Re: Miss World 2013 | Jakarta & Bali, Indonesia - Live Sep 28, 2013

I can't at that global beauties article. Next year the swimsuits will be back and this move is just pandering to devout Muslims. Frankly my big problem with Miss World is its tried to be everything to everyone and flopped. It tries to please Muslims, feminists, Chinese businessmen, and traditional pageant fans.

Miss Universe on the other hand owns the fact it is just a beauty pageants and if certain groups don't like that then they don't have to watch. It does however have the luxury of still being a success in its home market, Miss World has fallen out of favour in the UK mainly thanks to that nanny-state feminism that took over in the late 90s. Just look at how there is a campaign to ban lads mags

I'd frankly rather watch Miss Earth and all its teething problems than watch Miss World. Miss Earth is at least confident in what it is representing and what its message is.

For me Miss Universe is the most relevant pageant, but I'm wondering why Miss World always scores the highest number of candidates every year? I heard this year's Miss World in Indonesia got the record breaking number of countries participating. Around 120 to 130, compared to Miss Universe, which is usually around 70-80 range.

The franchise is much cheaper for Miss World, Miss Universe charge more for countries to entry which is why so many African countries can't afford the fees.

Venezuela turning it up as usual. Hope Ireland can place, we've done pretty alright at Miss World in the last decade. Emma Waldron was totally robbed, even the Chinese crowd wanted her to win

Tunisia looks old but her eyes are amazing.

AFTER 58 YEARS, ISRAEL WILL NOT COMPETE IN MISS WORLD 2013


Miss Israel 2013 will be missed in MW 2013

With a record number of nations participating in Miss World 2013 in Indonesia, 129, one will be highly missed: Israel. This Middle Eastearn country had been taking part year after year in Miss World since 1955. It debuted in 1953, missed the 1954 contest, in London, and competed in all editions of Miss World ever since, up to now.

Earlier this year, Yityish Aynaw, once an Ethiopian orphan, became the first black woman crowned Miss Israel. She made worldwide news and it was announced that she would compete in Miss World 2013. However, her name never appeared in the official Miss World website, and recently the spot reserved for the Israeli representative was removed as well, meaning that the country will not compete in Bali and Jakarta in September. As for Aynaw, she will compete in Miss Universe instead.

Israel is one of the 10 most traditional nations in Miss World history, with 1 winner and 23 placements, including several finalists and runner-ups.

Neither the Miss Israel organziers, nor the MWO, has explained why Israel will be absent from the World beauty stage this year, but the answer might be political: Israel and Indonesia, the host country for Miss World 2013, do not maintain formal diplomatic ties. As it has been happening for many years, Israeli citizens can only get visas for single entry business travel. Tourist visas are available for group travel through travel agencies.

Nonetheless, it is pure speculation at this point, as nothing official has been reported yet.


One thing is for sure: Israel will be missed in Miss World 2013.

Other ‘Missing Misses’

Other nations with some Miss World tradition will also be missed in this year’s contest, like for example, Grenada, which has one Miss World winner, from the year 1970. Egypt, a country which has been suffering with political turmoil, won’t be seen either competing in Indonesia. Let’s remember that in 1954 Egypt won the Miss World crown. And then there’s Lebanon, a country that has not had a Miss World winner yet, but which had not missed a single edition since the early 1990′s.

But as they say, the show must go on, and Miss World will do it with pomp and cirscumstance, after all, 129 participating countries is an impressive record by any main international beauty pageant.

Welcome To Miss World 2013 Indonesia!

02 September 2013



With the arrival of our first guest, Miss World 2013 has officially begun!

Arriving in the early hours of the morning, Malta’s Donna Borg Leyland was the first contestant to arrive at the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort, our home for the next week!

After a much needed rest, we caught up with an excited Malta to see how she was settling in."I'm Finally here." she said. "The people here are so nice, its great to be already meeting some of the contestants.. I think i am falling in love with the place already."



When asked what she was most looking forward to, she said "To the adventure, to everything that we will be doing."

Later this evening Jamaica’s Gina Hargitay was the second contestant to arrive. Looking forward to the coming weeks, Gina says she is “Extremely excited….. It’s a very new experience for me. I’ve never been to this side of Asia let alone this side of the World before. It’s a beautiful country. It reminds me a lot of home, apart from the architecture which is very different. I am looking forward to seeing more of the country especially the temple visit.”



When asked about what she is looking forward to the most, she said “Learning from all the other girls, learning about all the other cultures, and immersing myself in the whole experience.”

Our third arrival of the day was Loraine Quinto of Guatemala. She said that her chance to be at Miss World was "A dream come true. My mother was a participant at Miss Guatemala in 1986. Unfortunately she did not win, but it is great for me to be able to enter now, she is so proud. I am looking forward to the experience of my life."



Located on the dramatic coastline of south west Bali, with breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean and picturesque sunsets, the Nirwana Bali Resort is a place of unimaginable beauty, the perfect location to host the world’s most beautiful women. With grounds surrounding the iconic Tanah Lot rock formation, the area contains rich cultural as well as aesthetic beauty.



Tomorrow the main groups of arrivals will fly into the tropical paradise of Bali, and the official welcoming to Indonesia will take place, 'Bali Style'. The Unique Cultural Heritage of the island will be showcased, with traditional dancers, music, and celebrations as the contestants from all over the world unite for the first time here at the Nirwana Bali Resort.



After the official welcoming, the contestants will be given the chance to explore the local area with our expert local guides, who will be revealing to us all the many hidden secrets to be found at the Nirwana…
