KATHMANDU: Add brain to beauty and striking personality — you get your Miss Nepal. Everyone is talented in their own ways, so are our 18 contestants of Fanta The Hidden Treasure Miss Nepal 2013. The question is who is the most talented to win the subtitle of the pageant — Miss Talent? And it was answered on March 11 at the Russian Culture Centre.
In the allocated time of five minutes for each of them, the girls sang, danced, acted and painted. There were dress designing, one act play, speeches on current issues of rape and safety on stage. Meanwhile, Kumari dance and fusion dance rocked the stage. And aspiring singers crooned numbers like Ukali Oraliharuma.
Judging them was the winner of Miss Talent of Miss Nepal 2011 Bishnu Chemjong. She is also a singer. It was quite an experience for her to see the girls perform on the same stage where she had won the hearts of the judges two years ago.
“The contestants were nervous and I could see it. They were feeling the same butterflies that I had felt then,” she expressed adding, “It was fun. In the seat of a judge, I was relaxed and there was no pressure.”
When she watched the girls displaying their talent, Chemjong realised “the girls are amateurs but they seemed like professionals in whatever they put up”. As per her, the contestants are talented and remarked that they some are tough contenders for the title of Fanta Miss Nepal 2013.
Other judges included Rupesh Pradhan, one of the directors of The Hidden Treasure, dancer Gobind Rai and Chandra Rabi Shrestha, President of Kathmandu Jaycees.
The winner will be revealed at the grand finale on March 20 at Nepal Academy Hall. Annapurna Post is the official print partner and THT Live is the voting partner of the event.
