Miss World Swimsuit Round Will Be Removed in 2015
Miss World Organization have announced that there will be no swimsuit round in next year’s competition of the beauty pageant. They said this round is archaic and unnecessary.
According to Miss World’s Chairwoman Julia Morley, ‘I really… don’t need to see women just walking up and down in bikinis. It doesn’t do anything for the woman. And it doesn’t do anything for any of us.’
‘I don’t care if someone has a bottom two inches bigger than someone else’s. We are really not looking at her bottom. We are really listening to her speak.’
‘We don’t want to just make them feel like they are walking bodies, you know?’ she added.
Morley also revealed that she is hoping to set her competition apart from other pageants by emphasizing brains and personality over physical beauty.
