Miss Earth 2006, the sixth edition of Miss Earth pageant, took place on 26 November 2006 at the grounds of the National Museum in Manila, Philippines. The pageant was won by Hil Hernández of Chile and crowned by outgoing titleholder, Miss Earth 2005, Alexandra Braun.[1]

The event was originally intended to be held in Santiago, Chile on 15 November, but the Chilean organizers did not meet requirements.[2][3] In the end, pageant owners Carousel Productions decided to hold the pageant in the Philippines, where all previous Miss Earth pageants had been held, despite having less than two months to prepare for the event.[4]

More than 100 contestants were expected to compete, but only 82 eventually participated. Nevertheless, it was still the highest turn-out for the event.[1][5]

On 24 November, a number of delegates participated in the Philippine version of Deal or No Deal, acting as suitcase models during the game.[2] This followed an episode of the US game show, where 26 Miss USA 2006 contestant acted as suitcase models.[6]
