The 70th edition of Miss World pageant, Miss World 2021, is set to be held on 16th December 2021 at the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico where Toni-Ann Singh of Jamaica will crown her successor at the end of the event finale. There was no pageant held in 2020 due to the rampant spread of Covid-19 across the world.

While almost all the delegates have finally arrived in the host country and have begun with the registration process for the competition, the Miss World organization has officially drawn groups for the Head to Head challenge of the 70th edition of the pageant.

The organization has recently begun with the group interviews for the challenge and the first interview that has been uploaded by the organization is of Group 10 including Ecuador, Madagascar, Chile, Northern Ireland, Luxembourg and Cameroon.

The round was hosted by Miss World 2019 Toni Ann Singh and Miss World 2015 Stephanie Del Valle. The stunning hosts introduced the challenge as they introduced the contestants, shared their presentation videos and asked questions and finally the contestants were asked questions at the end of the round.

As the divas introduced themselves and took the audience through their beautiful countries, sharing about their cultures, people and beliefs. They also shared their passions and Beauty with a Purpose projects. Towards the end of the round, the six divas were all randomly questioned by the hosts.

First up to face the question was Ecuador, who was asked, “What to you is the best way to promote female empowerment?” Amar Ibarra went on to answer, “I firmly believe that we were all born with a power, it’s going to take ourselves to go find it within us. If I have to tell a message to other women, it’s that just one spark starts the fire. Just from a little act you can do great things. We have all the different process but we are all powerful women and we just need to stay true to ourselves and believe in our capacities. If we manage to do that then we’re going to be unstoppable.”

Madagascar’s Nelie Anjaratiana was the second to answer the question, “If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?” Sharing a message to herself and the younger generation, she said, “Stay real, stay you and pave your own way. Don’t be afraid to be yourself and I hope you will find you because it’s an amazing journey and it’s the most awesome feeling ever. Celebrate yourself, proudly, loudly.”

Next up, Chile was asked, “What is one of the biggest challenges facing the world today?” Carol Drpic confidently answered, “I think one of the biggest problems is that we haven’t yet eradicated the intolerance and the infringement of human rights. But truly, I believe that if we are her together as more than one hundred women it is because we have a similar vision and a similar mission. I’m assured that we are going to have this goal of using all our resources to make a call to everyone and to future generations and that they will be able to make things better. And that we as strong and empowered women will be driving force for good.”



Anna Leitch of Northern Ireland was asked, “What has been the picture perfect moment of your life?” She shared, “I would say that happened quite recently, because I have just completed my master’s degree in Educational Leadership and I only found last week that I will be graduating in the summer time, so I have to say that was a picture perfect moment because it is something that I have always wanted. I’ve always wanted to get my masters in Educational Leadership because I feel with this platform I am able to climb the ladder and I hopefully will get to be a principal one day, which has always been a dream of mine because I feel not only am I a teacher, I’m able to inspire young minds in my classroom, I’m able to mold young people, but I feel as a principal I will be able to do so much more. I will be able to inspire young people and make positive changes.”

Next in line, Luxembourg was asked about the most important lesson for us to learn from life. Emilie Boland shared, “In Luxembourg, I’m working as a volunteer in an association, where we help the less fortunate people by giving them food for them and their families, and just by helping them I could see the sparkle in their eyes and this made me feel so good, and they also go happily home. So, I think the most important lesson in life is helping each other, even if it is our neighbor, or our brother, sister, our mothers, it’s really important to help because everyone is happy.”

Finally, last but not least, Cameroon’s Audrey Monkam was asked about the most important thing that parents should teach their children, to which she answered, “I think that children play a vital role for the future. There’s a common saying, we are the leaders of tomorrow, by the way we get to place in the future, is decided by how we were brought up. If a parent should have to bring his or her child up, then you should tell them, just be you, you are perfect, just the way you are. I do believe with their recent times, there has been an evolvement where there are norms in the society and people want to fit into it, but if you have this great background, you do not need to change for anyone, you can be who you are, wherever you are and whenever you want.”

The divas from all over the world will move forward in the 15 groups drawn by the organization, where each group will have a winner and then two by two winners will compete with one another until one ultimate winner is determined through voting on the Miss World website, who will then get an automatic spot in the top for the final night. In this challenge, each of the ladies are being given the chance to speak about their passions and Beauty with a Purpose projects.
