Johannesburg is the new Host Country of Miss World 2008

The Ukraine will no longer be the host country for the 2008 Miss World Beauty Pageant which is scheduled to be happening on October 4 in Kiev as announced by the Miss World Organization. The reason for the change in venue is due to the safety of the candidates since neighbor country Russia could still be at war with Georgia by pageant time.

Last Sunday August 24, the President of the Miss World Organization Mrs. Julia Morely announced that the new venue of Miss World 2008 Beauty Contest will be in Johannesburg, South Africa. The candidates will start arriving on November 16 and the finals will be held on December 12 to be held at Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.

Miss World candidates will enjoy a full South African authentic experience and during their 4 week stay will visit many exciting landmarks of South Africa.
