It is a tradition of Miss Venezuela to crown a delegate to represent them in Miss World. But for the 1st time in history it was not crowned during the national pageant. A separate selection will take place to choose Miss Venezuela Mundo 2013, as the MWO requires a special national titleholder to be sent by each participating country.
