     *Note:  The original #10 周爽 withdrew before the final so #11-#15 all moved up 1 number.  Also, in the initial press conference, there were 16 Finalists but one of the girls withdrew before the training period.
     The 14 Finalists competed in 4 rounds of events:  the opening number in cocktail dresses, then the lingerie round followed by evening gowns and Q&A.  Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo was on hand to judge the competition.  Official portraits were taken by famed photographer Fadil Berisha.  There were 2 winners for the Best Hair Award this year.  The results were a bit of a surprise.  The heavy favorite was #14 Karen Hu who was the winner of the Beijing region of the competition, she ended up as 1st Runner-up.  One of the favorite parts of the night for everyone was the lingerie round, in place of swimsuits.  The Finalists dressed in the whimsical costumes looked like a Victoria's Secret Fashion show and is perhaps the first time a lingerie round was held in a pageant.
Here are the stats for the Top 3:
Nora Xu - 19 years old, 1.78m tall from Luoyang.  Nora at the age of 13 already stood 1.74m tall so her mother sent her to modeling school.  In 2013, Nora won the Elite Model competition for the China region and 1st Runner-up in the 23rd annual Supermodel of the World (China) contest. She was also the youngest competitor this year.
Hu Yanliang - 24 years old, 1.80m tall, the tallest girl in the competition
Katrina Peng - 26 years old, 1.73m tall, the oldest girl in the competition
*Nora Xu will represent China at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant in Doral, FL, USA
