Maureen Montagne was crowned Miss Globe 2021 in Albania, continuing the Philippines’ dominance in international pageants this year. Her victory came just days after Cinderella Obeita, a classmate in Binibining Pilipinas, was crowned Miss Intercontinental 2021 in Egypt.
Maureen Montagne won the Miss Globe title after defeating over 40 other contenders, giving her the Philippines’ second Miss Globe winner following Ann Colis in 2015.
Candidates from Nigeria (first runner-up), Turkey (second runner-up), Venezuela (third runner-up), and Canada (fourth runner-up) are among Montagne’s runners-up (fourth runner-up).
Montagne was asked about beauty and how it may be enhanced during the question and answer session.
She replied: “I think that true beauty comes from within. To be a Miss Globe is to be a beauty that inspires. What makes us beautiful is our smiles, it’s what we do for our community. It’s how we give back to others, and it’s how we carry ourselves through life.”
“I believe that everyone has beauty inside of them, and I believe it is our duty to share it with the world, and to give back, and to truly inspire others.”
Maureen Montagne, who is 28 years old, has worked as a commercial model and a professional host, as well as a magazine writer.
She was the first runner-up in Miss Eco International 2019 prior to her participation in Miss Globe. After the winner, Peru’s Suheyn Cipriani was dethroned due to pregnancy, the crown was eventually offered to her.
Montagne turned down the offer, and fourth-place finisher Amy Tinie Abdul Aziz of Malaysia won the title that year.
