A "bikini ban" seems like it would sink most beauty pageants - or at least mess with the ratings.
But the Miss World pageant will enforce a bikini ban to comply with modesty issues that have cropped up around the contest. Most of the Miss World pageant takes place in Indonesia, which is predominantly Muslim.
A bikini ban means more sarongs during the swimsuit aspect of the show, in order to avoid further protest.
Will you still watch in spite of the bikini ban?
