Palmira can boast of winning the Miss Globe Oaxaca 2019 state competition and Miss Global México 2019 nationwide pageant!
During the Miss Global 2019/2020 final Palmira was promoted to TOP 25 and TOP 11. Unfortunately, she did not reach to the final five.
After the announcement of TOP 5, one of the Mexican organizers was entered to the stage. The man interrupted the final claiming that the main organizer was manipulating the results. A scandal broke out. Unfortunately, this whole situation made Palmira a victim of gossip. There were voices that the angry sponsor had interrupted the competition because the Mexican representative had not advanced to the final five. What’s more, some candidates, led by Miss Colombia said that the Mexican woman had been explicitly favored by the organizers from the beginning. They reported that she had her own make-up artist and distanced herself from other girls. It was even suggested that the Mexican sponsor demanded that Palmira win the competition or be in the TOP 5!
Both the Mexican organizers and Palmira Ruíz denied these shocking reports. However, they confirmed that at the finals took place the fraud, claiming that all responsibility was borne by the main organizer of the competition – Van Pham. Their version was supported by some participants, including Miss Argentina.
