Last year proved to be a great year for The Netherlands at the Mister and Miss Supranational pageant, last one held for the 10th year.
The Netherlands placed for the second year at the Miss Supranational pageant. In 2016, Milenka Jansen was the first Dutch girl to enter the top 25, placing 24th over-all.
Kelly van den Dungen who entered her second grand-slam pageant in two years represent our country last year and became the second girl from The Netherlands to become a top 25 semi-finalist, placing 15th over-all.
Ennio Fafieanie, Mister Supranational Netherlands was a front-runner from the moment he was crowned last year at the Miss and Mister 12 Months of Beauty finals in Vinkeveen.
After the top 20 placement for Ferdi Caglayan in 2018, Ennio made it to the top 5 and placed 4th runner-up. Although many believed he should have been the winner, everybody was very proud of this historical achievement.
About one month ago Robin and Stefan of 12 Months of Beauty were asked by the Miss Supranational organization if they were able to welcome Valeria Vasques Latorre, Miss Supranational 2018 from Puerto Rico to The Netherlands.
Of course the two said yes and they also decided to appoint Miss and Mister Supranational Netherlands for 2019 so Valeria could crown and sash the new queen and king during her visit.
On april 14th at Floor17 at the Ramada Apollo Hotel in Amsterdam the world would meet with the Supra Team Netherlands 2019.
Miss Supranational Netherlands 2019, who was crowned and sashed by Valeria and Kelly, is Nathalie Mogbledzada.
Nathalie is with her 21 years, already a veteran in the dutch pageant scene. She was crowned Miss Teen of Noord Holland and also Miss Tourism Queen International in 2015. Because of her wining Miss Tourism Queen International she stayed for one year in China, where she also studied Chinese.
In 2017 she represented The Netherlands at her first grand-slam pageant, the Miss International, where she was a big favorite to make the cut but in the end just missed the semi-finals.
After the big success of Ennio last year at the international pageant, this year the dutch flag wil be represented by a policeman from Amsterdam: Mitch Hart.
Already in 2014, Robin and Stefan scouted him at the gym where one group of finalists of the 12 Months of Beauty 2014 pageant were trained by him on behalf of the personal coach of the queens and kings for 12 Months of Beauty: Brian Blijd from Body2Last. But at that time he was too busy to enter.
So Robin and Stefan were very happy when they saw his entry form in the mailbox this year.
The two asked him to represent 12 Months of Beauty, The Netherlands and himself at the up-coming Mister Supranational finals. For Mitch this will be his first international pageant.
At the sashing ceremony all 3 other Supra men from The Netherlands were there to congratulate the new Mister Supranational Netherlands and wish him all the best during his reign.
Again The Netherlands have a very strong Supra-Team this year.
