The 2013 Miss World title has been claimed by Megan Young representing the Philippines. US born Ms Young beat off competition from 126 contestants at the glitzy competition which took place on the Indonesian island of Bali.
At the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Centre, Ms Young recieved the Miss World Crown from Wenxia Yu, marking a new era of Miss World! With a huge array of music dancing, bright lights and of course 127 amazing contestants, Miss World 2013 came to a dramatic conclusion as the cast was cut to 20, then 10, before a final 6 were left on stage to answer the judges questions.
Philippines, Brazil, Spain, Ghana, and France were the judges selection from the Top 10, before they were joined by the wildcard People’s Choice Gibraltar, who received the most votes on the Miss World 2013 App.
They were given the chance to tell the judges why they should be Miss World 2013, before we were treated to a musical trio of Miss World 2012 Wenxia Yu, Indonesia’s Vania Larissa and Australia’s Erin Holland who complimented each other perfectly in an operatic collaboration..
Then the final three were announced, with Megan Young winning the crown, France’s Marine Lorphelin as the First Runner up, Ghana’s Naa Okailey Shooter second runner up.
The confetti exploded onto the stage as all contestants linked arms and ended with a beautiful rendition of the Miss World song ‘Light the Flame’.
The event, which was originally planned to be held in Jakarta, was broadcast in 180 countries.
