Miss Grand International 2022 contestants depart for Bali, Indonesia

The 10th Miss Grand International competition is about to start in Bali, Indonesia as the contestants from around the world depart for the host country.

Seventy-two beauties are expected to arrive on October 3 and 4. Three new countries consisting of DR Congo, Kyrgyzstan, and Mozambique will debut this year.

The contestants will be officially welcomed during the traditional sashing ceremony on October 5 and the Top 10 with the highest social media votes will have a special dinner with MGI President Nawat Itsaragrisil.

In the next three weeks, the contestants will go through pre-pageant activities, photoshoots, rehearsals, and preliminary competitions leading to the final show on October 25 in Jakarta, where Nguyen Thuc Thuy Tien of Vietnam will relinquish her reign.

This is the fifth time Miss Grand International is being held outside Thailand since the pageant was established in 2013 and this is Indonesia's first time as the host country.

The new crown by George Wittels awaits the next Miss Grand International:
