We have rounded up a list of 5 countries which have borne the most titleholders since 1951. These nations are celebrated for their beautiful women, and more:
India has won the Miss World championship six times, more than any other country. The first woman from India to win the crown in 1966 was Reita Faria Powell. She also became the first Asian woman to hold the title. The values of Indian households are manifested in their women. There’s splendid cultural diversity throughout the country.
Like India, Venezuela has also won the Miss World competition six times. Carmen Zubillaga was the first Venezuelan and Latin American to win the Miss World title. Pilín León went on to become a writer after winning the Miss World title in 1981. In a nation that has produced multiple Miss Universe and Miss World winners, beauty is an integral part of culture.
3. United Kingdom
The United Kingdom has won the competition five times. On November 17, 1983, Sarah-Jane Hutt from the UK won Miss World. Afterwards, this star traveled across the globe as an ambassador for the pageant and also working with the Beauty with a Purpose charitable interests. A charitable personality is inextricably intertwined with Miss World pageants.
4. South Africa
South Africa has won the Miss World championship three times. Three Miss South Africas, namely, Rolene Strauss, Anneline Kriel and Penelope Coelen, have won the Miss World titles in 2014, 1974 and 1958 respectively. Breaking a 40-year drought, Strauss took the world by storm and reminded everyone that South African women are a force to be reckoned with.
5. United States
Like South Africa, the United States has also won the Miss World pageant three times. The country won it in 1973, 1990, and 2010. It is interesting to note that the United States has continuously sent a representative to Miss World since its inception in 1951. The winners were “well-rounded and self confident young women with a big heart and soul”.
Since Miss World began, 36 countries have won the title, some more than once. The above mentioned countries have taken home the most crowns.
