National pageant notes[edit]

Returning countries and territories[edit]

Replacements[edit]

  •  Guatemala – Alejandra Barillas was Miss Universe Guatemala 2010 until she injured her left foot in an accident. This stopped her from participating in the pageant. She was replaced by one of her runners-up, Jessica Scheel. She competed 1 year later at Miss Universe 2011.
  •  Romania – Alexandra Catalina Filip was Miss Universe Romania 2010 but 1st Runner-up, Oana Paveluc, represented Romania instead.
  •  Turkey – Turkey sent Miss Turkey World 2010, Gizem Memic, because its Miss Universe 2010, Serenay Sarikaya, was below 18 and did not meet the age requirement.

Withdrawals[edit]

  •  Bulgaria – The Miss Bulgaria Organization did not send a representative to compete in Miss Universe 2010.
  •  Cayman Islands – On September 8, 2009, it was announced that the Miss Cayman Islands 2009 contest would not take place due to lack of funding and sponsorship. Since the winner of that contest also competes in Miss World, there was no Caymanian representative to Miss World 2009 either.[5]
  •  Estonia – Valeri Kirss, Estonia’s national director, was selling the Eesti Miss Estonia pageant.
  •  Ethiopia
  •  Iceland
  •  Montenegro - Original contestant Nikolina Lončar was not allowed to participate because she was only 16 at the time of her crowning. She later participated in Miss Universe 2011.[6]
  •  Namibia – Miss Namibia 2010, Odile Gertze, was crowned on July 31, 2010. Since that was only one week from the official start of Miss Universe 2010, national director Connie Maritz decided not to send the winner to Miss Universe but to Miss World 2010 instead.
  •  Turks & Caicos
  •  Vietnam – Vietnam did not have a representative this year. They officially withdrew from the pageant.[7]
