Final hurdle

ANDHY Blake says he had the privilege of watching the 10 Miss World Fiji finalists grow and transform from their first audition.

"Seven weeks of preparations, boot camps, and mentoring sessions and the results have truly been amazing." Mr Blake said.

"I wish that we could send all 10 to different international pageants, because the bar has been raised from previous years."

Mr Blake is confident the lucky finalist chosen this year would be able to win the Miss World crown.

"Our chances are pretty high, the main goal is to win the Miss World crown, and if we don't succeed in that our goal is to win the Miss Oceania title.

"The Miss Oceania title has been held by Australia for the past three years, and we want to take that title away and be known as the powerhouse of beauty for the South Pacific."

The rest of the girls will be able to hang up their ball gowns and resume with daily lives, but the winner of Miss World Fiji will be on a whole new adventure according to Mr Blake.

"After Miss World Fiji is selected, they will be getting help from my colleagues in Brazil and Australia to prepare them to embody the essence of Miss World. Eighty per cent of the total score comes from beauty with a purpose.

"We'll be working closely with the pediatric ward to do an amazing charity drive so that when we go to London it impresses the beauty with a purpose judges."
