These Big 4 Alpha pageants don't have to self-proclaim itself as a top pageant nor they speak ill of the other pageants that have long existed before them. They just simply let the world, the earth or the universe rather to recognise and praise them as the best and most prestigious beauty derbies.
And among of the hundreds of countries which take part in the Big 4 Alpha pageants annually, there are 5 of them which stood out exceedingly and have managed to achieve the highest number of wins.
Let's begin with Puerto Rico in the 5th Place.

Puerto Rico might be one of the smallest territories in the world but this Caribbean archipelago certainly boasts an impressive 5 Miss Universe wins apart from Miss International and Miss World in which they have scored 2 victories each.
