  8. 8. 1) Most of contestants are found totally degrading: • No woman with any self-respect would ever enter a competition like this • They are like a cattle market. Girls look like puppets on the stage. • It’s awful when they show their body and appearance in sexy costume in public
  9. 9. 2) The value of beauty is false • They would look just as good with the make-up, clothes and light. • They often pretend themselves to answer interviewer questions politely and virtuously • At different time in different countries, there have been different ideas of beauty
  10. 10. 1) Contestants are judged on charm, intelligence and personality • Insoluble questions and social questions are put to them. If one of them is the most excellent candidates in answering them, she will be chosen. • The most beautiful and intelligent girls from everywhere in the world are chosen to take part in a beauty contest. They represent the beauty, intelligence and virtue of women of their countries.
  11. 11. 1) Contestants are judged on charm, intelligence and personality • The fact that the Miss World has joined charities, especially a large sum of money/ a grand for prize they have won in the contests is spent on charitable purposes + Everyone is interested in beauty => pay the fee ticket for show + A beauty contest is certainly a good option for our entertainment
