A 25-year-old model and video vixen Marie Miller has been crowned the overall winner of the 2013 Miss Earth Beauty pageant.

The new queen was crowned during the show's finale on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at the Oriental Hotel, Lekki, Lagos.

The third and second runners-up, Amarachi Uwakwe and Damilola Akinsanya, also won an award for Miss Amity, while the first runner-up, Bibowei Kiri Tessy, won the prize for Best Swim Suit.

Judges for the beauty contest include American model and socialite, Amber Rose, American actor, Boris Kodjoe, and actress, Karlie Redd. Others were Nollywood star, Ini Edo, and photographer Kelechi Amadi-Obi.

Co-hosted by actor Joseph Benjamin and Tolu Adeniru, the event saw performances from Nigeria's finest entertainers, Dbanj and Timi Dakolo, as well as comedy from Julius Agwu and Funny Bone.

Present at the event were notable players from the Nigerian entertainment industry- the national director for Nigeria to the Miss Earth and president of the Actors' Guild of Nigeria, Ibinabo Fiberesima, actors Ejike Asiegbu, Fred Amata, and Segun Arinze.

Others are President of the Association of Movie Producers, Nigeria, Zik Zulu Okafor, producers Lancelot Imasuen, Charles Novia, Fidelis Duker, Gbenga Adeyinka, amongst others.

Apart from her crown, the new queen walks home with a brand new 2013 Toyota Avensis in addition to a N3m one year salary. She will also represent Nigeria at the Miss Earth pageant (World) scheduled to hold later on this year.

Miller represented Nigeria in the 2011 edition of Miss Model beauty pageant held in Instabul, Turkey.
