World pageant for Fiji

MISS World Fiji pageant organisers are partnering with a renowned company that has worked on one of Australia's biggest live music events and with one of the world's biggest pop stars to make the local show a truly international spectacle.

The show's national director Andhy Blake has revealed an extravagant plan to lure the Miss World finals show to the country.

"This year, Miss World Fiji is working with international company Trutone Entertainment out of Sydney which has worked on big events such as Sydney's Big Day Out and more recently the Beyonce concert," said Mr Blake.

Trutone Entertainment has hooked up with local mobile media giant F1 Mobile and Miss World Fiji to turn the local pageant into a mega show.

"Our plan is to produce an event that is of an international standard in the hope that we will attract the international Miss World Finals to be staged in Fiji."

Preparations were already in progress at The Pearl South Pacific Resort in Pacific Harbour to create a world-class setting for the annual Miss World Fiji contest.

Mr Blake said the fete, scheduled for July 26, would highlight that Fiji was more than ready to host the international show.

Miss World, the largest beauty contest in the world, is watched by more than one billion viewers on television and has forged the successful careers of former winners like Bollywood stars Aishwarya Rai- Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra and Hollywood actress Halle Berry.

The contest created history on social media site Facebook by recording more than one million likes on its page.
