Miss Tourism Queen International 2013 (1st Update): The Official Candidates

After the successes of Miss Supranational 2013 and Miss World 2013, I set my eyes on Miss Tourism Queen International 2013. The pageant was founded by Charlie See and already had 7 editions, starting in 2004. The pageant has been in China ever since it started. Looking at its history, the pageant was about to take off – reaching 100+ delegates already – until it decided not to hold a 2012 pageant. It is a big set back but good thing they made it this year. Despite a disappointing 44 candidate roster, the pageant continued with several activities lined up to promote tourism and a finale is set on October 10  October 3. I am lowering my expectations and I also can’t cover extensively BUT I hope that this is the start of a well-planned recovery and the start of bigger and better pageant production to come.

I am pleased to share with you the official candidates of Miss Tourism Queen International (MTQI) 2013:

Do you have favorites already?!? I have some ladies here but I want to see candid photos and check-out more videos before I decide on my favorites! I am a bit disappointed with the quality of candidates! Some performing countries are absent such as Colombia, Puerto Rico and Venezuela. There is even no host candidate as visibly absent is a delegate from China! A bit weird noh? What do you think?
