A Former Miss Earth Candidate Refuses a Miss Intercontinental Crown in Miss Hungary 2013

Korinna Koksis, considered by many the favorite to win the Miss Hungary 2013 title, finished in third place on the contest, but did not accept the crown and title of Miss Hungary Intercontinental 2013. It happened during the live telecast the national pageant held in Budapest. Minutes later, she published on her Facebook page that she did not accept the results because she already knew she would not be placed as one of the two winners (going to Miss World and Miss Universe).
Koksis had also participated in Miss Hungary back in 2009, when she placed third as well and represented her country in Miss Earth in Manila, Philippines.

For refusing the crown, she was replaced by Brigitta Timar.

Meanwhile, Annamária Rákosi, 21, 1.73m-tall, from Debrecen, was the big winner of the night, crowned A Szépségkirálynő 2013, or Miss Hungary 2013. She will compete in Miss World 2013, in Jakarta, Indonesia, in September 28. Annamária has an international experience as she represented Hungary in Miss Supranational 2012 in Warsaw, Poland.

In second place is Rebeka Kárpáti, 18, 1.70 m-tall, from Budapest, was crowned Miss Hungary Universe 2013 and will compete in Miss Universe 2013, in Moscow, Russia, in November 9.
