Miss International 2012 must really be sad. Ikumi Yoshimatsu is the only Japanese winner of the title in the pageant’s long history and yet, she cannot crown her successor tonight. No farewell walk either.
Blame it on some contract dispute she got involved with. And the Miss International organizers do not want to have anything to do with the controversy, let alone veering away the spotlight from the finals with the appearance of Ikumi.
As a result, Miss International 2008 Alejandra Andreu will be on hand to do the ceremonial relinquishing of crown and sash to the new titleholder.
