Is this the contest controlled by Mr. Trump? Or is that Miss International? Or Miss Universe?

I'm amazed this is still going! Does anyone actually watch it? What does it mean. It's certainly hasn't been relevant in the UK for decades!

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.

Oh and I forgot the UK is the world. Guess thats why they'll be invading Ecuador soon.

It actually gets high viewing figures in China, India, South America and parts of Europe that are not the UK.

Compared to Miss Universe its rather stale but I'll try and watch anyhow.

Is this a week long event? It was held in a retractable roof stadium with a capacity crowd of 40,000.

Opening ceremony in Ordos City Dongsheng district!

In Ordos, seriously?

Maybe they can fill some of their massive ghost town with the Miss World Contestants.

Will be rooting for Miss China since Venezuala is pretty underwhelming this year.

I'm sure the entire country of the Philippines will be freaking out per usual. Only country I know of where pageants generate more buzz than sporting events.
