The race to Miss World

From Midday Report, 12:47 pm on 2 February 2024

The race is on to find New Zealand's Miss World contender.

Aotearoa is on a unusually fast paced audition plan to find an unmarried, childless woman aged between 16 and 27 to send for an all-expenses paid trip to compete in Miss World in India.

This weekend a panel of 15 judges will assess potential contenders for the crown in a rapid-fire selection process held in Auckland.

But rest assured it's not about parading round in your togs.

Pageant organiser Nigel Godfrey spoke to Charlotte Cook.
