ORGANISERS of the annual Miss World pageant have announced plans to eliminate the swimsuit segment of the competition, citing lack of purpose as the reason.
“The organisation has decided to take itself out of the swimsuit world because it isn’t the path they’re trying to take,” said Chris Wilmer, the national director of Miss World America/Miss United States organisation. “It’s not just a beauty contest, it’s beauty with a purpose. There didn’t seem to be a purpose to have the swimsuit.”
