Critics and powerhouses have picked Miss Fiji Koini Vakaloloma to win the Miss World title ahead of pageant favourites Miss Phillipines, Miss Nepal and Miss Israel.

Miss World Fiji (MWF) national director Andhy Blake said words of encouragement continue to flood the Fiji camp from pageant observers and critics from powerhouses such as the Philippines, Puerto Rico and the USA.

Blake said many are comparing her to a former Miss Phillipines – Venus Raj and current Miss World,Venezuela’s Ivian Sarcos.

He said whatever the outcome, Miss Fiji has surely done the country proud having promoted our unique ‘bula spirit’ to all 117 contestants including the high profile team at Miss World.

Speaking from China, Vakaloloma said  she is very honored to be flying the Fiji flag at Miss World and recommend this unique once in a life time experience to future contenders for her title and the Miss World Fiji crown.

“The warmth and friendliness from all the girls, the support from an amazing team at Miss World, the visits to the most amazing landscapes and places in Asia, the food, cultures and historic places will be some of the treasured memories I will carry for the rest of my life.”

Miss World Beach Beauty award will be presented live on August 18th during the live final where Miss Fiji is a semi finalist in this category.
 
The Miss World Sport’s competition takes places today – Monday August 6th followed by the Miss World National Gift Auction, Private Interview and Judging before the crowing of the 63rd Miss World on August 18th.

The 62nd Miss World finals will draw to a close in less than 12 days in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China.
