Miss Tiffany's Universe 2011 Is...

I am way late with this post.  Slipped my mind when May rolled around that it was Miss Tiffany's Universe pageant time in Pattaya and needed to do my annual 'who won it' post.   Another reason I was probably distracted from it because it was held May 2-6.

That's my birthday week people, so cut me some slack. 

Well, time to stop make excuses for why my Miss Tiffany's post is popping up on the blog in late July and get to it.  The envelope please..

The winner of Miss Tiffany's Universe 2011 is 10 year old Sirapasson “Sammy” Atthayakorn, a third year student at the Faculty of Humanities, Ramkhamhaeng University.  She won the diamond studded tiara, 120,000 baht ($4014 USD).  a Toyota Yaris car and use of a luxury pattaya apartment for a year.

The first runner-up was 23-year-old student Saranrat “Nat” Chaiyakorn, took home 100,000 baht ($3345 USD) while second runner-up, Tissanamadi “Gigi” Bunniyom, won 20,000 baht. ($670 USD)

The Miss Tiffany's Universe is the Thai-only trans pageant in which the finals night is not only televised live on Thai television, it chooses the person who will represent Thailand at the Miss International Queen Pageant.

That pageant like the Miss Tiffany's Universe one is also sponsored by Tiffany's Cabaret and opened to the rest of the world's transwomen. 

And oh yeah, the winner and runners-up of Miss Tiffany Universe as you noticed get cash and prizes.. In addition to Sammy getting the diamond studded crown and the cash and prize package, she will represent Thailand in the upcoming Miss International Queen pageant scheduled to take place November 4.   

We'll find out in a few months if Sammy has what it takes to bring the Miss International Queen crown back to Thailand after being captured by Japanese and Korean winners the last two years.
