I used to be an die-hard fan of Miss World pageant especially during the time when Philippines made a three-peat streak in 2003-2005.It is the most elusive international beauty pageant to us Filipinos.We have been waiting for a Filipino woman to be crowned Miss World. We almost had the crown last year with the towering beauty Gwen Ruais until it slipped to or Venezuela's head who by the way deserved the crown.To be honest,I wasn't really that ecstatic when Philippines placed in Miss World last year maybe because I lost interest in the beauty pageant itself.I can clearly tell that Miss World is not a very popular pageant here in the Philippines compared to Miss Universe.China is again the host country for the 6th time.Out of 5 Miss World editions in the past which were held in China,only in the year 2005 that China missed the cut.I hate to say this but most of their representatives did not deserve their placements except the Miss World 2007 though her beauty is not my cup of tea.I applaud Miss World though for changing it's format for the selection of semi-finalist,at least it is getting objective compared to the past editions where random girls just make it to the semifinals.
Of Africans in Miss World
It's really a intriguing question whether an African will be finally crowned in Miss World.Back in 2007, Angola was the bomb,I love her face and her stage presence but we all know that the crown was reserved for China that year.In 2010,I still don't understand why Botswana did not win over USA.No offense,but the reign of Miss World 2010 was one of the most boring reign ever in Miss World.Will the host country China ever win an African?
Philippines and China Feud
I really think it's just a conspiracy that Chinese organizers are sabotaging Philippine representatives.My fellow Filipinos should not be over-reactive to little things like Miss Philippines video part being cut because it's really annoying and we act as if only our country deserves to wear the crown.If Philippines will win this year,most of us will then say those were just rumors,but if Philippines will not win,most of us will also say that it's a "COOKING SHOW!".We also need to put in our mind that there are 100 girls competing,and all of them are doing their best to win.
Hot-picks in Missosology
The hot-picks in Missosology is so random.I'm not even sure why it's existing ,when in fact it just clearly showing the name of the country and their faces.Why can't Missosology at least provide some details why these candidates were chosen in the list.In that way,the assessment will be more objective and highly credible.
MISS WORLD is still boring me....no offense...
Why do I yawn whenever I see photos of the activities of Miss World pageant?I can see a lot of beautiful faces but it's really not making me stick to what they're doing.Most of the girls don't have the attitude on stage.I do understand that Miss World is more on the sweet side of a woman but sometimes they really need to make an effort to have an impact to fans.The pageant fans is what makes the pageant more successful.Without us fans,nobody will ever talk about their pageant.At least,they made some effort with creating the Multimedia award which motivated fans to participate and support their respective reps.
THIS BATCH can easily be forgotten....
I remember in the past,I can even recall and memorize some not so known candidates but this year,NADA!I don't remember their names,just their faces.End of story.I also noticed,Julia Morley is less photographed.I miss her CHARITABLE FACE.lol.
I think if Miss World will have a better presentation this year,then the pageant would definitely raised the quality of pageants for the rest of the international pageants especially Miss Universe.I love their stage.I do hope they will crown a beautiful winner with a lot of personality.I also wish that the pageant will not be held in China anymore as the results has become more predictable and uninteresting.
