Miss Switzerland 2012 pageant cancelled
A lack of funding has forced organisers to cancel the 2012 Miss Switzerland competition.

As pageant director Christophe Locher told the SonntagsZeitung newspaper on Sunday, “We terribly regret the decision, but we had no choice”.

As of publication deadline Ms.Nil could not be reached for comment.

Miss Schweiz lives on at all the local cow shows, where the title is still held in honor by the local farmers.

Re: Miss Switzerland 2012 pageant cancelled

I wonder if we could have a Ms.EF contest.

interested parties please submit one head shot and one bikini photo.




Nil, I don't know... I can hardly be held accountable for what the papers say.

Last September, public service television dropped the competition in the wake of steadily falling audience figures. Afterwards, the contest found a potential new partner in private television channel 3+.
Wait, what are they doing with all the Billag money I give them every year?

All is not lost Grynch! 'Mister Switzerland' is still going to be televised...

'The Mister Switzerland contest suffered a similar fate in May 2011, when public television station SF ended its affiliation with it. However, that contest has since signed a three-year contract with 3+.'

As pageant director Christophe Locher told the SonntagsZeitung newspaper on Sunday,
“We terribly regret the decision, but we had no choice but to finally wake up & realise that the rest of western Europe lost interest this tacky shit back in the 80's & we thought it was probably time to follow suit”.

So does the current Miss Schweiz retain the title in perpetuity?
