So far the overall winners have only been from he Netherlands.
The current Queen of the benelux is Jeannine Ottenhof, who went to the Miss Earth pageant last year representing Aruba.
Many girls from the Netherlands enter this pageant and therefore the organization divided the Netherlands in 4 regions: Queen of the North, South, West and East.
