Choos­ing a new queen

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - WOMAN -

Things heat up at Beau­ty­Camp as the se­lec­tion process is un­der­way for a new Miss Uni­verse Malaysia.

THE quest for Miss Uni­verse Malaysia 2012 started off with 19 fi­nal­ists and so far, four girls have been elim­i­nated un­der a re­al­ity tele­vi­sion show that is part of the se­lec­tion process for the win­ner.

The show Beau­ty­Camp: The Search For Miss Uni­verse Malaysia 2012 rep­re­sents a new for­mat of pro­gram­ming for Malaysian tele­vi­sion, and it also marks the first time in South­East Asia that a re­al­ity TV show is used to pick the win­ner of the Miss Uni­verse 2012 national ti­tle.

There are six one-hour episodes be­ing shown on Astro Hitz.TV chan­nel 705, which will cul­mi­nate in a live broad­cast of a two-hour gala night when the new Miss Uni­verse Malaysia 2012 can­di­date will be crowned in Novem­ber at the Sun­way Con­ven­tion Cen­tre in Petaling Jaya, Se­lan­gor. There will be web cap­sule episodes online as well be­hind-the-scene ex­cerpts and ex­tended views of con­tent.

The Miss Uni­verse Malaysia is part of the in­ter­na­tional Miss Uni­verse fran­chise, owned and man­aged by Trump Or­gan­i­sa­tion in a joint ven­ture with NBC Uni­ver­sal. An­drea Fon­seka (the national di­rec­tor and Miss Uni­verse Malaysia 2004) has un­der­taken the project to groom, train and ul­ti­mately take Miss Uni­verse Malaysia to the top line-up at the Miss Uni­verse pageant. One of the main spon­sors of the event is Nes­tle Fit­nesse.

This week, we take a look at a se­lec­tion of the re­main­ing con­tes­tants. Mag­daleneWangSiKar,19 Home­town: Perak Pro­fes­sion: Stu­dent Height: 174cm
