More than 100 nations around the world were able to watch the highly anticipated Miss World final presentation live on Wednesday, March 16, following a coronavirus outbreak that forced the event in Puerto Rico to be postponed in December due to a coronavirus epidemic. Miss World 2020, Tony-Ann Singh, crowned the new beauty queen in front of 40 semi-finalists on the island.
Karolina Biewleska of Poland has been crowned Miss World for the first time.
The first runner-up was Shree Saini from the United States of America.
While the second runner-up was Olivia Yace of Cote d’Ivoire.
Carla Yules from Indonesia, Karolina Vidales from Mexico, and Anna Leitch from Northern Ireland all made the top six.
After being crowned by Toni-Ann Singh a tearful Karolina said: “When I heard my name I was shocked, I still can’t believe it. I am honoured to wear the Miss World crown and can’t wait to get to work. I will remember this amazing chapter in Puerto Rico for the rest of my life.”

Nigeria’s rep Oluchi Madubuike did not make the Top 20 list but we are so proud of her for all her hard work and amazing zest in the past couple of months during the competition.
