Miss Earth 2004, the 4th edition of Miss Earth pageant, took place on 24 October 2004 at the University of the Philippines Theater in Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines. Dania Prince of Honduras crowned her successor Pricilla Meirelles of Brazil at the end of the event.[1]

The 21-year-old medical student from Brazil, Priscilla Meirelles, who stands 5’ 8" and has a 35"-24"-35" figure, won the coveted title, and with her win, Brazil became the first country to capture all of the four major international pageants, namely Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International, and Miss Earth.[1][2]

Miss Martinique Murielle Celimene, an 18-year-old student, was crowned Miss Air, the pageant’s equivalent to first runner-up. The last two titles— Miss Water and Miss Fire (second and third runners-up, respectively) —were won by Miss Tahiti Kahaya Lusazh (English name: Stephanie Lesage) and Miss Paraguay Yanina Gonzalez. Miss Paraguay was early crowd favorite who maintained her composure when she almost fell off the stage after she broke her shoe’s heels after the long gown competition.

The winners were chosen by the 11-person board of judges who included last year’s Miss Earth’s Beauty for a Cause awardee, Vida Samadzai, Noel Lorenzana of Unilever Philippines, Stefan Voogel of InterContinental Manila, Kit Ti LIan of Avon Color, Lorraine Timbol of Media Arts Systems and Services Co., Regina Paz Lopez of ABS-CBN Foundation, Chin Chin Gutierrez, actress and staunch advocate of environmental concerns, international singer-actor Leo Valdez, Deborah Landey of the United Nations Development Programme, Freddie Garcia of ABS-CBN, and Department of Trade and Industry Secretary Cesar Purisima.

Organized and launched in 2001 by Carousel Productions, Miss Earth serves as a catalyst in promoting environmental advocacy worldwide. Its slogan, "Beauties For A Cause".[3]

Winning answer[edit]

Final Question in Miss Earth 2004: "On a quiet night, you could hear the sounds of nature talking to you. What do you think is its message and what would you like to tell it back?"

Winning Answer of Miss Earth 2004: "What I can hear is that nature is saying that love is missing. Because people don't respect each other, they don't respect the nature, they don't respect life. That's why nature is reacting to everything that people do to her. Who suffer is us, humankind. And love is what would solve our problem" - Priscilla Meirelles, represented Brazil.[4]
