I notice for the past three years observing the Miss Grand International Pageant. they spent a lot of money on Staging,Production and Pageant blog publicity (You know paying some pageant site to 'over hype' the MGI). they where trying to mimic Miss Universe. Remember The Miss Universe have the highest Franchise Fees on all pageant history, with Multiple businesses support. And one of the highest value on air rights on television (Next to the Oscars & Grammys) You can't just spend all the organisation money on a 'lavish' staging and amazing production. Because running an organisation works for the whole year.
Miss Earth is not a Overnight success it took them years before local pageants notice them. Miss Earth is just like Miss World they don't spend a lot of money on Staging, Finals Night Production. So what if the Miss earth finals night is a bit 'tacky' or the staging is not that great, at least they still got international broadcasters from europe and asia buying Air rights so they can show it on free TV, More Air rights than Miss International. While last year, Miss Grand International have to pay StarWorld Asia to let them air their pageant on TV, theres no Money on Live Stream. Miss Earth Does a lot of Missionary work around Asia and The African Continent. And a Beauty Pageant recognise and support of the United Nation.
I'm not saying that Miss Grand International will not gain BIG 4 Pageant Status, but soon. MGI needs to learn heaps in the pageant world. I do think that someday Miss Grand International will surpass Miss Supranational if they keep doing that Horrible (Not Classy) Swimsuit portion 'Twice' on the pageant night. Obviously that Beauty Pageant was made for Straight Men, Those poor Girls i feel so bad with the delegates. ONE SWIMSUIT PORTION IS ENOUGH ON THE FINALS!
So Just a Tip For Miss Grand International Do it slowly and learn as they grow each year. there's always room for a new Beauty Pageants is this world.
