Miss Earth Venezuela 2013 is VENEZUELA's Rep for MISS EARTH 2016! Stephanie de Zorzi

Finally! Stephanie de Zorzi will now represent her country at the Miss Earth 2016 finals in Manila, Philippines.

Stephanie de Zorzi represented state of Aragua at 2013 Miss Venezuela pageant where she won the crown of Miss Venezuela Tierra 2013 (Miss Earth Venezuela 2013). She won alongside with Migbelis Castellanos for Miss Universe in 2014 and Michelle Bertolini as the country's representative for Miss International 2014.

A month away for Miss Earth 2014 finals she was dethroned as Miss Earth Venezuela 2013 by the Miss Venezuela Organization. Stephanie was supposed to fly to the Philippines in November to compete with almost 100 other candidates to be Alyz Henrich's successor, but on November 3, 2014, Miss Venezuela Organization decided not to let her compete. Sources state that after a modeling job in Mexico she returned to Venezuela with a few more pounds. Osmel Sousa, the president of the Miss Venezuela Organization, did not think she was at the right weight to go off and represent Venezuela at the Miss Earth 2014 pageant. She was replaced by Miss Earth Venezuela 2014 Maira Rodríguez (Miss Earth Water 2014) who was originally set to compete the following year.

However, Osmel Sousa, Miss Venezuela head, clarified that de Zorzi was not dethroned as she was able to finish her reign as Miss Earth Venezuela.

El Nacional newspaper in Caracas reported  that “unofficially” Miss Earth 2013 Alyz Henrich from Venezuela is the new franchise owner of Miss Earth in Venezuela as Miss Venezuela Organization won’t be sending a delegate this year because of crisis.

The decision took place after Venevision decided that only ONE winner will be crowned in Miss Venezuela 2016 on Wednesday, and she will go to Miss Universe. Due to the financial crisis in the country, the organization will not crown any other queens for 2017's international pageant.
