GB Awards 2018: Miss World wins Best Interview Competition award
Interviews have become more and more relevant in beauty pageants, so it´s no surprise to see Miss World bagging the Yulia in this category, after all, they take its interviews very seriously. The Head to Head Challenge is one of the greatest pageant innovation in recent times and during the final show, questions are often relevant, demanding brains and communication skills from the candidates. The Best Interview Award goes to Miss World in 2018, congratulations!
In 2018, instead of walking in bikinis (it was left for the Top 10), the Top 20 quarter-finalists got a chance to take the mic and say whatever they wanted. Miss Universe is always moving forward in terms of what they expect from a winner, therefore, placing 2nd in this category. Taking the bronze medal is Miss Grand International, with preliminary interviews, peach speech and the final question.
Miss International, the pioneer for the contestants´ speech competition, later copied or adapted by Miss Grand International and now Miss Universe, did a good job again, finishing 4th. Miss Supranational with its final Q&A portion for the Top 5, ended on the 5th position here.
