While Indonesia was expected to host Miss World 2017, now it is more interesting as Miss Universe 2017 is also expected to be in China around the same time. Since some countries send their representative to both Miss Universe and Miss World, if the rumours are true, then which contestants choose which pageant over the other pageant is going to be exciting.
Official announcement by MWO to take place soon! Last year they announced Washington DC to license holders in July, but the official confirmation took place 2 months later.
