Firstly, Miss Philippines Marian Angelu Alcantara was given the continental title of Miss Tourism World Asia and was awarded Best in Tourism Video.
And then (surprise!), she did not make Top 15.
What did just happen at Miss Tourism 2017/2018 World Finals?
Here is the Top 15:
Novosibirsk – Miss Bikini World
Then they call the Top 5:
Final Q&A soon followed where the five ladies mentioned above actually went through the process.
And then it was announced that there was a mistake in the calling out of the names of the Top 5.
Top 15 called onstage once more.
And then a New Top 5 (with Panama and Great Britain out, Malaysia and Serbia in)
And from there, only 18 candidates returned onstage before the announcement of winners.
Miss Tourism World 2017 / 2018
1st runner up Peru
2nd runner up Serbia
3rd runner up Malaysia
4th runner up Mongolia
This is not looking good for the organizers. Tsk tsk tsk.
And they blame the computer system for the error.
