Miss World 2004

Miss World 2004, the 54th Miss World pageant was held at the Crown of Beauty Theatre, Sanya, and People’s Republic of China on December 6, 2004. The 2004 pageant marks the second straight year that Sanya played host of the pageant. Miss World 2003, Rosanna Davison of Ireland crowned her successor María Julia Mantilla of Peru. 107 contestants from all over the world competed for the crown marking at that time, the biggest turnout in the pageant's 54 year history. That record was held until Miss World 2008 where 109 nations sent representatives. It is also regarded as having the largest global vote made since the pageant entire results were decided by votes cast by viewers via the internet and SMS. Five contestants were "Fast Tracked" to the semifinals with the remaining ten determined by the global vote.
