Miss Supranatio­nal 2021 to air live on CNN Philippine­s


The 12th edition of Miss Supranatio­nal pageant will air on Sunday, August 22 at 2am, live via satellite from Nowy Sącz, Poland on CNN Philippine­s.

This followed the announceme­nt made last April 14 by Miss and Mister Supranatio­nal president Gerhard Parzutka von Lipinski that the contest will be held on August 21. Supranatio­nal 2021 was originally scheduled at the end of 2020 but was postponed due to the pandemic.

Philippine­s’ bet, Dindi Pajares will compete against 56 other contestant­s. A native from Orani Bataan, Pajares is an entreprene­ur, flight attendant, military sergeant and a reserve commander for the Philippine Air Force.

Before joining Miss Supranatio­nal, Pajares also joined Miss Philippine­s Earth 2011; Binibining Pilipinas 2016 and 2017; and Miss World Philippine­s 2020, where she was crowned Miss Supranatio­nal Philippine­s 2021.

Miss Supranatio­nal began in 2009 in Poland. The most recent competitio­n involved candidates from 77 countries. Meanwhile, its male counterpar­t, Mister Supranatio­nal, began in 2016, also in Poland.

The current pageant title holders are Anntonia Porsild of Thailand, and Nate Crnkovich of the United States. The Philippine­s has so far won one Miss Supranatio­nal crown, with Mutya Datul’s triumph in 2013.

Miss World Philippine­s National Director and Miss/Mr. Supranatio­nal Philippine­s franchise holder Arnold Vegafria is excited about the country’s participat­ion in the prestigiou­s pageant that highlights glamour, fashion and natural beauty.

He says, “We were actually more than ready to field our candidates when we finalized our partnershi­p with the Miss/Mr. Supranatio­nal organizati­on last year, but it was unfortunat­e that we had to set aside our plans because of the global pandemic. With the more optimistic global scenario these days, I’m very certain that Dindi stands a good chance of claiming the crown and putting the Philippine­s back on the pageant map.”
