Manushi Chhilar from India has emerged the most beautiful in the Miss World 2017 contest, on Saturday, November 18.
The Miss World 2017 was the 67th edition of the beauty pageant held on November 18, 2017, at the Sanya City Arena in Sanya, China with 118 contestants from all over the world, including Nigeria, competing for the crown.
The 21-year-old from Haryana had made it to the top five at the Miss World 2017 pageant but was clearly shocked as she heard her name called out as the winner. Emotions flared as she received the much-coveted crown from Miss World 2016, Puerto Rico’s Stephanie Del Valle.
According to report, this is the sixth time that India has won the Miss World, after 17 years, tying it for the most title wins with Venezuela.
Emphasis was laid on what placed Miss Chhilar on the top five spot closer to the crown – with England, France, Kenya and Mexico. All indications points to the answer she gave to the question:
“Which profession deserves the highest salary and why?”
“I think a mother is of the highest respect. I don’t think its just about cash but love and respect she gives to someone. She is the biggest inspiration in my life. Mother should get highest respect.”
Manushi is born to doctor parents, studied at St. Thomas School in New Delhi and Bhagat Phool Singh Government Medical College for Women in Sonepat.
Meanwhile, Miss Ugochi Ihezue takes the position of the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, MBGN 2017.
She represented Nigeria at the global contest and made the country proud, as she won the Top Model Competition and became the second quarter-finalist of the competition.
The Miss World Organization owns and manages the annual Miss World Finals, a competition that has grown into one of the world’s biggest. Since its launch in 1951, the organisation has raised more than £250 million for children’s charities that help disabled and underprivileged children.
Miss World is franchised in more than 100 countries. It is a privately held firm, and thus figures for its earnings, expenses and charitable contributions are not publicly available.
