Miss Europe is a popular regional beauty pageant among female contestants from the nations of the European continent established in 1928 and re-established at the end of World War II by Roger Zeiler of the French Committee of Elegance and Claude Berr. Most contestants won their respective national contests for Miss Universe, Miss World, and Miss Earth and participated as supplemental training for their respective competitions. If the titleholders have not succeeded in winning their international titles, titleholders eventually compete for the Miss Europe crown, such as the case of France's Elodie Gossuin who placed in the Top 10 at Miss Universe 2001 yet won the Miss Europe title in the subsequent year. The license to the pageant passed on to Dutch production company Endemol in 2003.
