Miss World 2010, the 60th anniversary of the Miss World pageant was held on October 30, 2010,[1] in Sanya, People's Republic of China;[1] after Vietnam backed out of the hosting contract.[6] Kaiane Aldorino of Gibraltar crowned her successor Alexandria Mills of the United States as Miss World 2010.[3]

Venue[edit]

Vietnam backed out[edit]

On June 8, 2009, Mr.Hoang Kieu (RAAS Group Chairman) and Mrs. Morley publicly agreed on Nha Trang as host for Miss World 2010.

According to a manager of the Tien Giang Tourism JS Company, RAAS bought 31 hectares in total to build a tourism site for Miss World 2010, which lead to a public debate about some national ecological reserves being devastated and people having to leave their homes due to increasing living costs.[7][8]

On January 28, 2010, RAAS told Khanh Hoa People's Committee office to announce that they were no longer organizing the event without an official explanation on the debate. Khanh Hoa Province then decided to host Miss World with new sponsors. RAAS would return as the main sponsor if another province was assigned as host.[9][10]

Finally on April 2, 2010, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan approved a proposal by the host province Khanh Hoa to back out of hosting Miss World.[11]

Although Miss World 2010 was held in Sanya, China, RAAS Group was still in charge of the financial backing for the event. RAAS confirmed that Miss World would be back to Mỹ Tho, Tien Giang Province later in 2011 or 2012.[12] However, according to many reliable newswire such as VnExpress, there is no way for Miss World being organized in Tien Giang Province in 2011 or 2012 under the umbrella of RAAS because Mr. Hoang Kieu owed the landlords in the province, involved in the tourism project millions of dollars,[13]
