Everytime thesedays Miss Nepal is Newari. I see lot of thakuri and bahun girls in Nepal who are super hot like movie actress but maybe because Miss nepal organizer is Newari they select Newari girls only. They should call it Miss Newar and not Miss Nepal

Very good point. it's because house of karnikar, raj bhandaris, Shresthas run the Nepali market.. it's all set up... same thing happened to the last miss Nepal too, although she looks like a horse..

What a ridiculous thought about other castes. Not only Newaris were Miss Nepal in the past. There were Subbas, Limbus, Gurungs, etc too. I know most of them are Newaris but the thing is that other castes are not really paying attention in such activities. Most of the Mongolian girls get married with Lahures and Brahman girls are busy only in school and career. So don't play no race card out here.

You might be right about other castes being busy in their own things. Even in last few ANA the Miss ANA were newaris.

don't play race game but good job on showing your true color by saying brahmans are busy in school and career and mongolians are busy in marrying lahures.. so only newars have time to go for competition.. great netural un biased explanation, bravo...

Did you actually watch the show?

Miss Nepal is not only about Beauty, nor does it have policies where seats are reserved based on a person's ethnicity.

Most Miss Nepals (including 5 of the past 6 year's- Evana Manandhar, Ishani Shrestha, Shristi Shrestha, Malina Joshi, Sadickchha Shrestha) are from Newar community because frankly they outdid their competitors and rivals. Newars are generally an urban class of people so they are well-educated, smart, confident, plus have the money to afford this. Modern Newar girls are taught the value of education and career right from the childhood level. Look it up in youtube how smartly Newar girls answered the question-answer rounds the past years even though frankly a few of them were no where close to being "beautiful" compared to others. This question answer round is especially do or die, and however beautiful you might be, as long as these girls are not smart and can handle the stressful situation, they won't be selected in the top 5. Again, Miss Nepal is not just about beauty, they test the girls on their personality, smartness, etiquette, talent, among others.

It is also interesting to note that majority of the 1st and 2nd Runner-Ups in this context have also been Newars (Dibyata Vaidya, Prinsha Shrestha, Sonie Rajbhandari, Nagma Shrestha, Sahana Vajracharya, Sarina Maskey)

the fact is, newars are the most privilaged community(and not an ethnic group since they are a mix of tibetans,kirats,indian aryans,khas) in nepal.most of them are in ktm valley with pretty good economic standard and are the most well they get reservation quota even u r a son/daughter of a billionaire. so its a win win situation for them.the business world is also pretty much newar-marwari unlike big city bahuns whose only chance in life is to get a decent education and be a professional (doc,lecturer,lawyer,banker) or do netagiri and earn his living from that, newars have all their fingers in ghiu. thats why they are also overrepresented in sarkari nokari(after bahuns).business,professionals etc.
i think the only oppression which had been done to newars was the linguistic oppression since time immorable(by kirats,then indian lichhivis and mallas and then shah/ranas).
so this prosperity reflects on the field of adventure,lifestyle ,and fun. its like the jews, because jews are prosperous as a community ,they pursue their interests in art,cinemas,extreme sports,literature etc.

The Civil Service Act and the Nepal Army Act contain provisions ensuring 55 percent of seats for open competition and 45 percent for reservation quotas.
also the ministry of education has a 45%+ reservation for higher education and scholarships/ research and vocational trainings.There is also reservation quota in the police, armed police and government corporations(NAC,salt trading,oil nigam) amounting to 40%+ of the total seats.
these seats are for adivasi-janajati,dalits and madhesis and newars fal under adivasi-janajati,right?

My 2 cents:
Evana compensated her lack of height with fluency in English - she is reportedly doing Master in the US. Communication skills count a lot in fashions as well as in professional careers.
All Miss Worlds and Universe's happen to have a fluency in spoken languages. I don't mean to sound bad, but in Nepal, we can hardly talk using good, complete sentences... half the time the sentences are broken ones; the other half will have no meaning if you try to analyze them by syntax (grammar) and semantics (logics) (I mean even if you discount the fact that they are often colloquial sentences). Many say in Nepal, "Kuro namile ni bhab bujhe pugdaina ra?"

I have seen TV news and shows in Nepali where they complete the sentences using words like "U tyo", "Tyo liera au" without definite references to anything, but the amazing thing is most tend to understand what it is meant by "Tyo" and "Uu". But these kinds of habit are really easy to pick up but are a drag on your communication skills.

