Twenty-five young women competed in the first national pageant for Miss Universe Denmark under a new directorship led by Anders de Voss of ADV Productions ("Face Of Denmark"). The co-hosts for the show were British male model Rob Evans and former Miss Universe Zaklina Sojic. Among the judges included Miss Earth 2009 Larissa Ramos Tramontin and Rafa Delfin, director of Critical Beauty.
Claims of mistreatment, fake candidates, sexual improprieties, danger, and deceit (lots of it!)
Alan Sim posted his response to the Australian delegate's claims, denies any wrongdoing that he had been accused of and tries in vain to explain his side of the story, even educating the readers about "cultural" differences between Koreans and non-Koreans. If that were the case, one would think that the foreigners should have been given a crash course on Korean customs and mentality, right?
I was a candidate at the Miss World Beauty Queen 2015 pageant held in Korea 12-24 August, which turned out to be a disaster and I feel the need to speak about that. The organizers of this pageant Alan Sim and “president” Jung-Hoon Jun turned out to be fake and unprofessional. They rather used us to do promotionalwork for different nightclubs and different alcohol brands.When I arrived I was shocked, cause instead of 30 candidates arrived only 11 from another countries and +2 local girls. The others had canceled their trip in the last minute, as I understood. The accommodation was organized in one under-renovation Hotel called Sunshine (Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea). The food that they gave us was fast (junk) food: pizzas, hamburgers, Korean fast food from day to day, seems like that they just wanted save money on our expense. Many girls felt sick after eating local fast food, including me.Because of the lack of girls, the “president” invited her friends to be fake candidates who actually lived in Korea: Kosova, Siberia, Singapore and Hong Kong, were all actually locals, to do the show in the nightclub. The candidate who was pretending to represent Hong Kong was in fact the organizers assistant by the name of Juliet (Ji Ni).*Sponsor from nightclubFirst weekend (2 nights) modeling and promoting the nightclub they put 3 cardboard boxes as stairs on the way to stage, that what we had to walk up. On the first night Miss Indonesia hurt herself falling off the stairs on her heels and the organizer didn’t even care. Show had to go on like this. Her leg and her hand were badly injured because of that.The next day (Sunday) with 3 hours of sleep first group of girls had to be ready (with hair and make-up) for bikini photo-shoot. I stood up and went to ask from organizers assistant Juliet, can they maybe have an extra hour sleep, cause we were tired and weak from the night, and she got mad and started screaming that who am I to complain. The photo-shoot was taken individually in one dirty underground studio with about 12 photographers. Girls , me included, were asked to take “sexy” poses which were insulting and demeaning, I said that “I don’t do porn!” and also other girls refused doing poses which belong to men’s magazine. We don’t even know where they used these photos. They didn’t answer that.*Sponsor from plastic surgeryWe were made to “consult” with the doctors from plastic surgery, that they could have pictures with us for their advertisement.*Pre judgement held in a nightclub 21st of AugustFirst organizers let us know that the pre judgement is held in a hotel, later it turns out that it’s held in a nightclub inside the hotel. Also the way to the stage (small stairs) was dangerous for girls with big dresses and high heels. Miss Thailand’s dress got stuck on the stairs but luckily she didn’t fall. We had to do a show with national dress, evening gown and bikini. There where girls who felt uncomfortable doing bikini show in front of drunk people who where partying.
After the show we had to stay for some champagne, although the contract forbids us from drinking alcoholic beverages during the pageant, we were offered alcohol on many occasions. The organizers were paid for us sitting with men (over 35 or 40 years old) who were rude, trying to touch girls genital region, breasts, asking phone numbers, asking which hotel (and room) we are staying and offering money. It was all in front our organizer assistant Juliet, who was supposed to take care of us but instead she took a cheque from the men.
When we got ready to go back to our hotel it turned out that some of the girls national gifts were stolen from our backstage (Australias and Indias).
*Final at Tiger Beach 22nd of August
(Held in front of no more than 15 people in the audience)
Miss Japan won the title, who was actually a good friend to Jung Hoon Jun, who invited her to attend this pageant. After the final one the girls had acquired a copy of Miss Japan's passport which we were shown and it showed she isn’t 25 years old as she said, instead it turned out she is 31 years of age, born in 1984. Her age automatically disqualified her from this pageant yet she somehow won the pageant. After the final the organizers of the pageant were done with us, we were left to fend for ourselves, we had to buy our own meals and arrange our own transportation to the airport.
I write this statement for potential candidates and directors wishing to work with these organizers Alan Sim and Jung-Hoon Jun and their assistant Juliet (Ji Ni) to please take care and reconsider involving yourself in a pageant involved with them. (End)

and to endorse two types of alcohol.

Equally disgusted was Miss Estonia's national director, Tiina Janston, who gave her strong opinion on the matter:
|Care to guess which of these contestants are real and which ones are fake? LOL|
|The nightclub were the "pre-judgment final" was held. The girls felt uncomfortable doing a bikini show in front of drunken men.|
So there you have it. Another bogus pageant with the most generic and uninteresting name - World Beauty Queen - organized by two men who preyed on gullible young women and exploited them for financial gain. Fortunately, two contestants were brave and smart enough to call out on Sim and Jung-Hoon and denounce them for who they really are: partners in crime. I am sure more details will surface, but for the time being I highly advise all national directors who sent contestants to this tacky pageant to end all professional ties with Sim and Jung-Hoon, unless you prefer being in misery's company.

Critical Beauty received a message from Kazue Oshima herself requesting to have the photo of her passport removed, which we have done. She also gave her correct age - 30 - and not 31 as we had originally posted.
Critical Beauty received an e-mail from a pageant fan (who prefers to be called "Ian") who claims that the pageant results had been rigged to purposely eliminate Aisha, a heavy favorite, and to make Hilda the winner, and that Hilda and the pageant owner have known each other for years. The e-mail states (as is):
Hello I'm not very good at writing but I have talked to the contestants ofMiss Universe Ghana and they have all said that the pageant was rigged for theWinner Hilda Akua.. Well here's some info Aisha and Yaya Zoe were the majorfavourites because of their good looks and strong catwalks During the Q&A thegirls werent supposed to hear the question because they were all answering thesame one...so the Top 5 was called but aisha was left out and they were calledin this order first Vanessa, second Marie, 3rd Hilda, 4th Yaya then last Ekua..But then somehow Hilda was called last to answer the Question and she heard thequestion backstage giving her time to analyze the question.... she eventuallywon.. 1st RU went to Yaya Zoe and the crowd was not happy at all in fact theywere cheering for Aisha and Yaya Zoe to win.. It's apparent that the girls knowthe pageant was rigged (I talked to aisha and yaya zoe) yaya also said Aisha wasrobbed of a spot in the top 5...i know for a fact they didnt put aisha in thetop 5 cause if she answered the q&a she would have definitely aced it andultimately won the title.. The whole pageant is rigged! Please Please shed somelight to this issue the girls deserve it.. I will send a video soon of howunfair the pageant was please dont show my email hide me under the name "Ian"thanks!
Hilda Akua and the new Owner of MUG have been friends for years
