Netherlands has won the Miss World crown twice before. In 1959, Corine Rottschäfer of Hoorn won the title for the first time and in 1962, Catharina Lodders of Haarlem won the crown again. However, in the last 10 years, the closest it could reach was in 2012 when Nathalie den Dekker secured a spot in Top 15 at Miss World 2012. This year Philisantha will try her best to grab the third crown of Miss World for Nederlands. Do you think it’s possible? Do share your views in the comment section.
