There was only one question given to all the Miss World 2011 finalists. The question was: Why you should be the next Miss World?

Below are the answers of the Miss World 2011 top three winners.

Miss Puerto Rico answered:

What does it take to be Miss World…it takes sympathy discipline and the willingness to help others…and I believe I possess all these qualities. If I were chosen I would work endlessly so that people that didn’t have the opportunities that I have had can accomplish their dreams and I would live eternally grateful for being able to represent that undefinable thing that is beauty and positive impact they can have when it is used with a purpose.

Miss Philippines replied:

To be Miss World is my dream job, and I say job because it has a lot of responsibilities but there’s nothing I love more than communicating with other people. As Miss World you get to use your potential and your voice to help people from all around the world, and what is more wonderful than doing what you love by helping others.

The 22-year-old Miss Venezuela won the title by answering:

I believe that the next Miss World should be a woman of sensibility and reason. I believe the woman should be committed to the organization to help people in need, a beauty with heart.

Miss Venezuela Ivian Sarcos
