''That’s the kind of African lady that will win the Miss World title,” a judge, Derrick Asetto, confessed on Saturday night when Natasha Meto was crowned the 2010 Miss World Kenya. The 20-year-old beauty queen waiting to join university this year, brushed aside stiff competition from 11 other contestants.
Natasha, will represent Kenya at the 2010 Miss World event to be held in Sanya, China on October 31. She also won a brand new Toyota IST car. Immediately after winning, when asked how she felt, she told the audience that she didn’t know how to describe her moment of fame. “I have no words to describe this moment,” she retorted. More than 2,000 aspirants from all over the country competed for the crown. Only 24 made it to the Miss World House where 12 qualified for the Grand Finale.
The judges were Miss World Kenya Franchise holder Mrs Terry Mungai, former model Tracy Ombajo, Survivor Africa contestant and model Derrick Asetto, and Robert Derby, among others. The models were subjected to fast-track-events where they were taught to catwalk. Then there was sports, public speaking, talent and language — basic Chinese phrases.
