Miss Philippines Emerges as Winner of the Miss World Crown in Bali Indonesia

Posted in: , ,

The new Miss World has just been crowned in Bali, Indonesia and it is Miss Philippines, 23 Year Old Megan Young, an actress, TV presenter and aspiring filmmaker. Miss France and Miss Ghana were second and third runners up. Many people were rooting for another African Miss World especially Miss South Sudan who was among the top 10 contestants. See their pictures below...

PS - Miss World contestants usually compete in the swimsuit, fitness, world fashion, and talent segments as well as the "Beauty with a Purpose" segment meant to honor charitable work. But many, Muslims in particular, are totally opposed to the idea of beauty pageants including Miss World. When the event was slated to be held in Nigeria, it had to be moved because of religious riots in the north.

They had the same response in Indonesia, a largely Islamic country. There was an attempt to appease religious concerns, with the pageant scrapping the swimsuit competition and replacing it with the less-revealing beach fashion photoshoot [see here]. And the pageant finale which was to have held near Jakarta, were relocated to the island of Bali.

  2. They all loook good, but I'm not a big supporter of beauty contests, half of the ladies are mostly brainless.
