The candidates of the beauty contest had to work on a questionnaire composed of 34 questions of general culture. Discover your level now.
HASwould you have done better than the 30 regional Misses competing for the Miss France competition? Like every year, the competition’s organizing committee imposed a general culture questionnaire on all candidates. The candidates had only 40 minutes to answer the entire questionnaire, made up of 34 questions, and unveiled by The Parisian. A test that counts, in part, in the preselection of the jury.
What is the relationship between Beyoncé and Olympe de Gouges? Both appeared in the questionnaire on which the thirty candidates of the Miss France competition had to work. Like every year, the questions asked of the candidates cover a very wide spectrum of general knowledge. Thus, the Misses had to remember the name of the writer who won the last Nobel Prize in Literature last October1. Another question on the literary theme: who wrote the play Cyrano de Bergerac2 ?
Undeniably, the cultural world had a place of choice in this new questionnaire. Thus, the thirty regional Misses in the running for the final of the competition scheduled for next December had to call on their class memories or their extracurricular knowledge to answer this other question: who painted the ceiling of the Opéra Garnier in Paris? , inaugurated in 19643 ?

The climate invites itself into the competition
Beyond culture, global warming has also been invited in this passage to the grill of the candidates of the beauty contest. They therefore had to mention the name of the city where the last COP took place.4. The Misses then had to solve a problem combining logic, mathematics and reflection. “The Miss Beauty Organization is holding a beauty pageant in Singapore. Singapore’s time difference is more than seven hours compared to France. Knowing that a flight between Paris and Singapore lasts 12:50 p.m. and that Miss France leaves Paris at 8:20 a.m., at what local time does Miss France arrive in Singapore? ” What is your answer5 ?
Finally, among the 34 questions asked of all the candidates, there is one which particularly concerns the next edition of the competition. What are the people of Châteauroux called?6 ? Far from being anecdotal, this questionnaire is an integral part of the evaluation of the thirty Misses for the preselection carried out by the professional jury of the Miss France committee. Who will succeed Diane Leyre? For this question, the answer is still far from being recorded, since it will be necessary to wait until December 17th. In addition, if you wish to know your level on this questionnaire and to know the rest of the questions, our colleagues from the Parisian offer you a quiz with all 34 questions.
