How are contestants judged in the Miss World 2023 pageant?

The Miss World pageant is a prestigious international beauty competition that has been held annually since 1951. Contestants are judged on a variety of criteria, including their physical appearance, poise, personality, and talent.

To qualify for the Miss World pageant, contestants must meet certain eligibility criteria, such as being between the ages of 17 and 27, not being married or pregnant, and not having parented a child. Contestants are judged on the basis of several preliminary competitions, including a Talent round, a Beauty with a Purpose round, and a Head-to-Head challenge.

The winner of the Miss World 2023 pageant is selected by a panel of judges based on their performance in these preliminary competitions as well as their overall presentation during the final event. The judges take into account various factors such as the contestants‘ talents, fitness, poise, and personality when making their decision.

It’s important to note that the judging criteria for the Miss World 2023 pageant may vary slightly from year to year and from one competition to another. However, the overall goal of the pageant is to select a winner who embodies the ideals of beauty, grace, and humanitarianism.
