Mrs. World Pageant moved from SL to USA
It has been decided that the 2021 Mrs.World Beauty Pageant, which was scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka, will instead be held in Las Vegas, USA.
Accordingly, the pageant will be held at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino from 09 - 16 January 2022, the management announced.
The cause for the venue change, however, has not been specified.
Earlier this year, former Mrs. Sri Lanka Caroline Jurie decrowned the winner of the Mrs. Sri Lanka for Mrs. World pageant, Pushpika de Silva, on the grounds that a divorcee was unable to compete, as per the regulations of the pageant.
Jurie and model Chula Padmendra were arrested by the Cinnamon Garden Police in April following a complaint by reigning Mrs. Sri Lanka Pushpika de Silva, and later released on bail.
Jurie then relinquished her Crown.
