It was meant to be one of the glamorous side events of the 1st TBTK that was held in Bohol back in July 1999 but instead turned out to be one of the most attended not only for the captivating girls onstage but off the stage as well. It was so successful that there were so many patrons who were not able to enter the jampacked standing room- only event.

Named the 1999 Miss Bohol International was Chan Retutas Cajegas, a tall and svelte Physical Therapy student from the University of Bohol and representing the Boholanos of Eastern USA. Chan was crowned in July 1999 by no less than Miriam Quiambao fresh from her victory as 1999 Miss Universe 1st Runner Up and then Bohol Governor, Rene Lopez Relampagos.
Her Runners Up were Paulette Bolofer, Miss Michigan, 1st Runner Up, Theresa Cumba, Miss Illinois, 2nd Runner Up, Bambi Evardone, Miss Bohol, 3rd Runner Up & Louella Pantoja, Miss Loon, 4th Runner Up.
