Venezuela pioneered its win at Miss International in 1985 when Nina Sicilia was crowned as the Miss International queen. The second and third crown came in 1997 and 2000 with Consuelo Adler and Vivian Urdaneta’s win. The 2000s was a good decade for Venezuela with a win in 2003, 2006 and 2010. Edymar Martínez obtained the next crown for Venezuela in 2015 while Mariem Velazco won the crown in 2018 after which Rubio clinched the ninth crown.
