Biography[edit]

Kuchařová was born on 23 December 1987 in Czechoslovakia. Her hometown is Trnava, nowadays located in Slovakia. She lives in Opočno, a small town in the north of the Czech Republic. In 2006, aged 18, whilst studying at a grammar school, Kuchařová competed in the Czech Miss 2006 competition, and won it. This triumph guaranteed the participation in Miss World, which took place in Warsaw. Kuchařová won Miss World too, which made her well-known all over the world.

Miss World 2006[edit]

Kuchařová beat 103 other women in voting among a panel of judges and from television viewers around the world during a two-hour finals ceremony in the Polish capital, where the president of Warsaw watched the finals, and presented the new Miss World with a scroll, dubbing her as an honorary ambassador of Warsaw, and asking her to carry a message of peace around the world.

Kuchařová, a 177 cm tall high school student with long blond hair, was born in Trnava, Slovakia and grew up in the town of Opočno, Czech Republic.[4] She told the judges that she wants to attend university and then become a model, which she hopes will enable her to travel.

In December 2006 she appeared in a fashion video, directed and produced by Alexander Schukoff in Vienna for Fashion TV.

Kuchařová handed over her crown on 1 December 2007, to the next Miss World, Zhang Zilin of China in Sanya, China.[5] Amongst the countries she travelled to during her reign were Poland, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, United States, China, Russia, South Africa, United Kingdom, Trinidad and Tobago, Fiji, Ireland, Iceland, Croatia, San Marino, Northern Ireland, Russia, Sri Lanka and Latvia.

She subsequently graduated from high school nine months after winning the title.[4]

Brzobohatá was a member of the Czech delegation led by the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Jana Maláčová. We held two seminars during the meeting. The first was organized by the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic, headed by the Human Rights Commissioner Martina Štěpánková, and focused on youth in connection with the prevention of sexual and partner violence. The second side event of our delegation concerned changes in family policy and support for the availability of different forms of care. In addition to Brzobohatá and the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Jana Malacova, representatives of New Zealand, France and UNFPA also attended this seminar. We have dealt with what all family informal care means and who it affects. Worldwide, the main carers are women. Brzobohatá's contribution was about the price they have to pay for taking care of their loved ones, be they children or later parents or grandparents. The price is lower pensions and major labor market disadvantages.
