Mr. Duy Quach – Chairman of Fitness Model World Vietnam – shared that some contestants showed a lack of restraint. According to him, when introducing the place of his birth on a beauty contest stage, candidates should show pride, seriousness, and appropriate emphasis.

For me when introducing my name, hometown, The most important thing is to be clear, the other elements should only be the highlight and need to be subtle,” said Kenbi Khanh Pham.
Khoi Tran (25 years old, Ho Chi Minh City) said: “Many parts of chanting my name feel like ‘screaming in the ears’ of the audience, startling, lacking in luxury”. Audience Quang Nguyen (32 years old, Go Vap district) said that in the midst of the current reality of many contests, the title of Miss is overlooked, the contest needs to pay attention to the content and form of expression instead of the displays appear ridiculous, causing discomfort.

The name chanting part is the highlight, creating more color and entertainment for the contest, and at the same time expressing the contestants’ personalities. In 2021, Nguyen Thuc Thuy Tien competed at Miss Grand International in Thailand, showing off her introduction and shouting the name of Vietnam with a confident demeanor, a long breath, and attention in the semi-finals and finals. Many domestic and foreign audiences said they were excited about Thuy Tien’s performance.

The introduction style is completely created by the contestants.

We welcome suggestions, communicate to the contestants, let the performance in the round. The next one is better,” Dung said.
