Miss Puerto Rico wins Miss InterContinental 2010!

This year's pageant was held at the popular cruise stop-over of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. A worthy destination as this pageant first began on the beautiful beaches of Aruba to promote tourism in 1971. In it 39th year, the pageant has grown to have more than 65 contestants from 5 continents. Contestants spend almost two weeks getting to know one another, rehearsing and competing in various activities. The finale this year was on November 6th. 19 year old, Maydelise Columna, a student from Puerto Rico was announced the winner. One of the prizes is a specially made platinum crown with 720 diamonds said to be worth $360,000. Unfortunately, they have to give it up at the end of the year!
