Miss World 2017: Visual Explanation of New Format

Miss World 2017 Top 40 will consist of:

* 20 head to head challenge winners
* 5 fast track winners (Sports, Top Model, Multimedia, Talent, Beauty With A Purpose)
* 15 judges picks

What will happen after that...

Find out soon at www.missworld.com

Overall, I do think that this could bring some excitement to the buildup of the event and also highlight some countries who really get a chance to shine. My major concern is the execution of this plan. It's imperative that the head to head challenges are done really well. The voting concerns me. For example, I live in China and everything is blocked there. Also, I do worry about how this will affect the telecast. They have made some positive changes and I hope they don't go back to square 1. I really hope they keep last year's introductions and when the girl's introduction segment appears, the words 'Top 40 Finalist' or 'Head to Head Challenge Winner' could appear. Then they can only do a quick recap after the introductions. It will be way too tedious to announce 40 finalists. I think 40 is a bit too much anyway. But I'm going to keep an open mind with this one!

Miss World Tour to South Africa Ends on High Note

* 750 000 Meals Packed 

* Julia Morley pledges bus service for kids of Mvezo 




Miss World's Beauty With A Purpose tour to South Africa has ended on a high note when Chief Mandla Mandela announced that 750,000 meals were packed during the Rise Against Hunger food packing events in Johannesburg and the Eastern Cape. 


Miss World, Stephanie del Valle, and Mr World, Rohit Kandelwal, were joined on this trip by the 2016 continental queens of Africa, the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe and Oceania as well as Asia's continental queen of 2015. The group accompanied Miss World CEO, Julia Morley, and Events Director, Steve Douglas, on this trip. 



Their final stop of the tour was Mvezo, where Nelson Mandela was born, and the team of beauties were treated to a tour of the village by Chief Mandela as well as a special lunch at the Mandela residence. They also visited Mvezo School and when Julia Morley heard the many students miss out on school as they have to walk great distances to get there, she immediately pledged to get a bus service up and running for the school to the delight of the villagers.
