The seventh edition of Miss Grand International, i.e. Miss Grand International 2019, was hosted on 25th October 2019 in Caracas, Venezuela where for the first time in the pageant history the host country delegate won the crown. Lourdes Valentina Figuera Morales of Venezuela performed with excellence and grace and won the crown.

The pageant began with a few bumps as the host hotel caught fire before the arrival of delegates was due. But the organization caught on with the production as the preliminary competitions were held on time and with due diligence.

The coronation night began with Miss Grand International 2018 Clara Sosa of Paraguay dancing with the sixty delegates in the opening number wearing their red dresses. As the contestants came and introduced themselves one by one, the audience cheered for their favourite.

The lighting and stage setting was as usual brilliant as the organization makes sure that the performances of the contestants are highlighted every year during the coronation night. Clara Sosa hosted the finale night with Leo Aldana, both of who spoke fluent Spanish and English at the finale.

The judges were introduced at the show which did not include any former beauty queen along with the welcome of the President of Miss Grand International who made it all possible. His decision of hosting the show in Venezuela was not taken well by a few delegates who backed out of the show even before the contest began making it the lowest footfall in the pageant so far.

The Popular Choice was kept as the audience were also made to feel as a part of the show who voted Vietnam as their favourite. The Top 10 contestants also gave their speeches on ‘Stop the War and Violence theme’ at the finale.

A special announcement was also made at the contest about the 2020 edition of Miss Grand International as Clara announced that Venezuela will host the next year’s edition as well. With all the political unrest going on in Venezuela, the organization made a smart choice keeping the pageant’s theme in mind and showing that the country could host sixty delegates with ease given the current situation.
