All About Ksenia Sukhinova: Miss World 2008 Winner

(This entry was originally published in this blog December 2008 and it is based on the information of that time.)

Miss Russia Ksenia Sukhinova 2008 has won the title of Miss World 2008 as the Russian beauty queen impressed the judges with her stunning look and talent. When the name of the Miss World 2008 winner was announced by the hosts, Ksenia Sukhinova became overly excited and delighted. In the presence of a number of globally recognized celebrities including actors, actresses and stars of other professions, the grand final turned into a big gather of world stars. The three-hour long grand final was telecast live in more than 180 countries across the world through more than 350 television broadcasters. The glittering ceremony was watched by about 2 billion audience.

Miss World is one of the most popular beauty contests in the world and has huge attraction to the people as well as to the young aspiring models who want to show their beauty, skill and talent to the world. Miss World 2008 was the 58th Miss World Final since the inception of the beauty pageant by Eric Morley in 1951. This year the final of the beauty pageant took place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. Though initially the Miss World 2008 was supposed to take place at Kiev, Ukraine, the beauty contest was later shifted to Johannesburg, South Africa due to political tension between Georgia and Russia.

The grand final was started with the beauty queens coming on the stage wearing evening gown. Then two hosts Taiwanese television presenter, actress, Angela Chao, and South African actor, TV presenter, Tumisho Masha, welcomed everybody in the final. Popular British band group Mcfly and English singer Alesha Dixon performed in the grand ceremony and entertained the present as well as the television audiences. Then the hosts started to announce the names of the winners of 5 Fast Track events in which the winners of four events: Miss World Beach Beauty, Miss World Top Model, Miss World Sports and Miss World Talent- were earlier announced. Only the winner of Miss World Beauty With a Purpose event was not unveiled earlier. This coveted award, which is awarded for charity and philanthropic activities in the society, went to Miss Trinidad & Tobago 2008 Gabrielle Walcott, defeating Miss Hungary 2008 Szilvia Freire, Miss Kenya 2008 Ruth Kinuthia and Miss Mexico 2008 Anagabriela Espinoza. The winners of the 5 Fast Track events were automatically qualified for the semi final. Following the announcement of 5 Fast Track Event winners, 10 other semi finalists were announced. Here, I am giving the full list of top 15 semi finalists:
