  • India's Esha Gupta is India's top fashion model, was a favorite for the crown. Though she did not even make to the semi-finals. She has a striking resemblance with Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie. Her Wardrobe was considered a big disaster causing her failure in the contest.
  • For the 10th time only in the history of the Miss Hong Kong pageant, the second runner-up does not compete at Miss International. Usually the second runner-up of the national pageant competes at Miss International but the organizers of the pageant, TVB, chose Grace Wong Kwan-hing, first runner-up of Miss Hong Kong 2007 to compete. The first runner-up of the pageant usually competes at Miss World and this is only the 4th time that the first runner-up competes at Miss International.
  • After the pageant, delegates were busy taking photos. One of the delegates were Miss Hong Kong, Grace Wong who forgot her Miss Friendship award at the pageant after giving the award to a Tokyo chaperone. She did not realize that until she arrived in Hong Kong and the Miss International Organization has to mail the award back to Hong Kong.
  • Miss Japan International 2007, Hisako Shirata crowned her successor, Kyoko Ayamen at same time who competed at Miss International 2007.
  • Yulia Sindzeyeva (Belarus) was 4th runner-up at Miss Europe 2006 and was supposed to compete at Miss World 2007. However due to contracts with Miss International Organization prevent Sindyezeva to compete in Miss World so she will not be in the pageant.
