Megan Young wins Miss World 2013


Philippines’ bet Megan Young becomes the “most beautiful woman in the world” as she wins the Miss World 2013 title during the pageant’s coronation night on September 28 (Saturday) in Bogor, Indonesia.
This year’s highly controversial pageant just made history after it installed the first-ever Filipina to win the coveted crown—bringing virtual chills and cheers online and in large part the whole of the Philippine archipelago whom she perfectly represented in the oldest surviving beauty pageant in the world.
The 23-year-old Filipino-American actress-TV host stunned the world as she presented the aura of a Miss World-in-the-making all throughout the pageant held in various parts of Indonesia.
Fearless forecast becomes reality
But even early in the game, Megan has been widely predicted as the next Miss World as she never run out of impressing the judges in the competition.
The Miss World organizers have shown early signs of picking the first Filipina titlist as they placed Megan in three of the five challenge events (formerly called fast track): first in the Top Model category, fourth in the Multimedia category, and fifth among the 11 finalists in the Beach Fashion Final.
While they no longer give the challenge events winners a sure spot in the final round, the winners have been awarded bonus points to their preliminary scores.
‘Curse broken’
The beauty queen hopeful goes down in history as the first-ever Filipina to win Miss World—breaking a popular urban legend that no Filipina will ever win the title.
The said legend can be traced back in 1977 when Peachy Veneracion made the curse after she was forced to withdraw from the pageant at the time.
Since then, despite the Philippines successful finish in Miss Universe and other international beauty tilts, the Miss World crown has been elusive until 36 years later.
In 2011, the Philippines almost won the title when Gwendoline Ruais placed second to Ivian Sarcos of Venezuela. Last year’s bet, Queneerich Rehman made it to the Top 15.
