​Miss Malta Hopefuls' First Challenge Is A Compilation Of Hilariously Cringy Stereotypes From All Around The World

Afghanistan's is just something else


As hopefuls from all around the island begin their voyage towards being crowned Miss Malta 2018, the first weekly challenge has been revealed. And boy is it something else.

The challenge consisted of the models posing for different photos, all with very specific themes. "A city or country which fascinates me" seems to have been the assignment, but some of the photos have already raised some eyebrows.

Within minutes of posting the photos, the Miss Malta official Facebook page put out a disclaimer that "all models sorted out their photos from beginning till the end", going on to say that the official photographers were not involved.

Here are some of the highlights. Brace yourselves.

1. Miss Cospicua is a geisha... from China

2. Miss Dingli channelling some of that New Zealand tribal tattoo aesthetic

3. Miss Fgura got Russia... so of course, she headed to Havana 808 with a bottle of vodka (and a very French bottle of Moët)

4. Greetings from the desert of Dubai, courtesy of Miss Mqabba

5. Jah man, Miss Qormi is straight outta Jamaica

6. Sushi, a fan, and a Honda Civic? Of course it's Japan, Miss San Ġwann

7. Miss Sliema is a walking hieroglyph for Egypt

8. The actual pièce de résistance: Miss Mtarfa. Doing Afghanistan. By standing behind a tree. Holding a gun.
