Representing Hungary, Tünde Blága won the Miss Tourism Continental 2021 beauty pageant organized by Beirut Golden Awards (BGA) between March 26 and April 1 in the Lebanese capital of Beirut. Her court included Sierra Leone's Rouwaida Davillion (1st runner-up), Turkey's Semra Salif (2nd runner-up) and Romania's Ioana Dorohoi (3rd runner-up).

The Miss Tourism Continental was organized for the first time this year by Beirut Golden Awards. It is a social and cultural association in Lebanon, which besides holding various events in the field of tourism, culture, and the economy has also organized several other beauty contests.



The newly crowned beauty is 23 years of age who enjoys reading books, music and loves sports. Blaga has a charming personality and stands 167 cm tall. With her fit and toned tall physique, she can surely grab the attention of many. After being crowned, the beauty took to her social media where she wrote, “Miss Tourism Continental 2021 BGA Ambassador. It’s still incredible, but I won an international beauty contest. My heartfelt thanks to the people who believed in me all the way.”

By profession, she is a model and the modelling teacher who is no stranger to pageantry as she was also crowed Miss Earth Hungary 2019. She also ended up securing a place in the Top 10 in Miss Nation's Beauty 2016, competed in other pageants such as Magyarok Vilagszepe 2016, won Face of the Year Transylvania title and ended up being placed in the Top 10 of Miss Intercontinental Hungary.



Being held in the pandemic times, the competition faced a lot of hurdles, because of the pandemic-related precautions, aiming to lower the risk and the number of contacts, all the girls arriving from different parts of the world was put into two separate groups from the very first day.

The finals could not be held the way they were originally planned, and the organizers had to come up with a plan B at the last minute. Although the Lebanese government had already announced at the beginning of the week-long beauty contest that the whole country would be under total lockdown during Easter between April 3 and April 6, meaning that it was yet not in effect on the day of the finals (April 1), the managers of the venue still decided to lock it down just four hours before the start.
