Miss Universe Thailand 2017 crowned

Online reporters

25-year-old Mareeya Poonlertlarp, a half-Thai, half-Swedish model, was crowned Miss Universe Thailand 2017 at Siam Paragon Hall on Saturday night.

183cm tall, the postgraduate in marketing from the Stockholm Business School is said to be fluent in four languages – Thai, Swedish, English and Mandarin. She won 1 million baht, a diamond tiara and a car, as well as the trophy.

She is now set to represent Thailand at the international Miss Universe 2017 pageant in Las Vegas this coming November.

First runner-up Supaporn Litiphruek received half a million baht, and joint second runners-up Suraphuen Artkongharn, Ratchanok Nawaset and Paweensuda Du-uen each pocketed 150,000 baht.

Chalita Suansane, Miss Universe Thailand 2016, was also on stage.  Chalita finished in the top six in the global Miss Universe competition – Thailand’s greatest success since Porntip Nakhirankanok won the Miss Universe title back in 1988.
