The pageant's top 16 semifinalists competed on both swimsuit and evening gown competitions to determine the top eight semifinalists, the first time since 2003. In the last round of the contest, the question-and-answer portion, the eight remaining delegates were shown images which depicted destructions of Mother Nature and asked for their impressions. At the end of the competition, the outgoing titleholder, Miss Earth 2008, Karla Henry of the Philippines, crowned Larissa Ramos of Brazil as her successor.
The Miss Earth 2009 theme was "Green Lifestyle", in which the candidates were involved with environmental causes. The show was hosted by Marc Nelson, Sarah Meier and Borgy Manotoc.
For the 9th edition of Miss Earth, no single final question was asked. Instead, images were flashed on screen and each of the eight finalists were tasked to tell something about it.
Statement of Miss Earth 2009: "I come from a country that has the largest rainforest in the world, and it is also known as the 'lungs of the world'. But we cannot just say that we are the 'lungs of the world' because my country produces a lot of air pollution as well." - Larissa Ramos, represented Brazil.