Different people have different ideas about what is beautiful. 
सुन्दर खड्का मेरा दाईका साथि हुन् : उनि आफु सुन्दर छैनन् बिहे गर्न लाइ निकै खोज गरिएको हो : साथिभाइले ठोकिदे भन्दा खै मेरो मन ले खाएन भन्थे |  एक दिन मालामा उनिएर घर आए | अनि सबैले लौ हेरुम न त हुने बाला भाउजुको फोटो भन्दा खोकिला बाट निकालेर साथीको हातमा थमाई दिन्छन : साथि हरु मुखा मुख गर्छन अनि सुन्दर दाई भन्छ | आफ्नो आखातिर देखाउंदै " यी गुच्चा खोलेर तिम्रो मा राखी दिन सके था हा पाउन्थ्यौ कति राम्री छ भनेर"  !
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

the way somebody said Newars are most educated and highly professional is wrong. Go to Maharjgung, Bisanagar, Bansbari, Dhapasi, Chandol, Baluwatar, Budanilkantha, Dhobikhola area ext, u will still see newars living in their muddy huts and farming in the field crazy wearing that newark dress everyday. Lots of my newer ferns have low education. They drink, smoke gaga and fight all the time. Tyo tole ko ketali kutna jay this n that. Keta haru bigrera, school nagayera aile batty banaune, pani pump banaune, inner khanne kaam barchan. Koi jagga bechera gaur banayera rent ma aaru lai diyera paisa kamchan, koi pasal cholera baseka chan. kasari bhanne ki all newars are eel educated and in a high ranking jobs. I think Brahmans are the most well educated and in high ranking jobs in Nepal. They are like whites in US. Newars are like hispanics in US and Mongolians are like blacks in US.

Rajesh BP is partially correct in that most Newari Participants come from affluent backgrounds and talent, education are highly valued.

But he forgot to mention that Bahunis and Chhetrinis - especially the ladies belonging to 'decent' families aren't at all forthcoming when it comes to beauty contests. Most of them prefer using their 'talent' in some different areas. Matter of fact, very few Bahun, Chhetri/Thakuri families allow their daughters to get into glamor industry.

But then, these contests tend to be skewed more than other similar ones - ANFA qualifications for eg.

It is frankly racist stereotype to say Bahuns are busy in education hence they don't care for competitions like Miss Nepal when Bahuns form the majority of participating contestants in Miss Nepal each year. But yes, many strict, conservative and upper-class Newar, Bahun, Chhetri families do not allow their daughters to participate in this. But things might be chaning - I mean Shristi studied in UK, Ishani and now Evana studied in Shuvatara School and US. How many ordinary Nepalis can actually say they send their sons/daughters to top schools of Nepal and US?

Regarding Reservation/Quota system, Nepal Government has made it mandatory (atleast on paper) for government agencies, I/NGOs, and other services to provide specific quotas (45%) for people hailing from communities like Indigenous (Adivasi), Tribal (Janjati), Madhesi, Women, Disabled, Geographic area etc. With context to Newars, they are false-fully termed as a single ethnic group when in fact Newar is not a specific ethnicity or caste - it is in fact a linguistic community/nation that comprises of various ethnicities (Kirats, Tibetans, Rajputs, Karnats (Madhesi), Khas, Tamang, Kanyakubja, Lichcavis, Vrijjs, Indigenous, etc.), various castes (Dya Brahman, Tirute Brahman, Chathari (Kshatri) Srestha, Bagha (half) Srestha, Jyapu, Sayami, Naye, etc. etc. fulfilling the varna jatis from Brahmins down to asat- Sudras), various religious sects (Shaiv, Tantra, Vaishnav, Theraveda, Mahayan, etc.) But due to the selfishness of a few so-called Newar 'leaders' and their insistent pressure, ALL Newars are termed Janajati these days. However they are generally tagged along Bahuns and Chhetris among the privileged group and in N/INGOs Newars (the higher caste ones) cannot contend for reservation based on their caste.

I think there is no relation between the caste system and Miss Nepal competition. However, i can't deny that Newari, Bhoteni, gurung/magar seni have most good looking body ;) no offense to chettri & bahun (while I am one of those).
The problem is with the organization committee, their marketing/media strategy and their outreach to other parts of Nepal than Kathmandu. Economic factor, education and attitude of people towards beauty contest also affect the participation.
I personally do not like the concept of beauty contest. The outcome of these sort of beauty contest only serves as pretty face & media. I guess the winners automatically become ambassador to few non-profits and become active until they get to participate/travel in Miss World contest. I don't see how that helps in upliftment of under-represented & underprivileged class of women in Nepal. I see Hidden Treasure Miss Nepal as an organization that objectifies women and represent only certain class of people.
