Another South American country is left without a miss! This time is Joyce Prado Ribera – Miss Bolivia 2018 and participant in Miss Universe 2018, who was dethroned because of pregnancy! Representatives of Promociones Gloria, the modeling agency which is the organizer of Miss Bolivia elections, announced that the winner of the beauty contest loses the crown because she violated the terms of the contract signed with them.
As you know, the winners of beauty contests must be unmarried, childless ladies throughout their reign. Pregnancy, in which 22-year-old Joyce Prado Ribera has entered, prevents her from continuing to perform the duties of Miss Bolivia and is a violation of the terms of the contract, which the winner signed with the organizers.
Accordingly, representatives of the modeling agencies Promociones Gloria, which is the organizer of the Miss Santa Cruz and Miss Bolivia elections, decided that Joyce Prado Ribera lost the title to the most beautiful Bolivian woman.
Joyce Prado won the national competition in June last year. In December she represented Bolivia in Miss Universe 2018 in Thailand.

We also know that until this year’s final, no one will perform the duties of Miss Bolivia. At the beginning of July we will get to know the new beauty queen and representative of the country in Miss Universe 2019.
