Miss World Canada 2013 ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ pageant. The crowning and announcement of Camille Munro as the 2013 Miss World Canada and Tamara Jemuovic and Anastasia Lin as first and second runner-ups respectively at the River Rock Show Theatre in Richmond BC, Canada on May 09, 2013.
With contestants coming from all across Canada, the beauty pageant has been based in the Vancouver area for the last few years and doubled as a fundraising occasion for Variety, the Children Charity.
There were an evening gowns catwalk, international costumes display and bikini swimwear competition that proved to be a popular attraction over the years. Talent performances were provided by the girls themselves which included Nicole Johnston (acrobatics), Melissa Francis (opera, O Mio Babbino Caro with the audience clapping before the famous aria from Giacomo Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi was even finished) and Anastasia Lin (piano music).
Mr. World Canada 2012 Frankie Cena made a special appearance and sang as well which gained him thunderous applauses. The evening’s program was hosted by SportsCentre’s Bryan Mudryk and TV fashion personality Natalie Langston. There were some hiccups when announcing the winners which lead to a recall, but eventually got it right the second time.
After an emotional but upbeat farewell walk and speech, Tara Teng, last year’s winner relinquished her reign and crowned her successor.
Representing Canada, Camille Munro will compete at the Miss World 2013 in Bogor, Indonesia later this year in September.
Congratulations, Camille Munroe!!
