    Our dear Unoaku has not reached Sanya, I wish they have some sort of report card to know the position those who don’t reach top 20 took. Because I’m sure we’ll carry last in both miss world and miss universe this year.

    @Sylvia plz swallow you bile. Why not go en represent us. BTW BellaNaija where is our own Naija babe.

      Why is it that you people don’t like to hear the truth? The miss world pageant started since two weeks ago, as at two days ago, Unoaku posted a photo on Instagram from Nigeria, meaning she hasn’t left, meanwhile the competition has already started and the girls have already been scored for some challenges, meaning Unoaku has scored zero in those challenges. Our miss universe rep nko? Her mates too have started traveling, she’s still in Nigeria. Unfortunately for her miss universe is now being run by WME/IMG modeling agency, so she doesn’t stand a chance with her chubby face. With all those Venezuelans, Brazillians and co. that have had tons of surgeries, go and steal the crowns and put on their heads now.

      Please tell them o. our people never take things seriously till the last minute. Iblame the organizations handling the franchise here in Nigeria. If it is to claim or make common sense we will see them. In this matter that holds national interest common sense dey lack for the matter. She shouldn’t even bother to go. No class or poise emernating from here. Our people haven’t heard of grooming poise and etiquette class.

    And why is Miss Namibia a white girl? Are they still under colonial rule? South Africa the country I will understand the White dominance and hold in the neck, but Namibia the country? Does it mean they don’t have enough pretty black girls to represent the Namibia? Please Namibia don’t make that mistake again. Let true Africans represent Africa especially in a free African country like Namibia.

    Besides, where is our darling Ms. Nigeria, Bella?

      Is she not Namibian?? Did she did not win fair and square? Is this the first time you’re learning that whites are African too?

    • abi

      November 30, 2015 at 11:53 pm

      Whites can be African? Mmmh..can whites be Chinese, Indian or South American? I don’t think so. Whites in African are sub generational immigrants but never ever ever ever African. It’s like saying Bruce Jenner is a woman like my mum is a woman.

      Seriously? I think we rily sounding petty wit dis argument of who is more black or white to represent sure there will b a 3rd world war if any white American critizes a black rep for the pageant jus becus shez black.letz rise above dis interesting how we always play victim wen we are the once dat always start the war.

    • Namibian chicks do it better

      November 30, 2015 at 10:23 pm

      She is mixed race like Miss Botswana. A lot of us in Namibia are of mixed white and black Nama (an indegineous black tribe) heritage. And whatever shade we come in we are proudly Namibian.

    Let me just assume Ms Namibia lost her luggage and had to sew an outfit from clothes she picked up at the hotel gift shop. Or did she really go all the way to China to shame every corner of her country. Okay.

    Miss Seychelles’costume looks like something i can sew in my room under an hour…N O T I M P R E S S E D.
    Miss Tanzania’s reminds me of Timon in lion king.
    Miss Uganda stole my bra ke!
    It seems like these Central and South American babes did not go there to play. The Africans had better STEP-UP their game.

    i think miss world is a low budget competition and cant be compared to miss universe which i think is more grand. all the costumes look somehow. still wonder why the winner of mbgn cant represent nigeria in the more globally acclaimed competition and not this one.

    • Sylvia

      November 30, 2015 at 4:28 pm

      Oh shut up, it’s not Miss world’s fault that bellanaija chose to post only pictures of the cheap looking traditional costumes, most of which were worn by African contestants. Go to the miss world website yourself and see that misses Venezuela, Turkey, Colombia, Lebanon look like QUEENS in their traditional costumes, Miss Brazil looks like a carnival queen. A lot of the other contestants look absolutely breathtaking. Miss Universe on the other hand is a HUGE joke! They shouldn’t call theirs traditional costume, but just costume, Miss Thailand is going as a ‘Truck’, last two years Miss USA went as ‘transformer’, what is traditional about those? Miss World is MILES ahead miss universe in so many ways, they subject their contestants to lots of tests such as talent, sports, top model etc prior to the finals night, that is why they produce the best winners, look at Aishwarya Rai, Priyanka Chopra, Lisa Hanna(Jamaica’s minister of tourism) and so many others. Miss universe on the other hand only judge their contestants based on swimsuit, evening gown, and some silly final question(so many miss universe winners have messed up in this, yet they still won), please remind me of any past miss universe winner that is doing well? Should we talk about how miss universe winners spend the year of their reign doing photoshoots, meanwhile miss world winners spend the year of their reign doing charity work round the world. Never compare these two pageants, never!

      We should meet. I have finally seen someone as passionate about Miss World as I am. And you are absolutely correct, Miss World is superior.
      I’ve been stalking Unoaku’s IG page because I really believed she had a shot but alas! It seems she’s writing her finals.
      Silver bird please improve on the MBGN’s introduction video. Year in, year out, it’s draw, no life just the beauty Queen sitting in a chair while telling us about her country, checkout other countries,they show us the country while the queen does a voice over.

      Beauty pageants in general are not as glamorous which in my opinion is a good thing. They need to be phased out or banned. A complete objectification of women. How can we in 2015 judge women by their looks as though looks are an achievement. A brief look back at the history of these competition will show their true motivations. They are detrimental to our struggle for equality. There’s no art form or vicarious display of talent like say modelling. Just a bunch of girls who are obsessed with their looks and a very disturbing need to be validated and declared the prettiest and nothing else.

      How is miss universe more globally acclaimed than miss world? Do you know the meaning of those words at all? Miss Universe keeps struggling to get up to 90 contestants each year, meanwhile, miss world gets over 100 contestants on a steady, so which one is more globally acclaimed? You’re calling Miss world low budget and Miss universe grand, meanwhile miss world books five star hotels for their contestants and allows them mingle with the natives of the host country as is happening now in China, plus uses the grandest stage for their final night, how can you compare that to miss universe’s chocked up stage? Miss Universe is not even going to last much longer because it is oudated. In this day and age of feminism, they are still parading women on stage in bikinis as if it is the 70s when men would choose from among them their mistresses. Are you Queen Celestine or one of the other ITK MBGN first runner ups? Because that will explain your pointless comparison. In my opinion though, MBGN should stop the titles for the runner ups. There should be one MBGN like in the days of Agbani Darego, who should represent us at both Miss World and Miss Universe, except if the pageants are clashing like this year, then the runner up should go to miss universe, but they should not give her any ‘title’, because it takes away from the real winner.

    Silverbird is no longer taking the Miss World Competition seriously. The. MBGN winner is still writing her final exams; why is someone else not representing us? Must we wait for her? Here’s hoping by the time she arrives, a daaman miracle happens!
