Winners of Miss Singapore pageant unveiled

The winners of the Miss Singapore Beauty Pageant 2017 were announced at Concorde Hotel on Friday night (Aug 25).

The pageant, which is open to Singaporeans and Permanent Residents (PR) here, stirred controversy earlier in July when an unofficial photo of the finalists surfaced online.

Many netizens questioned the women's calibre and criticised their physical appearances by saying they were not attractive enough or did not look "Singaporean".

Six of the finalists are PRs, with three originally from China and three from Malaysia.

According to The Straits Times, three out of the four winners are students while the other is a financial consultant. The titles went to:

Miss Grand Singapore: Ms Crystal Lim, 22
Miss Singapore Global Beauty Queen: Ms Amanda Li, 19
Miss Singapore Chinatown: Christina Cai, 18
Miss Singapore Tourism Queen: Tricia Koh, 25

They will go on to represent Singapore internationally.
