Megan Young, who is U.S. born and only 23 years old, managed to kick the ass of 126 other contestants on the Indonesian island of Bali — and then she immediately promised to be the 'best Miss World ever.'
Can she live up to that promise?? Who knows!
What we do know is that Miss France, Marine Lorphelin, came in second and is probably furious that she came so close to the title. Miss Ghana, Carranzar Naa Okailey Shooter, came in third.
If you're wondering how it is that a young woman from the U.S. won the title for the Philippines, especially with a decidedly U.S. name like Megan Young, well she moved to the country at 10 years old.
We never said it was going to be a long story! LOLz!
She said she would:
"be myself in everything I do, to share what I know and to educate people."
Make good on that promise, Megan! The world is watching!
