Puteri Indonesia 2018: Meet The Candidates
Puteri Indonesia 2018 will be the 22nd edition of the Puteri Indonesia pageant which is slated to take place on March 9, 2018 in Jakarta, Indonesia. During the conclusion of the pageant, Bunga Jelitha of Jakarta Special Capital Region 5 will crown her successor as the new Miss Universe Indonesia, who will then represent Indonesia at Miss Universe 2018 wherein Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa will crown her successor as next Miss Universe.
Indonesia has been participating in Miss Universe consistently since 2004 and has placed five times in the semi-finals since then. Indonesia has won one Miss Grand International crown and one Miss International crown under the representation of Ariska Putri Pertiwi in 2016 and Kevin Lilliana in 2017 respectively. The country is yet to win its first Miss Universe crown.
Although Puteri Indonesia will send its representatives to Miss Universe 2018 and Miss International 2018, rumors are doing the round that the national pageant no longer holds the franchise of Miss Grand International pageant. However, no official confirmation has been made regarding this either from the Miss Grand International Organization side or the Puteri Indonesia Organization.
