Miss Thailand Maria Poonlertlarp was in tears as she addressed her beloved country after failing to win the Miss Universe crown.

Maria was a top contender in the competition. She was included in almost all forecast and predictions as a favorite. She even topped the official Miss Universe scorecard prior to the coronation night. She reached top 5 but struggled with the Q&A portion. Her Miss Universe journey ended when she failed to reach the top 3.

Hours after the coronation night, Maria went on Facebook live to send her appreciation to all the support she received. A crying Maria can be seen speaking in Thai, saying: “The show just finished and I’d like to thank you everyone for all the support you’ve given me. I’m delighted that you believe in me but a bit disappointed that I was not able to do what you expected from me.”

“I did my very best hopefully you guys are really happy with the show. Thank you so much for supporting me and showing your spirit, and for those who came to the show in Las Vegas. I was hoping we could show the world something new from us but thank you!”

Maria also disclosed that she will be joining other Miss Universe contestants for a vacation in the Philippines before going back to Bangkok.
