The state pageants for Miss World Brazil 2012 have already began, and the winner in Rio Grande do Sul was Luciane Escouto, from the city of São Leopoldo. She is 24 years old, 1.86 m-tall, and plays volleyball in the state of Minas Gerais. Mackenzie, the team which she defends, was the runner-up in the recently concluded 2011 Minas Gerais’ championship.
The 1st runner-up was Tamara Costa, who will represent Ilha da Pintada in Miss World Brazil next year. Fernanda Duarte, the 2nd runner-up, is the new Miss World Ilha dos Lobos, and will also compete in the national pageant.
The new Miss World Rio Grande do Sul succeeded Juceila Bueno, who in 2011 went on to become Miss World Brazil and a Miss World quarter-finalist (top 30). Luciane won a brand new car, a trip to Disney World with both runner-ups, and signed a contract with Pampa TV.
After Juceila’s success in 2011, over 5500 entries applied to compete in the preliminary rounds of Miss World Rio Grande do Sul 2012.
Miss World Brazil 2012 will be crowned on May 5th, at the Portobelo Resort & Safari, in Mangaratiba, Rio de Janeiro.
