Miss Colombia (Formally Concurso Nacional de Belleza de Colombia, English: "National Beauty Contest of Colombia") is the national beauty pageant organization in Colombia.

The national director for Colombia is Raimundo Angulo Pizarro.

Pageant rules[edit]

Colombia has rigid and strict rules regarding participation of any Miss Universe preliminary aspirant: once a contestant registers for the pageant, she is confined to her own Department and cannot move or relocate to other states/provinces. However, she can participate more than once for the same department. As example, the winner of 2003 had already come in fourth place at the Miss Valle pageant the year before she won and eventually went on to win the national title and crown.

Initially, the pageant's winners held the title for six months period; Yolanda Emiliani Roman, Miss Colombia 1934, held her title for the longest reign in the pageant's history. The winner of Senorita Colombia represents her country at Miss Universe. On occasion, when the winner does not qualify (such as due to age) for either contest, a runner-up finalist is selected by the national director and sent.

Controversies[edit]

David Letterman on Miss Colombia[edit]

In May 2001, David Letterman joked about the 'special talent' which the then-reigning Miss Colombia Andrea Noceti possessed – that she was able to "swallow 50 balloons full of heroin" for the (non-existent) talent competition in the Miss Universe 2001 pageant. The remark not only infuriated the beauty queen, but also the people in Colombia.[6]

Miss Colombia openly threatened to sue Letterman but later withdrawn the statement after Letterman formally apologised to her in the Late Show with David Letterman about the quip made. Letterman had invited the beauty queen to appear on his show as a gesture of appeasement.[7]

Sponsors[edit]

Some of the Miss Colombia Beauty Contest include jewelries like Joyeria Casareo and André Laurent Joyeria, media companies like RCN TV and Cromos Magazine and beauty companies like Jolie de Vogue and Leonisa. [8]
