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 11 including Puerto Rico, Slovenia, Philippines, Macau China, France and Gibraltar.


Miss World 2021 Head to Head Challenge Interview – Group 11


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 for the final question was Puerto Rico. She was asked, “If you could break one rule, what would that be?” Aryam Diaz beautifully answered, “I would just decide to break the rules that limit us. For example, years ago, women weren’t able to vote so until one woman decide to break that rule, she changed that I can’t to I can, and now we are all available to vote and we have so many cants in our life that we have to change sometime so we can do our things for example, black people didn’t have the rights until Martin Luther King decided to say, yes we can, lets unite us people, us race and let us make those rules change because we deserve better. So the rules that limit us can be broken for a better future, no matter what is your gender, religion, what is your purpose in life, believing in ou and sometimes breaking the rules is the right choice.”

Secondly, Maja Colic of Slovenia was asked, “What does it to be a modern woman?” She answered, “I would say that to be a modern woman it takes courage because we live in a modern world, but are people’s minds really following this development of life?  I’m lucky that I live in a country where I do have opportunity to educate myself, to be at the equal position as for example the opposite gender but unfortunately there are parts of the world where women do not have same opportunities and one thing that is worth to mention is that women are actually source of life, our body is a place where a new life is born, and a new life I future so women are future.”

Next up Tracy Perez of Philippines was asked, “If you woke up tomorrow and gained any ability, what would it be and why?” Tracy confidently responded, “I will go a little bit extreme with this one, by tomorrow I would love to learn, understand and be able to speak not just one more language but all the languages all over the world. Being here in Miss World, I realized that while it is the language of love and kindness, that is universal to all of us, it would be a bit more amazing if we could really talk freely and really understand each other and not hold back because of cultural differences and language barriers. I think that it also goes for the rest of the world, if every one of us really understood each other, if every one of us was able to really communicate with each other, then we would definitely live in a world where no one is left behind, everyone could speak up, everyone is heard, especially the underrepresented, the underprivileged, and again we will all live in a world where negativity is nowhere to be found.”

Macau China was up next as she was asked about what she values the most in life. Jiani Yuan opened up as she shared, “My family means the world to me. Despite the poor family conditions I was in when young, I am grateful for the tremendous love and support I have received from my own family who have sacrificed to provide me with all that I needed. I have always been blessed and protected by my loved ones who mean everything to me. I hope to provide the best for my family and repay them for all that they have down for me.”



Next in line, France was asked, “What is one of the biggest challenges young girls face today?” April Benayoun answered, “It depends of course of your country and culture but I would say that one of the biggest challenge for young girls today is to teach how to be financially independent, because we know by earning, you can create your own life, you can create your dreams and to be honest if I have girls that will be one ofnthe first things I would like to teach to them. That is why education is so important and I think that by being financially independent you can create your dreams.”

Lastly, concluding the round, Gibraltar’s Janice Sampere was asked how she would define success, to which she replied, “Success for me is waking up every morning excited and falling asleep fulfilled because life is so precious and just to get up in the morning healthy and excited is truly grateful.”

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.
