The Miss World Fiji 2012 Pageant is under scrutiny following a plethora of allegations, including that the winner was pre-determined well before the judging panel deliberated. Although the pageant concluded about two weeks ago, the Miss World Organisation has yet to add the winner of the Fiji franchise, Torika Watters, to the list of winners on its official website. The organisation has yet to respond to queries e-mailed to it last week.
