The organisation has also brought down the height criteria to 5.5” and above. Since, the Miss World Organisation itself states that they don’t really take the height into consideration while selecting the winner, it was only wise to bring down the age criteria down. This will again increase the probability to find a suitable contender to represent at the Miss World pageant.
