    the same thing peolple said about Miss Turkey and Look, last year for the first time they decided to switched the tiles, where is the source where say that Hazam will participate in Ordos?

    • In Miss Turkey the winner had the “Universe” sash with her.

    • No they didn’t. This is a political article.. the journalist probably doesn’t even know the difference between World or Universe. Hazam is going to Miss World.

  4. She is stunning, but she should have gone to Miss Universe. I think she could have got the first Miss Universe crown for her country, shame really.

    • Israel won Miss Universe in 1976


  6. The one going to Miss U is gorgeous. Just check her videos. She will do just fine.

  10. I am not really impressed with the winners………….

  11. The winner is gorgeous! I hope she has a personality to match — she has the potential to do some real damage at Miss World!

  12. I can’t wait for the Miss World contest to begin in Ordos, Inner Mongolia. Shani Hazan is very pretty.

  13. She is ok and reminds me a former miss Greece universe contestant

  14. well done israel!!!

  15. the blond one is not beautiful at all.

    • Actually she is- the problem is Lina bleached her hair blonde, which really does not suit her skin coloring and does nothing to show her beauty, which is a pity really

  16. OMG Shani Hazan is such a beauty, should send her to MU.

  17. israel....welcome back says:
