The 93rd edition of the Miss France pageant will take place tomorrow (December 17) in Châteauroux (Centre-Val de Loire), with last year’s winner Diane Leyre crowning her successor.
All the Misses have now sat the traditional general knowledge quiz (see our photo above) with Miss Normandy scooping the highest score with 35 correct answers out of the 40 questions.
She was followed by Miss Champagne-Ardennes (32 correct questions) and Miss Rhône-Alpes (31).
The quiz is mainly multiple choice and includes questions on geography, history, news, pop culture and sport as well as some on logic and maths. There were also grammar questions and translations from English to French.
Contestants were also asked to translate the following quote from actor Emma Watson : “Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It's about freedom. It's about liberation. It's about equality.”
Each Miss’s score is taken into account in the jury’s pre-selection ranking, which eliminates 15 of the 30 Misses ahead of the contest’s semi-finals. The final on December 17 will be shown on channel TF1.
The Connexion was sent the questionnaire by Miss France’s organisers and we decided to give it a go.
We missed out the translation and grammar points to leave 34 questions. Our winner, who is French, scored 31. Three others scored above 25, one above 20 and two below 20.
