The first person to win the Miss World Competition was Kerstin Hakanson of Sweden.
Miss World Competition faced backlashes during its initial years because it was considered to be immodest during those days- especially for women wearing Bikini. But the scenario changed from the year 1959 when BBC started airing the show, which lead to the popularity of the event. . Since the death of Morley in 2000, the event has been co-hosted by his widow, Julia. Gurung purchased the company in November of last year. As per the rules of the competition, participants must be unmarried, childless, aged between 17 and 27, and residents of the country in which they are competing.
The United Arab Emirates hasn’t entered a delegate in the Miss World competition yet, but they have been part of the Miss World competition before. In 2021, they made history as the first Mrs UAE beauty queen to make it to the top of the leaderboard when Debanjali Kamstra came in third place. The Miss World competition was first held in 1984 and it’s been held all over the world since then, from India, Russia, South Africa, and South Korea.
