Goldman will vie in the international search for the ultimate model, where a Filipina Michelle de Leon succeeded the title in 2006 after the titleholder from Brazil Natália Guimarães resigned to take part in the 2007 Miss Universe. The pageant started in 1993 in Miami, organized by the Globana Group. It is now owned and managed by the World Beauty Organization.

Top Model of the World is now in its 27th edition. The pageant is going to be held at Meraki Resort in Hurghada, Egypt. The Philippines hopes to produce another Filipina to win the prestigious title in the person of Goldman. The current titleholder is Janet Leyva of Peru.
