Ruopfüzhano Whiso from Kohima, a favorite among the audience was crowned the first runners up. Naturally graceful with a humble confidence, Whiso had given an apt answer in the first round where she was asked, “What are the issues you feel strongly about in Nagaland and what can you do about it?”

Whiso had answered, “The issues that I feel strongly about is that we forget about the moral ethics that was followed by our forefathers. We forget to be honest we forget to love. We forget to think that what we do will have an impact on the future and that’s we have issues like corruption. We need to honor what our forefathers have taught us before.”

In the finalist’s round, Whiso was asked to give her opinion on the major global campaign #MeToo to highlight of sexual harassment. Fully supporting the #MeToo campaign Whiso said, “Everyone who has been through sexual abuse would know how terrifying, and how it is a memory that cannot be forgotten. It is a scar. And to confront such memories takes courage and women all over the world are confronting such dark memories to inspire other people.”

Whiso aspired to become a professor while Peweü Tunyi, who also won the Queen of hearts wanted to be a social worker. Among the 12 contestants, seven contestants were selected as the finalists namely Contestant 2 Moile Longkongly from Longleng, Contestant 5 Kepenshi from Kiphire, Contestant 3 Ruopfüzhano Whiso from Kohima, Contestant 8 Peweü Tunyi from Phek, Contestant 6 Kimiyetoly Swu from Dimapur, Contestant 12 Marina Kiho from Dimapur, Contestant 1 Pelevinuo Rüpreo.
