appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race) and Paola Turbay.
