The Irony at Miss Universe Chile 2016 Pageant
This year 3 former Miss Earth Chile competed for the title of Miss Universe Chile 2016. They were Natalia Lermanda Margarit (2013), Catalina Caceres(2014) , Natividad Leiva (2015). Apparently Lermanda placed in Top 16 and Natividad placed in Top 8 at Miss Earth in their respective years. Only Catalina was left out of Top 16 in finale at Miss Earth 2014. Later on when all 3 competed, Catalina won the main title where as Natividad placed as 1st runner up and Lermanda failed to place in Top 8 at Miss Universe Chile. This took a complete U-turn to what they perform at their previous international pageant. Isn’t it ironical?
