The all important pre-judging event took place on the evening of the 23rd. Alex Liu, president of MTQI, Ekaterina Grushanina, Miss Tourism Queen 2009, Justine Gabionza, Miss Tourism Queen 2006, Fabrice Wattez, Manhunt International 2003/4, Sean Chia, Vice president of MTQI, Zhang Feng, Director of Asia for MTQI 2011 and 2 local judges, scored the girls in evening gowns, swimsuits and interviews. The event happened at closed doors.
Most candidates did quite well when answering the judges’ questions. Misses Siberia and Sochi lost their voices, and had difficulty talking to the judges.
The evening gown parade showed amazing diversity of styles, going from simple and elegant, to way too busy and filled with details.
