*This is a very creative preliminary, where a contestant is given a coconut and a white fabric about 7.5 feet (2.3m), With the fabric, the contestant may do anything with it except cut it; they can dye it and make designs on it.  Afterwards they wear their designs and also present their coconuts. It is about equal to the swimsuit competition but much more sexier and creative. It is actually two competitions in one.  It seems to have been discontinued in 2002.
