Miss World Final on E!

Media Release: 7 DECEMBER 2005

Miss World Final on E!

The Final of the Miss World 2005 pageant will premiere on the E! Entertainment Network (SKY Digital Channel 7), 7.30pm on Friday, December 16.

The two-hour show from the Sheraton Sanya Resort on the shores of the South China Sea is set to be the most lavish spectacular in the festival’s 55-year history.

Over 100 contestants have entered the event but only 15 women will make the final after global zone voting and three special “fast track events” involving Beach Beauty, Talent and Beauty With A Purpose.

New Zealand is represented by 20-year-old Howick advertising executive, Kay Margaret Anderson, who hopes to emulate the success of past Miss New Zealand entrants. New Zealand has reached the finals three times in the past 15 years with Lauralee Martinovich coming First Runner-Up in 1997.

Miss World 2005, premieres 7.30pm Friday, December 16 on E!
