  1. like to know how come miss India get a longer to speak and miss Trinidad get lest then miss India to speak i think they cheat miss Trinidad…. miss Trinidad and miss India answer was the best … i still don’t understand how Miss Russia, won her answer was so poor ? I’ve lost all faith in Miss world. the the whole world know they cheat miss Trinidad ..and they are watching…. it was on radio this morning what they did to Miss Trinidad .
    issues with the bias unmannerly male host who clearly was supporting miss south Africa. this man had no manners whatsoever.. he just pulled away the mic from Trinidad mid sentence….. it was shocking not to mention rude!!
    they should do a RECOUNT… they will never do a recount Because if they do one and they found out there was a mistake they will feel ashamed and ever one will be laughing at Miss world
