She goes from one pageant to the next...


Barely three days after her last outing, 20-year-old Priyadharshni V. Sethuraj is back on the beauty pageant circuit again.

She was a finalist at the Miss World Singapore last Sunday and is also in the Top 20 of Miss Singapore Beauty Pageant 2013.

Besides that, she also participated in the Miss Singapore Beauty Pageant last year and is planning to join Miss Universe Singapore next year.

The 1.66m-tall pre-school teacher said: "I do feel exhausted, as I am going from one beauty contest to the next, but taking part in these different pageants allows me to learn many different things and improve myself.

"For example, my experience in Miss World Singapore taught me how to do a good catwalk, something that I can apply to this pageant."

Miss Priyadharshni has been interested in modelling since young and feels that taking part in pageants is a good way for her to break into the industry.

However, more exposure also means she has to deal with greater scrutiny - but that's not stopping her from following her passion.

Miss Priyadharshni said that she received flak online for wearing a bikini on stage during the Miss World Singapore contest.

"The netizens commented that I should be fully covered up because I am an Indian girl and should be more conservative, and they made nasty remarks.

But I am not affected. The swimwear segment is compulsory in every beauty pageant and I think it's fine as long as our dignity is preserved.

"Moreover, my parents are very supportive, telling me that life is short and I should pursue my dream."

S**** the contest lah! Maybe these girls are beautiful within, but certainly cannot consider them beauties for looks. Nothing to gawk at.

Isn't it obvious that Priyadharshni V. Sethuraj is considered FAT FAT FAT as compared to Ms Che and Ms Chui. Look at that elephant thighs of hers with the swimwear. Observe carefully that her red bikini is even larger in size than a typical model!
