21-year-old beauty representing San Juan, Nellys Pimentel, won Miss Earth Puerto Rico 2019 in a competition held at the Ambassador Theater in San Juan on Sunday, May 5. She was crowned last year’s titleholder Krystal Xamairy.
The event was hosted by Joe Amhed together with former Miss Earth Puerto and now national director Vanessa De Roide.
Nellys is a marketing and psychology student. Aside from the crown worth $5,000 and the right to represent Puerto Rico at the Miss Earth 2019 pageant later this year, she also took home prices from various sponsors.
Nine contestants competed for this year’s coveted national title.
