Note: Unlike other pageants, there was no "runner-up" in Miss Earth 2010. Instead the titles of Miss Air, Miss Water, and Miss Fire are bestowed on the next three contestants with highest scores after the Miss Earth winner. In this case, the titles went to Miss Ecuador, Jennifer Pazmiño, Miss Thailand, Watsaporn Wattanakoon and Miss Puerto Rico, Yeidy Bosques, respectively.[2]

Note: Victoria Schukina was appointed the new Miss Earth Air 2010 after Jennifer Pazmino, the original Miss Earth Air 2010, relinquished her crown due to marriage to her fiancee in February.[7]
