For a year, this representative from the People’s Republic of China will travel around the world and carry out various social missions under a program named Beauty With A Purpose.

The last task of this 177 centimeter beauty queen will be carried out at Miss World 2013 in Indonesia. The confirmation on the upcoming Miss World venue was symbolic during the final night of Miss World 2012. On that night, Nana Putra, the Managing Director of MNC Group, received the flag of Miss World.

According to the plan, Miss World 2013 will be held in September by taking a quarantine location in Bali. Meanwhile, Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, is selected as the site to host the final night of Miss World 2013.

“Jakarta will host the final night of Miss World 2013. But we are not sure yet of the exact location,” said Kanti Mirdiati to Okezone in Blacksteer Lounge, Shopping Arcades Belleza, Permata Hijau, Jakarta.

Miss Indonesia Project Director & RCTI Managing Director also explained why Jakarta was selected for the final night of Miss World 2013.

“This is part of our efforts to introduce Jakarta and Indonesia to the world. Most people from overseas have heard of Bali, but they do not know that Bali is in Indonesia. They think Bali is a country,” commented this friendly lady.

Comments from Kaskus:


Will the bikini event be banned?


Caution! Bikini wear is prohibited in Jakarta, need to ask permission from the FPI [Islamic Defenders Front] and MUI [Indonesian Ulama Council] first.


Do not forget to prepare your “bribes” in advance…


Not bad, boss. We should introduce Indonesia more to the foreign community, to make it more known.


Wow… get ready for another controversy.


Obviously the FPI will issue a statement soon.

Doesn’t affect me much since I hardly watch this competition. BTW, is this just a plan? It might still be cancelled.


Wow… superb. There will be many hot beauties coming to Indonesia. Hehe.


Soon there will be the frog gang a.k.a FPI [Islamic Defenders Front] to organize various protests…


Wow, come on, let’s introduce Indonesia through Miss World. Hopefully everything will go safely and smoothly. When else can we see Miss World in Indonesia?


Just get ready for the FPI, boss. They will raid the place during the bikini-competition segment.


I feel bad for the contestants, some people might attempt to scare them away.


This is a contest to choose the best whore in the world… Come on, let’s choose who is the most expensive.


Bali should just hold the final night as well, instead of costly Jakarta. It might even get cancelled again similar to Lady Gaga’s concert.

What do you think of Indonesia as the host of Miss World 2013? Do you think Jakarta or Bali is ready for such a world-scale event?
