Miss Mongolia Enkhjin Tseveendash, 24, is one of the candidates to look out for in Miss World 2017. The Interior Design company owner recently won one of the Head-to-Head challenges and earned the Miss Multimedia award.
Tseveendash earned her Master’s degree in Industrial Design after gaining a First Class Honours Degree at the Cambridge School of Art in Interior Design. She has a special talent in Mongolian deep throat singing and she is a lyrical ballet dancer.
The two awards Tseveendash won before the Miss World 2017 grand coronation night are two spots supposedly allotted for two candidates in the Top 40 quarter finals, which will be comprised of five fast-track challenge winners, 20 Head-to-Head challenge winners and 15 candidates selected by the judges. Because Miss Mongolia won two awards, the judges are expected to select 16 candidates to advance to Top 40.
In the Head-to-Head challenge, Tseveendash belonged to the eighth group. She defeated Miss Cyprus, Miss Kenya, Miss Ireland, Miss Russia and Miss Singapore.
For the Multimedia fast-track challenge, Tseveendash stood out among the eight finalists. Here is the complete list of the results:
Miss Multimedia: Miss Mongolia Enkhjin Tseveendash
Miss India Manushi Chhillar
Miss Indonesia Achintya Holte Nilsen
Miss England Stephanie Hill
Miss Nepal Nikita Chandak
Miss Thailand Patlada Kulphakthanapat
Miss Venezuela Ana Carolina Ugarte
Miss Vietnam Do My Linh
Having won the Miss Multimedia award, Tseveendash has a good chance of placing well in Miss World 2017. Here are the previous winners of the fast-track challenge since it was introduced in 2012:
Miss India Vanya Mishra (Miss World 2012 Top 7)
Miss India Navneet Kaur Dhillon (Miss World 2013 Top 20)
Miss USA Elizabeth Safrit (Miss World 2014 Second Runner-up)
Miss Philippines Hillarie Parungao (Miss World 2015 Top 10)

Altangerel was also the People’s Choice winner in Miss World 2016. She also reached Top 24 and was the Miss Multimedia first runner-up.
