Special Awards | Miss Earth 2006

Miss Earth 2006, the 6th edition of Miss Earth beauty pageant, took place on November 26, 2006 in the grounds of the National Museum in Manila, Philippines. The pageant was won by Hil Hernández of Chile.

The event was originally intended to be held in Santiago, Chile on November 15, but the Chilean organizers did not meet requirements. In the end, pageant owners Carousel Productions decided to hold the pageant in the Philippines, where all previous Miss Earth pageants had been held, despite having less than two months to prepare for the event.

More than 100 contestants were expected to compete, but only 82 eventually participated. Nevertheless, it was still the highest turn-out for the event.
