In a break from tradition and what seems to be an alarming sign for one of the longest running pageants in the world, Miss Israel, they did not have a pageant for the first time ever. This year, it was down to a public vote over 10 days and then a live crowning ceremony shown on the Internet.
The new Miss Israel is Maayan Keren. She is 17 years old, stand 1.75m tall and will represent Israel at Miss World 2015 in Sanya, China on December 19.
The first runner-up and Miss Universe Israel is 18 year old Avigail Alfatov. She stand 1.73m tall and will represent her country at Miss Universe 2015.
I find both kind of plain. It seems like it's a case of "another one bites the dust" for Miss Israel.
