    Pretty queen, but please Silverbird that dress is hideous, it looks like a parachute gone wrong. Why will it not be difficult for Nigeria to win the Miss World crown with this Cinderella step sisters dresses. Hmm Uncle Bruce please do something fast, we have a plethora of awesome fashion designers in Nigeria.

  25. ashley

    May 24, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    i think ms rivers wud have won. she was pretty but her answer was bad and they booed her. she said something about 52 percent of nigeria being illiterate. i guess she was nervous so she couldn’t substitute another word for illiterate. poor girl but at least she’s in the top 3. i was surprised ms enugu or bayelsa, or kogi weren’t in the top 15. even the girl that won ms amity was pretty. this was prob the worst top 15 in mbgn history but the winner was definitely the prettiest of the lot with ms rivers. but if u guys watched the show on stv on sunday u wud have seen that the prettiest girls didn’t make top 15. but it was enjoyable but i think ik (wildchild) was splendid. the girl was just forging fone me i dunno and she wasn’t connecting and she was okay facially not stunning like wildchild was saying all thru the night.

  26. pretty

    May 24, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    what an old fashion wearing wears lol.. but the queen is oky al she need is a makeover .

  27. queen

    May 24, 2010 at 8:51 pm

    yes the evening dress are very old styles ,,, the girl is fine but still she needs a make over if she is really going for the miss world that i know an watch.

  28. oge

    May 24, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    abgani am still proud of you , still looking hot and sexy.

  29. oge

    May 24, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    from the gowns the girls are wearing shows that the are not posh and knows nothing about fashion and style some need to upgrade them

  30. amaka

    May 24, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    the girl is 5fit 8inches kind of short for me for an internationl stuff like miss word, god help her when beauties from mexico , brazil , usa and many mores shows there face.

  31. beebola

    May 24, 2010 at 9:05 pm

  33. cooldude

    May 24, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    yeah she looks fine but i’m not sure about her weight for a beauty queen.
    anyway sha she win the title but i sure say everybody know say no be the finest girls for naija na them they go pageant. come see my chick…… you go wan eat am!

  34. Asa

    May 24, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    She is naturally pretty but that dress is just hideous and the color doesn’t do anything for here, the real question is can she win miss world? No,she doesn’t really stand out from the crowd, i must commend silverbird’s effort keeping a pageant like that going isn’t easy.

  35. Asa

    May 24, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    Taking into consideration that she is just 18, no more style critique, well done girl ,she is the most beautiful among the bunch

  36. Miss Lawunmi

    May 24, 2010 at 11:39 pm

    Kai! BellaNaija readers, una too much. Methinks this girl is fine o. Cos if you say she no fine then there is no hope for me. Chei! I must be Lady Chimpanzee to you then if you say this girl nor fine…


    May 25, 2010 at 12:51 am

    @oga wife, she didn’t even look excited?!?! hmmmm….makes me think.

    Fiona(nice name)is pretty but just there.
    …but seriously most of these girls don’t stand a chance when it comes to Miss World/Miss Universe etc… i.e. body type, height.

    since Agbani the winners have been getting worse. not exactly “worse” in that sense, but not as good as Agbani and such.
    after Chinenye in 2002 it seems the girls they were picking were just pretty faces but not exactly beauty queen material, like Agbani.
    Munachi was FINE!, Adaeze and the few before her (minus Munachi) and everyone after her were just pretty faces.

    i also find it a little amusing how most of the time they’re igbo. not only that but they tend to represent states outside of igbo land.

    *wish we could get a close up look at a face shot of each contestant like they did in 2007*

    but all in all, WISHING HER LUCK!!!! MAKE NAIJA PROUD! 😀

    (Bryan…so fine!) 😀

    May 25, 2010 at 2:46 am

    I really don’t think she’s that beautiful.. her face is quite pretty, but also quite unremarkable. And she seems a bit lifeless in the photos – would have liked to see more ‘personality’ and vivacity in her face. I personally don’t think she’ll do well at Miss World, but good luck to her.

  45. judy

    May 25, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    Miss Niger should have worn,she has more striking looks,although d winner is pretty am not sure she would do well at the miss world thing.

  61. Eno

    May 27, 2010 at 9:40 am

    Poor girls. As pretty as they are, they had to be given such dresses that belie description. I’m sure the most henious of them came from Occassions & Events, the stock”er” of abominable clothing. The girls probably had no choice in the matter. Ewooo!

    im really surprised at how Nigerians are so quick to condem beauty queens,it is one thing to think that your beautifull,a second thing to have the confidence to come out for a contest and then a third thing for the jurges to crown you.i am a beauty queen,i ve represented NIGERIA in the international and i know what i mean,this is not time to lay blames on bruce but a time to make contributions towards this young girl’s trip to miss world…i say congratutions fiona n i wish u success in miss World
