Miss Grand International 2020, the 8th edition of Miss Grand International, is all set to be held on 27th March 2021 in Bangkok, Thailand where stunning beauties from all over the world will compete for the international crown. Miss Grand International 2019 Valentina Figuera will crown her successor at the end of the event finale.

While this year’s batch boasts of stunning and talented beauties, there are a few ladies who have stood out amongst the rest and show immense capability to be crowned the winner of the 2020 edition. In a series of features, here are our Top 15 favourite contestants for the crown (in no particular order).



Iris Miguélez Méndez is the official representative of Spain at Miss Grand International 2020 and has made it to our favourites with her beauty and dedication. She hails from Galicia. Iris is 22 years of age and stands 174 cm tall. Iris is currently finishing her career in nursing; a profession she is passionate about and aspires to train in aesthetic medicine.

Before being appointed Miss Grand Spain 2020, Iris participated at Miss Grand Galicia 2019 and was chosen as Miss Gran Costa Gallega 2019 after which she represented her province at Miss Grand Spain 2019 and finished at Top 5 at the end of the event finale.



Iris strongly believes that beauty pageants should be maintained as these are the contests which helps in conveying a strong and impactful message to the public. During an interview held while she was competing at Miss Grand Spain 2019, she shared, “Let your children fight, or the sport they like, or take part in a beauty pageant. I never thought about competing. I understand that I don’t have enough confidence in myself to do this, but curiosity made me introduce myself and here I am. I’m embarrassed, but getting into this can mean cracking up with that shame. They are the ones who think that doors cannot be closed.”



Standing 174 cm tall, Iris also practiced wresting initially; a sport that made her understand what sacrifice, respect, humility is, and how she must work hard to get what she wants, to know how to take defeats and raise her head no matter what happens. Unfortunately, Iris left after four years at the Pontevedra Sports Technification Center due to an injury. The stunning beauty of Spain has all the characteristics of a winner and if she keeps her preparation strong, Iris will definitely pioneer her country’s win at Miss Grand International.
