Miss World China 2022 is Qin Zewen, why is she controversial?

Qin Zewen has been announced the new Miss World China and will represent her country at the 71st Miss World pageant.

The 25-year-old former Essence Securities employee replaces Ruan Yue, who was stripped of her title due to "accusations of misconduct violating the Miss World's purpose."

Qin's appointment as the new titleholder sparked an online controversy because she was chosen instead of the runners-up, and when you thought things couldn't get any worse, her educational qualification and employment background were also questioned.

Allegedly, she holds a degree in computer engineering as well as a master's in finance and worked as a market analyst at one of the leading securities corporations in China.

The Miss World Organization released a statement on the issue: "We are concerned with the complaints regarding the Miss China candidate that we have received. We will look into the matter and if the rules have been breached, appropriate actions will be taken."

No official date and venue have been announced yet for the 71st Miss World pageant. Around 50 contestants have already been elected so far to compete for the coveted title currently held by Poland's Karolina Bielawska.
