“The first contest was the sports contest. We developed it on our own. This show was dedicated to successful performance of our national team at the Olympics.

One more new contest (bikini contest) was introduced this year. It was the first time when our girls cat-walked in two-piece swimsuit without pareos (beach wraps). I was quiet brave act on our part. However, it is one of the stages at Miss Kazakhstan, Miss World and Miss Universe beauty contests,” Seitov said. According to him, the jury chose a new leader after the bikini contest. The pageant finished with evening gowns contest where the girls had a chance to choose the evening gown they liked.
