Chile was supposed to host the 2006 Miss Earth pageant, but because some requirements were not fulfilled by the organizers in Chile. “The Chilean organizers could not confirm the venue of the pageant, hotel accommodations for the participants and the television station that would broadcast the event.” explained Carousel project director Peachy Veneracion.
Until June, Chile was still listed as host. But by September, when basic requirements remained unmet, Carousel officials decided to pull the pageant out of the deal and back to the Philippines, where it had been staged for the last five years.
