In competition against women from more than 100 countries, the personable Kentucky resident, Alexandria Mills, surprised several in attendance with her win at Saturday night's contest in southern China. As several reports indicate, the tall blonde was a relative “underdog” winner after media speculation focused on other competitors.

Coming in second at the contest was Botswana resident, Emma Wareus, whereas third place was awarded to Adriana Vasini of Venezuela. The host country's own contestant, Tang Xiao, also placed among the final five.

Mills takes over the honorary title from Kaiane Aldorino of Gibraltar, who was named Miss World 2009 at a ceremony in South Africa last December.
2010 marks the 60th year of the Miss World Competition, and, according to several media groups, the event’s organizers brought back several contestants from past decades to give the night a retrospective theme as well.
