a�?Like I said from the very beginning, the competition is tough this year, all the 25 contestants vying for the coveted crown were equally competent. I am sure the judges had a difficult task. Also, the girls displayed great personality and presence on stage, I have never received such positive vibes in the past,a�? Kakshapati said. He added, a�?I am happy for all the four contestantsa��Shrinkhala, Manita, Priya and Ronali for winning the titles,a�? he said. In a departure from previous years, the gala event drew largely positive responses from viewers, particularly for the poised answers delivered by the contestants in the final rounds. The show was, however, not free of glitches with several power outages (including one during the crowning) marring the programme. a�?You were under the illusion that this was an international event,a�? the host for the evening, Suraj Giri, had joked at one point about the power outage, a�?We had to bring you back to reality that the show is being hosted in Nepal.a�? The four winners will now start preparations for international pageants set to be held later this year. According to Kakshapati, no official confirmation has been made by the international pageants on the dates yet.
