History[edit]

Miss El Salvador (1972 – 2005)[edit]

Miss El Salvador 2005: Irma Dimas

Miss El Salvador was the organization in charge of choosing the representative to Miss Universe and Miss World. The organization since its birth sent a representative to Miss Universe (except in 1980) and Miss World (from 1975–1993, when the organization lost the franchise.) The organization was headed by Mr. Eddie Gonzalez, who was the committed to put El Salvador at the international mark. The format of the competition was based on a representative from each of the 14 departments in the country. During the 1980s due to the Salvadorian Civil War situation, thanks to the special permission granted by The Miss Universe Organization, the representative was chosen behind closed doors. This continued till 1995 when they resumed the national competition.

In 2005, the organization had problems renewing the franchise and lost it.

Nuestra Belleza El Salvador[edit]

In 2004, Telecorporacion Salvadorena acquired the franchise for Miss World, and in 2006 acquired the franchise for Miss Universe. The pageant was renamed Nuestra Belleza El Salvador and held two separate pageants to select the delegates to Miss Universe and Miss World. In 2010, the format changed as in that year they decided to select the two representatives in just one pageant. The pageant is open to any girls throughout the whole country. They choose the finalists via casting specials and the contestants are not required to have won a department title, which was the traditional way until 2005. In 2017, the licensee of Miss Universe was given to Reinado de El Salvador.

Color key
  •      Declared as Winner
  •      Ended as runner-up
  •      Ended as one of the finalists or semifinalists

The official winner of Nuestra Belleza El Salvador competed at the Miss Universe pageant between 2006 - 2017. On occasion, when the winner did not qualify (due to age) for either contest, a runner-up was sent. In 1954 and 1955 the representatives were handpicked, with the exception in 1981, where the winner was sent to Miss World. In 2006, Nuestra Belleza El Salvador acquired the Miss Universe franchise and started crowning two titleholders, one for Miss Universe and another for Miss World, in separate pageants until 2010 when the pageants were merged. Since 2010, two titleholders were crowned at the same event. But in 2017, the organization gave up the franchise license of Miss Universe and only one titleholder would be crowned to compete at Miss World.
