Miss World 2017 : Info

Miss World 2017, the 67th edition of the Miss World pageant, was held at the Sanya City Arena in Sanya, China. At the conclusion of the event, Manushi Chhillar of India was crowned as Miss World 2017 by the outgoing queen and Miss World 2016, Stephanie del Valle of Puerto Rico. Andrea Meza of Mexico was the first runner-up, while Stephanie Hill of England was the second runner-up. See the full list of winners here.

Manushi became the sixth Indian girl to win the Miss World title and with her victory, India won the crown after a gap of 17 years. Last Miss World victory for India was in the year 2000 when Priyanka Chopra was crowned Miss World 2000.

Miss World pageant started an interesting new format this year, where the 118 candidates were grouped into 20 groups for Head to Head Challenge, and a winner from each group was selected to be part of the final Top 40. Another four candidates came from fast track events, while 16 candidates were jury's selection in Top 40. After the Top 40 were announced, the list was further pruned to Top 20, Top 10 and Top 5 at the finale, before announcing the runners-up and the winner.

The grand finale also had splendid singing performances by Celine Tam, a 9-year-old singer from Hong Kong, and Jeffrey Li, a 12-year old Canadian singer.
