KATHMANDU: May 6 is the day when Miss Nepal 2012 will be announced. But the 16 contestants who are competing for the title of Pashupati Paints Luxuria The Hidden Treasure Miss Nepal 2012 have somewhat reserved their places in another round of grand finale with their performance at pre-judging round held on May 1 at Hotel de l’Annapurna, Durbar Marg.
It is one of the important rounds for the contestants as “overall beauty is evaluated in this round” as shared by Girendra Man Rajbansi, one of the directors of The Hidden Treasure.
Pre-judging is also important because it has more than 50 per cent say on who are going be in Top 10 at the grand finale of the pageant.
“It would be unfair to just judge them on stage. They should be judged in every aspect and up close, which is what pre-judging does,” Rajbansi said on the importance of pre-judging round.
The contestants had a tough day as each of them faced 11 judges in the pre-judging round. They faced judges like Miss Nepal 2010 Sadikshya Shrestha, Programme Co-ordinator of Growing Holistic Approaches For Rehabilitation Amrita Gyawali, actress Richa Sharma to name a few. And they were marked on the basis of their confidence, personality, expression, and intelligence, among others. — HNS
