It is confirmed: once again the winner of Miss Turkey will compete in Miss World 2012. The 1st runner-up will go to Miss Universe, the 2nd runner-up to Miss Earth, and the 3rd runner-up to Miss International. One of the finalists might represent Turkey in Miss Supranational.
Twenty-four candidates have been selected for the pageant, which will happen in the end of May. In one of the strongest Turkish groups of candidates in over a decade, pageant veteran Merve Sari appears as the front-runner and number 1 favorite for the pageant.
Tugce Kursunoglu, another well-known face in the Turkish pageant business, is another strong possibility for the crown.
Two girls are acting in the most popular series on Turkish TV (also popular in the Balkans, Arabian states and Hungary): “Magnificent Century”. They are Semiha Bazek and Gozde Coskun. Pageant observer Nick C believes that fans should keep an eye on both as well, especially Gozde.
The reality show style adopted by the pageant last year did not work, so Miss Turkey will be back to its old style in 2012. The telecast final event will happen on May 31.
