Last May, media in Kazakhstan, including the portal Zakon.kz, reported that Miss Kazakhstan 2011 Aynur Tolueova would represent the country in Miss Universe 2012, while her 1st runner-up Evgeniya Klishina would compete in Miss World in Ordos, China.
Recently, the same portal made a report about Tolueova’s preparation for the upcoming Miss Universe pageant to be held in Las Vegas in December.
However, according to the official rules, she would be ineligible to compete in both the Miss Universe 2012 and 2013 pageants.
Tolueova was crowned Miss Kazakhstan 2011 at 16 years old. Reports on her victory state that she was an 11th grade student, born on February 4, 1995. In order to compete in Miss Universe you have to be at least 18 years old by February 1st. Tolueova is 17.
Even if she applied to Miss Universe 2013, when she is 18, she would be reaching the age on Feb. 4th, a mere three days after the cut-off. But the American organization is very strict about their rules and she would also be ineligible to compete next year.
The Miss Kazahstan 2012 beauty competition is scheduled for December, so they would have to appoint a representative who meets the requirements to travel to Las Vegas.
Evgeniya Klishina competed successfully in the Miss World competition in Ordos last august, placing among the top 30 quarter-finalists.
