Beauty Contests – another hat-trick in July with Miss Angel

I wrote about the flood of beauty contests in December when there were 3 beauty contests being held in a week’s time (hat-trick, if you like – Republica Miss Teen, Riddhi Siddhi Miss Teen, and Miss Teen Tamang). After that, we had College Ambassador, Miss Mangol, Miss India Worldwide Nepal, Kid Queen, Miss Lumbini, and announcements of Miss Tamang (canceled) plus combined Miss Tamang and Miss Aryan. That is not all, we have a recent announcement of yet another contest, Miss Angel 2010.

The organizers of Miss Angel believe that the event will be nearly equivalent to Miss Nepal in terms of size! (But, I don’t have any reason to believe it.) The event is going to be held on July 17. They have only a month to prepare for the event and they want it to make a grand event… It however looks better in terms of prizes – Rs. 100,000 for the winner and 50,000 and 30,000 for the first and second runner up is not a bad prize money.

A rough history of beauty contests from November to May (10 contests in 7 months and another hat-trick beauty contest announcement for July)**

  1. Mr and Miss Kathmandu – November, 2009
  2. College Ambassador – December, 2009
  3. Miss Newa – December, 2009
  4. Republica Miss Teen – December, 2009
  5. Miss Teen Tamang – December, 2009
  6. Riddhi Siddhi Miss Teen – January, 2010
  7. Miss Mangol – March, 2010
  8. Miss India Worldwide Nepal – March, 2010
  9. Kid Queen – May, 2010
  10. Miss Lumbini – May, 2010
  11. Miss Tamang – July, 2010 (announced)
  12. Miss Aryan – July, 2010 (announced)
  13. Miss Angel – July, 2010 (announced)

** – This is a rough and unofficial statistics based on our previous reporting. There might have been more contests at that time.

English Miss Teen, Nepal (update)

This is not another Miss Teen!

There are a couple of videos from one of the Miss Teen events (It is Riddhi Siddhi Miss Teen not the Republica Miss Teen) posted below. Contest, organizers, and location doesn’t really matter here. What matters is how they are organized and trained. The primary language of the event is English and the participant Teens find it really difficult.

I know, the winner of the event might need to participate in international arena. But, does that mean the primary language of the event should be made English when their first language is not English? My first language is not English and at times I find myself short of words while writing here. I have time… I can take forever to post an article and still my English sucks at times. These kids have talked in Nepal all their lives and they had to practice each lines they speak by heart – I am wondering, how can they be creative in the event?

Enough of talks. Let’s see the video and see how funny it looks when the participants introduce themselves in English.

Another Beauty Contest – Riddhi Siddhi Miss Teen

Oh no, not again! Another beauty contest!

I thought Miss Teen was already done. But, it was Republica Miss Teen and now it is Riddhi Siddhi Miss Teen. If the trend continues every teen girls in the street will have at least one Miss Teen title. Records are to be broken. There were three beauty contests in the last week of December and I am positive in seeing three contests in a single day. Are Guinness people listening?

Poor boys, I wish there were at least one Mr. Teen… sorry guys.
