Miss International 2012, the 52nd Miss International pageant, was held on October 21, 2012 at Okinawa Prefectural Budokan Arena Building in Okinawa, Japan. Fernanda Cornejo from Ecuador crowned her successor Ikumi Yoshimatsu from Japan at the end of the event.[1]

Yoshimatsu was dethroned shortly before the end of her reign, but she was not replaced.[2][3][4] She was ordered by The International Culture Association (Miss International organizer) to skip the succession ceremony and “play sick and shut up” out of fear of scandal.[5]

Background[edit]

On June 8, 2012, it was announced during a Facebook conferenced by Akemi Shimomura, the president of the International Cultural Association, that the 2012 pageant will be held in Okinawa Prefectural Budokan Arena Building, Naha, Okinawa, Japan on October 21, 2012.[6]
