The wait for this year's Miss Tiffany's Universe 2013 is finally over, as 22-year-old Netnapada ‘Neck’ Kalyanon was crowned the winner of the ladyboy beauty pageant last night in Pattaya.
Nong Neck garnered the most votes from the expert panel of judges and will go home with a Miss Tiffany's Universe sash; a trophy; a Honda Jazz; THB120,000 in cash; and a diamond-encrusted tiara worth THB500,000.
Not bad for a night's work.
Nong Neck also took the Best Costume prize for a black and white evening dress that she designed herself.
Chananchida ‘Blossom’ Rungpetcharat nabbed the first runner-up prize (THB100,000 in cash + gift vouchers) and the prestigious Miss Silky Sexy Skin title, while Sopida ‘Ning’ Rachanon got second runner-up (THB70,000 + vouchers) and the very honorable title of Miss Kiss Sexy Star.
