If Palacios keeps going at the rate she is, she may break a Miss Universe record. She has visited 19 countries as of today, per Metro. The list includes Indonesia, China, Thailand, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Brazil, India, the Philippines and Mexico.

The record for the most trips during a Miss Universe reign goes back to 2008. It’s currently held by Venezuelan Dayana Mendoza who won in 2008. She visited 30 destinations as queen, according to Metro.

So the beauty queen, who recently showed off her style in Monaco, is just 12 countries away from breaking the record.

Palacios has almost three months to make it happen. The 73rd Miss Universe pageant is coming up fast on September 28, 2024, in Mexico City. This will be Mexico’s first time hosting the pageant since 2007.

The last place Palacios was in was Bolivia, where she visited CERNIQUEM, a treatment center that offers free treatment for children from low-income families.
