The Miss Universe 2018 representative of Nepal, Manita Devkota is not receiving the same level of love from her fellow countrymen. She hasn’t been able to create the impression that she is a worthy contestants. She is trying to impress us by sharing some bikini photo of herself. But, that is not what people want. They want some witty and impressive comments from her.
Does this post impress you?
And this is the latest in her instagram:
Although everybody expected Shrinkhala Khatiwada to win the crown, many were disappointed because she wasn’t selected in the Top 5. But, what she did was already a national record and it was also only one in the whole competition – two major titles to one contestant.
Winner is Miss Mexico:
It was on April 11, 2018, Miss Nepal 2018 Shrinkhala Khatiwada was crowned the new Miss Nepal. Right after that, she started preparing for the Miss World competition. She did an awesome work to a Chepang community in her home district.
Right before Miss Nepal finale – Shrinkhala wrote – “Miss Nepal was not a coincidence for me. I have dreamed and visualized of myself being here for years now. I never told anyone because I was scared that people might not think I was worthy enough.”
And she won the title!
A video report on her journey :

Miss Nepal 2018, Shrinkhala Khatiwada has made a new record in the Miss World beauty contest. Although the Beauty with a Purpose title was not to first for Nepal, Multimedia award was the first title to Nepal. Winning two titles in Miss World on the same day was another first in the Miss World contest. She will bring home more titles for sure:

How can Shrinkhala go to semi finals of Miss World 2018? Here is the answer:
There are six contests. Only one of them has already completed – top model competition. In that contest, Shrinkhala was one of the Top 32. Remaining 5 contests are:
- Head to Head Challenge
- Multimedia Award
- Beauty with a purpose
The three possible competitions she might win are Head to Head challenge, Multimedia award and Beauty with Purpose.
15 contestants will be selected by these competitions. There is a high chance that she gets more than one titles. If she wins more than one, she will be considered to be possible winner.
Shrinkhala has also given the details in her Instagram posts:
A lot of Nepali were shocked when Miss Nepal Shrinkhala faced a problem with her gown during the ramp walk of Top Model Competition of Miss World 2018. My video report:
To the issue, Shrinkhala had clarified it bye sharing the following statement:
Nepali people are good at online voting and supporting their representative in the international arena. Now, Miss Nepal Shrinkhala Khatiwada has got a huge support from the Nepali people all around the world.
If you are not sure how to vote Shrinkhala in Miss World, here is the video where she herself gives the details:
In the Top Model competition of Miss World, Miss Nepal Shrinkhala Khatiwada was one of the top 32. But, she couldn’t win the title. Although Shrinkhala couldn’t win any title, that is ok because, she wasn’t aiming to win the title in the first place. The category is not an strong category for an intelligent nerd. Being in top 32 in a purely modelling category is a huge boost in her capability out of her nerdy-realm.
The winners of Beauty of World Miss World 2018 Top Model Fast Track were:
Winner – Miss France
Runner up -China PR
2nd Runner up – Senegal
4th – Korea
5th – South Africa
Top 32 out of 118 contestants
Now, it is turn of the head of the state to act like a king.
It is a huge sum of money for 8 cars for the president.
– President is a ceremonial post – she doesn’t have to do any work.
– She is paid for the post that doesn’t do any work – and causes jam in the road when she travels.
– She had demanded the cars in 2017. At that time Nepali Congress was in the government. But, it was delayed because of protest. The prime minister, Sher Bahadur Deuba, denied such demand at that time.
– Now, the president’s party, CPN is in power.
– To soften the protest, the purchase is done through Nepal Army.
Strange – isn’t it?

This is crazy – unheard of – record breaking video of a Nepali beauty queen that got 700,000 views in a day. Miss Nepal Shrinkhala Khatiwada released the introduction video in her own channel and it got 100s of thousands of views instantly. Watch the following video and you will say, “Yes, it deserves the attention.”:
Shrinkhala wrote a long post on how she prepared for the video, how she wrote the script and how the team worked on it to make it that good. The status is a clear indication that she also deserves the Miss World title this year. I believe, no other contestants have prepared themselves this much for the title.

Namaste everyone! I don't know where do I begin. I am out of words to express my gratitude towards the support and love that you have been showering us with! We released the introduction video last night and in less than 24 hrs, we've managed to get 6, 60,000 views! This is going to be a long caption, please bear with me ❤️ Ever since I was crowned as a Miss Nepal, I knew that I was going to Miss World carrying the entire country on my shoulders. The introduction video might not seem like a big deal but, for me it was a huge platform to represent Nepal to the world. Nepal is extremely diverse, and to show it in a short video whilst introducing my personal self was a big challenge. I wanted someone fresh and talented to do this project. Upon a lot of research, I decided that @abinbho was the best person who could do it. He seemed passionate, hard working and I felt like his work needed much more exposure. Luckily , he agreed as well! We must have had at least 10 meetings before we finalized on the entire concept. I would constantly write the script and scrap it off because it never seemed to capture the essence of my place and I. We finally had a concept and a rough script ready. We shot for more 10 days in total. Struggled a lot to find sponsors, to manage time, to manage all the necessary resources within hours notice. It's not easy when you have a nature of micro managing everything, but somehow, with a lot of support, we pulled it off! We had done the dubbing prior to the shoot. In between, we also had the music ready. I remember when Abin called at midnight to play the first draft of the music by incredibly talented @kobidbazra. We were hooked! Then was the most challenging part to piece it all together. We started out with a mindset of producing 2:30 long video but it couldn't execute the concept that we had. We had a draft ready but something felt missing every time. I got lucky to meet @sisanbaniya on our trip to Thailand. On one of the nights, I shared with him the idea and the script that I had planned, I remember he high fived me at least 10 times and promised to help us in any way possible. Which he whole heartedly did.. Cont'd..
The remaining part (lost in the sea of comments in the embeded post above):
The essence that felt missing, he filled it with his script and pieced it perfectly together. Most of the best parts of the script are mostly his ideas. We tweeked the music here and there and dubbed it again at the day after Laxmi Puja.
Abin has done an incredible job. He often used to tell me that he wanted to make this the best project of his life so far and I am so proud that it has actually turned out to be that way. Every single shot has a story and at least 15 backups behind it. We’ve really worked hard.
Most of the mesmerizing shots of Nepal are by @manish.maharjan444. He is another person who never fails to amaze me. Thank you so much for being a part of this incredible journey. He has a big role to play for both introduction video and bwap documentary.
There are a lot of people that I am due to thank @ASTIKSHERCHAN
kanchan di and kabita for making sure I looked good at freezing temperatures. @prashanna_07, ananta, rojan, sishir dai , nisha , Mohit, @ktmcty @anta @TRISHOOLSPORTS, JGI group, Nepal Tourism Board, The Hidden Treasure
Talking about the history – the closest Nepal has ever reached to the Miss World crown was in 2013. Miss Nepal Ishani Shrestha was one of the Top 10 that year. She had also won the Beauty with the Purpose title.
Shrinkhala is a well rounded personality – she has the charisma to outshine Ishani. Will, Shrinkhala Khatiwada create history for Nepal this year?
I believe she will !!
