    Miss World

    Miss World becomes known as a competition that takes place every year around the world where different women participate to get judged as the worthiest of the title. Various features get assessed by the judges that range from asking different questions from the contestants that help in getting to know their true nature and confidence among others. Another contest becomes the show in the swim suits where the bodies are calibrated according to the requirement of the people selecting. Another similar feature includes coming out in public wearing a suit of choice that may attract individuals and judges. Although mostly the people choosing have the right to choose the winner, separate voting takes place among the public on television to see how their views compliment that of the judges. Initially, the competition took place in the United Kingdom, but now the location keeps on changing every year to give it a different touch. Most of the focus stays on the body of the women, but now different attributes such as intelligence, talent, and other features become part of the selection process. The judges have the right to choose the winner at any time and set different criteria which the women have to follow. Most of the winners either get a tiara that they wear or other prizes such as scholarships, fashion contracts, cash and money among others. Many people are a fan of such competitions, but the critics call it sexist as it focuses just on females. It is the oldest game in the world that has continued since 1951.

    Miss Universe

    Miss Universe becomes known as a competition that takes place every year in the universe where different women participate to be judged as the worthiest of the title. It started a year later in 1952 but gained prominence ever since. Initially, most women were judged on their bodies, especially the bikini wearing models got preferred over the ones that did not. The standard was banned some years later so that people from other countries could participate but now again has become a compulsion. It has more prominence within the United States, and most of the winners and participants come from the American region, it has had its fair share of controversies and therefore the current television channel that kept the rights has refused to air it recently. The title “Miss Universe” was first used by the International Pageant of Pulchritude in 1926 but the yearly based competition started very late. The competition got known by the name of Miss America in the beginning but later changed to a more apt title. The winner of this contest gets many prizes among which include the scholarship to some university, cash prize or some contract with a famous fashion company within the country. Although it takes place mostly within the United States, many South American countries and now Asian countries have become host to give it a universal look. Most of the contestants get selected by the local bodies from the countries, and nature keeps on changing every year based on the categories that get included.
