Bahrain’s Wafa Crowned Miss Arab World 2007

July 28th, 2007

Wafaa Yaakoub, a 23-year-old teacher from the Law Faculty of Bahrain University, is crowned as Miss Arab World 2007 after nearly six hours of contest on 28th July, Saturday. The 25-year-old Miss Egypt Shaimma Mansour and Miss Lebanon Abeer Layous, 23, became first and second runner-up. Seventeen women from 15 countries attended the final competition at the closing ceremony of the second Miss Arab World Contest.

After being crowned by Miss Arab World 2006 Claudia Hanna from Iraq, Yaakoub said she was very happy to win the title. Asked whether she would continue her teaching career after winning, Yaakoub hesitantly nodded in affirmation.

Baharaini Wafaa is first ever contestant from Bahrain to participate in Miss Arab World. Wafaa showed poise under pressure as she gave confident answers to questions from event judges, and, wearing traditional Bahraini dress, she ensured the kingdom’s first ever participation in the event was a memorable one.

Earlier, Miss Egypt, Mansour, who is a football referee, said she was attending the contest to promote Egypt’s tourism and sports.

  2. she’s so freaking ugly i don’t understand these judges
    she’s the shortest and ugliest

  3. Impressed by Beauty in Burka. Congratulations Wafaa!!

  4. really Wafa is so ugly. its something wrong with judges.
    Lebanese as ussual – perfect. I adore lebanese ladies

  5. Nata and Saad:

    It isn’t about beauty only, the contest is also based on personality, academic background, and general knowledge. Outside looks are not everything you know.

  6. am shocked how can she win with this big nose am shocked seriously as u see lots of beauty in the gulf but this is not at all

  7. With respect to all comments. Wafa is the only natural looking girl in this contents (respectable). Overall, our understanding was that this contest to select perfect Arab girl, and not celebrities.

    Wafa is beautiful, and any one think other than this needs to check his/her eyes.

  8. Assalamo Alaykom,
    How can a muslim women (especially Mohajjaba)participate in this stupid competition !!This in not the real Hijab that Allah ordered woman to do,she should not to display her beauty to the world in order to be the winner ,winner of what??? !!La hawla wala kowata illa bi allah

  9. when a woman is wearing “HIJAB” I really don’t understand why she wants to be the winner of a beauty competition… not normal!! if she wants to wear HIJAB cause she believes that women don’t have to show their beauty, she can do it!! if she wants to show her beauties (normal) she doesn’t have to put it… that’s simply clear!! if it was not a TRADITIONAL ” MISS “compétition, I could understand that it’s not about beauty.. but we clearly see that it’s about beauty.. so it’s really out
    Baaahhh!!! Crazy world!!! :))

  10. The new Miss Arab World is a very beautiful “Queen”.
    The 4 runner ups are her princesses, and should flanked, love, hug, kiss and serve the Queen.

  11. “” Assalamo Alaykom,

    by this comment you show the mentality of people from the middle ages grow-up, go take a hike or sumthing dude.

    I would have picked the Lebanese hottie, but who knows bahrainy women have nice accent too. and she is not that ugly IMO, she is average, but she could be smart.

  12. Hanane… u have a stupid and non-sense argument… apologize for these words. Couldnt describe your argument in a better way.

  13. Eissa: “STUPID / NON SENSE ARGUMENT” is a stupid way to reply… if you were smaller you could give me a clear reason and not only “STUPID ARGUMENT”…
    mine was clear and remains MINE : “My point of view”. so, try to do the same and give a clear point of view, not only answering so superficially .. t.c.

    I couldn’t describe your answer in a better way!
