As the 63rd Miss World pageant officially began in Indonesia, some behind-the-scene moments of the Miss World 2013 contestants are highly sought-after.
Continuing with the Miss World 2013 pageant’s schedules, the contestants were filmed, as Miss World Philippines 2011, Gwendoline Ruais, and Miss Scotland 2011, Jennifer Reoch, took to microphones to capture behind-the-scene moments of the contestants.
All the contestants arrived in Indonesia by the end of 3 September. Upon arriving in Bali, the host island for the pageant’s first week of events, they were greeted with frangipani flowers against the picturesque backdrop of a seaside resort.
Presenters Ruais and Reoch tried to know all about the contestants by speaking with them. A video shows the entire behind-the-scene coverage of what goes behind in the making of Miss World:
One of the highlights of the Miss World contestants' official reception on Tuesday night was a concert by singer turned beauty queen, Miss Indonesia 2013, Vania Larissa.
A total of 131 contestants, each representing a country, have arrived in Bali to take part in the month-long Miss World 2013 competition. This is a record number of contestants against 116 contestants who took part in last year’s competition.
The grand finale of the pageant, to be held on 28 September in Jakarta, will choose a winner, who will be crowned Miss World 2013 by China’s Wenxia Yu, Miss World 2012.
