Megan Young of the Philippines was crowned Miss World 2013 on Sunday night in Bali, amid threats from hardline Islamic groups that caused extra-tight security at the pageant. Indonesian Muslims had protested the ceremony has being “against their religion,” and, as a result, this year’s contest featured sarongs instead of two-piece bikinis. Young’s win comes just weeks after Nina Davuluri became the first Indian-American to win the Miss America pageant (unaffiliated with Miss World). Young, 23, was born in the U.S. and moved to the Philippines at the age of 10. Maybe the American dream is dead after all.
