Describing the German-born Derleth as “the porcelain Adonis,” the QWU organisers say they are honoured to have him as part of their final ceremony. The 2012 pageant will finally feature Miss Fiji, who has previously had trouble getting in to the country. There will also be a third MC Brad Hills, and a special dedication to Whitney Houston, Donna Summer and Amy Winehouse. The event will also seek to once again break its own Guinness World Record for “Largest Onstage Drag Show”.
