Aishwarya Rai, Angelina Jolie, and other recent winners of this title are among the current contenders. The query nevertheless stands. Over 20 million results are found after a quick Google search for “world’s most beautiful woman.” There are many articles on the subject that all purport to know the solution and list favorites or cite poll results from various publications. We may never have a conclusive answer because so many sources seem to indicate that the title is owned by one particular woman or another.
In an effort to identify the most attractive woman in the world and make her a household name, beauty pageants have been held for decades. The first Miss Universe was crowned in 1952, but the history of pageants began in Atlantic City in 1921 with the inaugural Inter-City Beauty pageant, which was later renamed Miss America (not to be confused with Miss USA). Since then, Miss this and Miss that have been crowned at countless beauty pageants. These pageants, however, have lost their novelty and excitement over the past 30 years. Plus, it’s challenging to enter. You must be between the ages of 18 and 27 to be eligible, and there are strict age requirements for the Miss Universe Organization. You cannot currently be competing in a Miss Universe Organization pageant or have previously competed in one, whether they were national, state (such as Miss USA or state pageants), or married (or, one would assume, have children). Not to mention the entry fees charged even to apply for entry. To get into Miss Universe you have to have won the Miss USA beauty pageant (or equivalent in another country), and you are not allowed to participate in any other beauty pageants while you are entered or while “holding the crown” if you win.
With most of these beauty pageants being held only once a year it is difficult for pageant fans to maintain interest in the “off season”. Also keep in mind that the pageant shows themselves hardly change or deviate from the formula from one year to the next. The only difference is the presence of women in the competitions, questions, and hosts. Which, of course, is not a bad thing, but the repetition will be the death of beauty pageants as we currently know them.
What would be the logical progression? What could be done to modernize and change the way beauty pageants are conducted from how they are currently done? The solution is right in front of you, so why not move the pageant online and make it accessible all year long? There are a few websites claiming to be online beauty pageants, and if you dig deep enough or look in the right places, you might find hints that one or two people had this idea. One of them appears to be a diamond in the rough, while the majority of them are more like afterthoughts or even jokes.
In Search of the World’s Most Beautiful Woman®, one of the best-looking websites on the internet right now, will give the beauty pageant scene a new lease on life with a novel approach to the glamour contests. Entry to the competition is only possible online, is free of charge, and is exempt from the majority of eligibility requirements that keep many attractive women from participating. To enter, you must be older than 18 and have a decent digital photo of yourself. You can be in your 30s, married with kids, and still have a chance to compete in a top-notch beauty pageant, and that’s it. Most of the outdated “traditions” that still exist in major beauty pageants will be eliminated by this competition. As you read this, the main pageant is currently taking place online. Currently registered at In Search of the World’s Most Beautiful Woman® are more than 50 stunning Contestants from 14 different nations, and new Contestants are constantly being accepted. Everyone is welcome to take part, either by signing up to be a Contestant or by stepping up to the Judge role and selecting one of these stunning women as their favorite.
In Search of the World’s Most Beautiful Woman® hopes to take the lead among beauty pageants globally with this innovative new idea. Large cash prizes will be awarded to the winner, the finalists will receive all-expense paid trips to Las Vegas, and all Contestants will receive significant exposure to international modeling and casting agencies at the final pageant, which is scheduled to take place in 2006. There are also plans for a sizable television program, and with such innovation in a well-established field, In Search of the World’s Most Beautiful Woman® is undoubtedly a name to keep an eye on.
