Miss World Bangladesh is the national beauty pageant of Bangladesh. The event was created to give Bangladesh the opportunity to participate in the "Miss World" pageant.[1] In October 2017, Jannatul Nayeem Avril became the first ever Miss World Bangladesh. She was stripped of her title one week later, after it was discovered that she was not 16, but 27 years old[2] and had been previously married[3]. Jessia Islam, the first runner-up, was declared the winner and represented Bangladesh at Miss World 2017 where she placed in the top 40.[4]

About the Event[edit]
