Beauty with brains is the criteria for selecting the top most model of the world. Along with the swimsuit round, which is the most popular round in beauty pageants, the question and answer round is also equally awaited by the audience.

Beauty pageants are one of the most anticipated events every year. And the pressure which piles up throughout the year for the day is clearly evident in the performance of the contestants during the entire event. Looking beautiful is only one of the criteria for getting crowned as the top most beautiful woman in the world. Apart from looks, exuding confidence while speaking and presenting yourself is also extremely necessary. Cracking the question and answer round of beauty pageants is a nightmare for the contestants as this is an extremely decisive round which can make or break their future.
