NOTE : The 2013 pageant was originally scheduled for November in Brussels, Belgium. On November 11 the organizer in Brussels had to suddenly undergo major surgery, and the venue changed to Bulgaria.  The contestants who already purchased travel tickets were not reimbursed.  Therefore fewer contestants than usual showed up for the pageant in Bulgaria.
