Pretty sure she went to High School here in Canberra also.

I heard Merici mentioned on the radio this morning, others too, but don’t remember them.

Pity we don’t see the same level of interest in the MIss Australia “just won a NHMRC grant” for instance. I can’t believe these contests still exist.

Why not? Surely it’s better than ugly pageants…

The Miss Universe contestants from amoeba slimes of Titan are FAR hotter than the Earth entrants. RRRRaaaarrrrr….

No contest at all. Unless Venuzuela wins again.

That is how it works, right?

I sincerely hope so.

The Miss World Australia ’09 titleholder goes on to become the Australian regional contestant for the Miss World ’09 title.

Just as if the Miss Universe Australia titleholder goes on to compete and win the Miss Universe (Earth) title, presumably Miss Universe (Earth) could compete with Miss Universe (Mercury\Venus\Mars\Luna) for the Miss Universe (Sol) title, and be our designated champion, ready to defend humanity’s honour against any extrasolar beauties, by fighting them to the death in a vat of mud.

That is how it works, right?

The winner used to be called Miss Australia once upon a time.

I guess they changed it so that it does not conflict with the Miss Universe Australia franchise.

^ She is the winner of the Miss World Australia, so she will be the Australian representative in the Miss World competition.

Miss World Australia

WTF does that mean?

Forgive my ignorance, but is it the Miss World contestant Australian winner?

Someone should at least admit it makes no sense.

I did a couple of shows with Sophie a few years back when she was still in the ‘berra. Nice girl. Congrats to her for the win 🙂

She was born here, but is now a Sydney girl (working as a waitress, apparently).

SMH has this to say:
At a ceremony at Star City Casino last night, the Miss World Australia organisation crowned 24-year-old Sophie Lavers, pictured, the 2009 contender. Presented with her crown by the 2008 Miss World Australia, Katie Richardson, Lavers will contest the global title at the Miss World final in Johannesburg on December 12. The last Australian to win the title was Belinda Green in 1972. Born in Canberra, Lavers grew up in Brisbane and lives in Kings Cross where she combines her acting studies with part-time waitressing and volunteer work for the Oasis Youth Support Network.
