Miss Bangladesh 2017 Contestants

Pageant Information

Occasionally in pageantry, a titleholder loses her title either because of mistaken results or contract violations and everything in between. One Bangladeshi queen has recently relinquished her title just days after she won it.

About the Miss World Bangladesh pageant

Last Friday, the 2017 Miss World Bangladesh pageant was held at the Bashundhara Convention Centre in Dhaka. The winner and new miss World Bangladesh was Jannatul Nayeem Avril. Avril was set to represent Bangladesh at the Miss World pageant to take place in China in November.

Yesterday, the Miss World Bangladesh organizers, Antar Showbiz and Omicon Entertainment, announced that Avril was being stripped of the title due to lying about her marital status. According to organizers, Avril had withheld information about her previous marriage and was therefore ineligible to hold the title. The Miss World Organization has a rule stipulating that contestants are “not be married nor have ever been married or have children."

Organizers also announced that the 1st Runner-up, Jessia Islam, will take Avril's place as the reigning Miss World Bangladesh. This means Islam will also represent the country at the international pageant coming up. (Read: Miss World 2017 to be Held in China)

About the controversy over the results

This change of titleholder comes as a relief to many, including judges of the 2017 Miss World Bangladesh pageant. Just moments after the crowning of Avril, judges and audience members thought something had gone terribly wrong. Judge Shampa Reza spoke out about Avril not being among any of the judges' preferences to win. (Read: How to Tell If a Pageant Is Rigged)

In the days following the result, other judges had anonymously come forward with accusations about an altered result. Many believed that the organizers had rigged the pageant in favor of Avril but did not have a reason why. The organizers responded by saying that they were looking into the results and would announce any updates they found. (Read more: Judge Alleges Miss World Bangladesh Results Manipulated)
