Miss UK 2017 Zoiey Smale Gave Back Her Crown After She Was, Inexplicably, Told To Lose Weight

by 2 years ago

Last October we brought you the story of how 20-year-old Miss Iceland Arna Ýr Jónsdóttir was told she should “stop eating” by the founder of the Miss Grand International Pageant. Awesomely, her reaction to the organizers of the event was to tell them to get bent and dropped out of the competition.

Welp, it’s happened again, only this time, Miss UK 2017 Zoiey Smale decided to hell with the whole thing and just up and gave her crown back.

Reports The Telegraph

Zoiey Smale, 28, from Nottinghamshire, was named Miss UK after winning the UK round of the Miss United Continents contest in June this year.

But, as she prepared for the final round of the competition in Ecuador, Miss Smale said the organisers told her she needed to “lose as much weight as possible” to stand a chance.

The mother-of-one was left gobsmacked after speaking to the competition’s national director who said she was passing on feedback from the international director.

All Miss Smale could say was “pardon?”, before hanging up the phone.
