American-Born Thai 1st Runner-Up At Miss World

American-born Thai beauty queen Nicolene Pichapa Limsnukan came so close, yet so far, taking second place at Saturday night’s Miss World pageant in China.

The 20-year-old American-Chinese-Thai Miss Thailand World did capture the title of Miss Asia at the pageant in the tropical resort of Sanya on the island of Hainan.

She finished as runner-up to Mexican model Vanessa Ponce de Leon, 26, who won her bonafides with judges for her social work as a volunteer for “Migrantes en el Camino”, the caravan of Central American migrant refugees targeted by U.S. President Donald Trump, and as a director for a girls rehabilitation center.

Had she finished one place higher last night, Limsnukan would have become Thailand’s first Miss World.

Limsnukan was crowned Miss Thailand World on Sept. 15.

Born in Long Beach, California and raised by a single mother, the 1.7-metre-tall business student at the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce also finished in the Top 10 of the Miss Thailand Universe pageant in June.

She’s been on the pageant treadmill since age 6, winning Miss Thai New Year USA 2014, Miss Teen Asia USA 2015 and, after moving to Bangkok, winning the people’s choice award at June’s Miss Thailand Universe.
