Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, casting for Miss Nederland 2020 (Miss Netherlands) was held at the Winter Garden of Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam last month with safety precautions in place.
Ten beautiful, spontaneous, and intelligent young women were chosen as official finalists to take part in various training courses and workshops in catwalk, sports, presentation, and grooming.
The final competition will be held on Monday, August 31, and the finalists’ journey to the crown can be watched on “Op Jacht Naar De Kroon” (On the hunt for the crown) over RTL4 every week from September 20.
Miss Nederland is not just about world peace or glitz and glamor. It is a search for the most beautiful girl with a combination of beauty and brain who can be a role model for many young girls in the country.
Sharon Pieksma, the reigning titleholder from Rotterdam, will crown her successor who will represent the Netherlands in the next edition of the Miss Universe competition.
Meet the 10 official finalists:
Roos Sophie van Twisk
