Amazing winner! The Philippines must be going crazy. They have waited 63 years for their first Miss World title. Happy for France and Ghana. Great top 3. Sad for Brazil. She deserved to be in the top 3. Can't wait to follow Megan's journey!!!


  1. Great top 3, but don't understand how Cameroon who was Top 12 in talent and Top 10 in Top model missed the cut, when contestants like Aruba, Curacao ad Belgium made it.Bizarre

  2. Yes its been a long wait with a winner like Megan Lynne Young!!!
