Comments from Kaskus:


FPI should realize by now that their plans have failed miserably.


Where is FPI? Did they get their “silent money” from the Miss World organizer?


I watched Miss World 2013 specifically to watch the FPI cause a disturbance to the event, but where the hell did they go?

How come contestants who wore sexy clothes didn’t get censored by the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission?


I’m too lazy to watch these kind of TV shows especially when it is held in Indonesia. =(


She [Megan Young] is a mix of Filipino and Spanish heritage. =)

At a glance, she looks like Penelope Cruz but the chubbier version. Haha…

I want to take her out to dinner, do you think she’ll say yes? =)


It’s unfortunate that the contestant from our own country lost, booo…


So that’s it? What are the benefits of hosting this event for Indonesians?


I think Miss Indonesia is much cuter!


Congrats to the Philippines! Too bad Indonesia was only in the Top 10. =(


She didn’t deserve to win unless she went topless!


I think Miss Indonesia should be a native Indonesian like Javanese or Balinese but instead they often choose a Caucasian/Chinese mix representative. =(


What is the difference between Miss Universe and Miss World?

What do you think? Which Miss World contestant did you root for?
