Michelle Huet will represent Ecuador at Miss international 2018, which will be held in Yokohama, Japan on November 9, 2018. Huet was crowned Miss Ecuador International 2018 on May 5, 2018, at the Hotel Oro Verde de Machala. Leading up to the Miss Ecuador pageant, Huet, a model from Guayaquil, was not considered a fan favorite. However, once the judges were captivated by her evening gown and interview performance, she became a frontrunner.
At the 2018 Miss Ecuador pageant, which selects Ecuador's representative for Miss Universe, Huet placed as the 1st Runner-Up. Because of her placement, Huet was chosen to represent Ecuador at the Miss International Pageant. In addition to winning the title of Miss Ecuador International 2018, Huet was given the special award of Miss Punctuality.
Huet is a beauty pageant contestant who has admitted to undergoing cosmetic surgery. Most specifically, Huet underwent a rhinoplasty. She has expressed wishes to go back under the knife before competing at the 58th Miss International pageant. She explained that a "small touch-up" would help with her comfort and confidence. She isn't shy about hiding this experience either, as Huet explained that she will provide "step by step" information about the process on social media.
