“Due to the aforementioned, we made the decision to suspend our contest, a situation we regret but that for the sake of the ladies and the franchise representative will not be carried out,” the organization stated.

Miss United Continents is a franchise organized by the Municipality of Guayaquil that was created considering that there was a space in the world of beauty pageants that had not been organized globally in the country. Misses chosen as official representatives of each country and who attend the most important beauty events in the world participate in this pageant: Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss Earth, Miss International, among others.

Last year, Anairis Cadavid Ardila from Colombia was crowned as Miss United Continents 2019 giving Colombia the second victory in the history of this contest.
