The Miss World Malaysia pageant for the year 2021 is all set to be held on 16th October, 2021. This edition will be the first time that the pageant will be held virtually, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Due to the increasing cases of Covid-19, the Malaysian government has been extending lockdowns and restrictive measures in almost every two weeks.

As the names of official delegates entering the pageant have started surfacing, one name that has caught a lot of attention is of Vinthiya Vasu, who is making a comeback in the pageant industry with Miss World Malaysia 2021. The diva confirmed her participation through her social media as she wrote, “Being the finalist of Miss World Malaysia is such an incredible honor and privilege. Competing with each of the representatives in Miss World Malaysia is definitely adding to the excitement and I’m incredibly blessed to be in this journey with them.”

Vinthiya is the former finalist of the recently held Miss Grand Malaysia 2021 where she finished at Top 12 and was also considered one of the strongest delegates. This physiotherapist definitely has the potential and strength to represent Malaysia at an international platform.

According to sources, 40 potential girls have been shortlisted as Miss World Malaysia 2021 finalists, but only 10 finalists will be selected to compete at the virtual Grand Finale.
