The event, edition number 41, started at 8:00pm Friday at the Teletica studios (channel 7) in La Sabana.

This year there were only nine instead of the usual ten finalists, Stephanie Rostrán, dropped out in support of an action against Donal Trump and his statements of Mexican emigrants.

In addition to a crown valued at ¢ 3 million, the new Miss Costa Rica will get a brand new car, and ¢5 million colones in cash (the highest in the history of the competition), but, may not get the big prize, a shot at the Miss Universe crown.


Teletica, who has held the franchise since 1954, has said it will not participate in the international event unless Mr. Trump apologizes for his statements or is no longer with the Miss Universe organization.
