Mongolia has selected it Miss World candidate last night, October 22 and the lucky girl who will soon fly to Washington D.C. is Bayartsetseg Altangerel. In case her name sounds familiar, well she had represented Mongolia in international pageants before. She was Miss Earth Mongolia 2015 and she was one of the Top 16. She also competed at Miss International 2014 but she was unplaced.
Definitely her vast experience in international pageantry will boost her bid for Mongolia’s first ever Miss World crown. On top of that, Bayartsetseg is a cast member of Netflix’s hit series Marco Polo. She wants to pursue her acting career further and is setting her sights on Hollywood.
At 25 years of age, Bayartsetseg Altangerel stands 5’9″ tall. She spearheaded a community based environmental campaign and now she is co-running a mentorship program for orphan children.
Mongolia started participating at Miss World in 2005. In 2010, the country placed at the Top 25 – the only time that it managed to make it to the cut. It is currently placed at 92nd at the Big4 [soon to be Big5] Ranking which has been steadily climbing up since 2010.
